NBC just announced that its popular medical drama ER will continue for at least two more years. The series has broken a lot of ground in it's 9-year run. In addition to advancing the careers of actors like George Clooney, Anthony Edwards, and Julianna Margulies, it has brought TV's first physically-disabled lesbian character to the small screen. Actress Laura Innes's portrayal of Dr. Keri Weaver has won two Emmy nominations - and the approval of the show's fans. Laura Innes is coming to town this weekend to speak at a Human Rights Campaign fundraiser. She took a few minutes to talk to ideastream's April Baer about Dr. Weaver's evolution.
