Description

Royal Pains is an American medical comedy-drama television series created by Andrew Lenchewski and John P. Rogers and produced by Universal Cable Productions about a young E.R. doctor who, after being wrongly blamed for a patient's death, moves to the Hamptons and becomes the reluctant "doctor for hire" to the rich and famous.

Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) is a rising star in the New York City medical community, until he loses everything fighting for the life of a patient. With his career stalled and his personal life in shambles, Hank is in need of a new beginning.

That's where his younger brother Evan (Paulo Costanzo) steps in.

Fed up with Hank's personal pity-party, he convinces Hank to join him on a last-minute trip to the Hamptons for Memorial Day weekend.

When the brothers crash a party at the home of a Hamptons billionaire and a guest falls critically ill, Hank saves the day. His dramatic medical rescue draws attention from the crowd, and soon Hank's phone starts ringing off the hook with patients demanding house calls.

Inadvertently, Hank has become the hot new "concierge doctor" in town.

Though Hank is initially reluctant to embrace this new career, with encouragement from Evan and an ambitious young woman who volunteers to be his physician assistant he decides to stay in town for the summer.

Once again solving medical crises and helping those in need, Hank is back to doing what he does best. And now he's reinvented himself as the Hamptons' hottest new doctor-in-demand.

Also starring Reshma Shetty, Jill Flint, Campbell Scott, Brooke D'Orsay and Ben Shenkman.

From Universal Cable Productions, Royal Pains is written and executive produced by Michael Rauch and Andrew Lenchewski. Rich Frank also serves as executive producer along with Jeff Kwatinetz from Prospect Park and Connie Burge.

Co-executive producers are Carol Flint, Jon Sherman, Kerry Orent and Jack Bernstein.
