The Good Doctor, from ABC and Sony, is to air later this year on Sky Living.
“The Good Doctor is going to be a brilliant addition to Sky Living’s line up of the best-loved US drama. I personally can’t wait for the twists and turns as Dr Shaun Murphy makes his incredible mark on the medical world.” – Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky Living
The latest medical drama from ABC is set to come to UK screens via Sky this autumn. The compelling saga stars Freddie Highmore of Bates Motel fame as Dr Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome.
The Good Doctor follows Shaun Murphy as he relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the scepticism of his colleagues.
From David Shore (creator of House) and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0), The Good Doctor also stars Antonia Thomas (Misfits), Nicholas Gonzalez (The Flash), Chukuma “Chuku” Modu (Me Before You), Beau Garrett (TRON: Legacy), Hill Harper (CSI:NY), Richard Schiff (The West Wing) and Tamlyn Tomita (The Day After Tomorrow). Produced by Sony Pictures Television and ABC Studios.
“We are thrilled to expand and strengthen our relationship with Sky and to see The Good Doctor make its way to viewers in the UK.” – Angel Orengo, EVP of Distribution EMEA at Sony Pictures Television
