The creative team that brought you the multiple Emmy Award-winning comedy series “Childrens Hospital” is working on a new thriller, mystery, and love story called “Medical Police.” The new series is bringing back a lot of the same talent from “Childrens Hospital,” both behind the camera and in front of it, so fans of that show should keep this new series on their radar.
The “Medical Police” series will star Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel, with Malin Akerman, Lake Bell, Rob Corddry, and Ken Marino set in recurring guest star roles. Warner Horizon Scripted Television is the studio behind the show, and Netflix has already ordered ten, thirty-minute episodes for Season 1.
Netflix described the series adding “Two American physicians (Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel) stationed at a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, discover a civilization-threatening virus and are recruited as government agents in a race against time and around the world to find a cure and uncover a dark conspiracy.”
Rob Corddry, Krister Johnson, Jonathan Stern, and David Wain serve as Executive Producers and writers on the series. Netflix also confirmed that David Wain and Bill Benz are attached as directors for the first season. Netflix stopped short of confirming a release date for the new series, but more information will be announced at a later date.
Netflix also confirmed the voice cast for the upcoming “Green Eggs & Ham” animated series today. The video-streaming service also released a first-look trailer for the Mötley Crüe film “The Dirt.” That project is based on Mötley Crüe’s 2001 best-selling autobiography and follows the sex, drugs, rock ‘n roll, fame, and the high price of excess that the band has endured over the decades. The story follows Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), Tommy Lee (Colson Baker), and Vince Neil (Daniel Webber) as they become one of the leading rock bands in the 1980s.
Netflix also set a premiere date for the back-half of “Arrested Development Season 5” which is returning with new episodes in March.
