Just What The Doctor Ordered!

Mike Li  is shooting a role on the ABC TV Pilot ‘The Good Doctor‘.

Beau Garrett (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) is set for a key series-regular role opposite Richard Schiff and Freddie Highmore in The Good Doctor, ABC’s medical drama pilot from House creator David Shore and Hawaii Five-O co-star Daniel Dae Kim.

Written by Shore based on a South Korean format and directed by Seth Gordon,The Good Doctor centers on Dr. Shaun Murphy (Highmore), a young surgeon with Savant syndrome who is recruited into the pediatric surgical unit of a prestigious hospital. Garrett will play Jessica Preston, a hospital board member who is a friend of Dr. Glassman (Schiff) and sides with him as he presents his protégé, Dr. Shaun Murphy, to the board. Garrett plays Phoebe on Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, which recently wrapped its third season. Schiff will play Dr. Ira Glassman, President of the San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital. Glassman, a good man who wasn’t always a good man, is advocating for Murphy’s hire. He has mentored the young doctor since he was 16 and admits that Shaun is like a son to him, so Shaun’s appointment is very person.

The question will arise: can a person who doesn’t have the ability to relate to people actually save their lives?
