'Medical Police': Release date, plot, cast and all you need to know about the 'Childrens Hospital' spin-off
Netflix's 'Medical Police' follows two physicians at a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, who unwittingly discover a civilization-threatening virus
If you were a fan of 'Childrens Hospital', get set to see the dark comedy’s creative team returning to a new 10-episode spin-off 'Medical Police'. The shows stars Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel. The show is being dubbed as an action-drama thriller, a suspenseful love story and a travel-themed comedy series.
The comedy series is all set to premiere on Netflix this January 10.
The show follows two physicians (Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel) stationed at a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, who unwittingly discover a civilization-threatening virus. They're soon recruited as secret government agents and find themselves in a race against time to find a cure, all the while uncovering a dark conspiracy at the center of the outbreak.
Erinn Hayes plays Dr Lola Spratt in the series. The actress was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series for the same role in 'Childrens Hospital' and is known for her work on shows such as 'The Winner' (2007), 'Worst Week' (2008–2009), and 'Guys with Kids' (2012–2013).
Rob Huebel plays the role of Dr Owen Maestro in the series. The actor is also known for his stint as Len Novak on the Amazon series 'Transparent'.
Sarayu Blue plays Sloane McIntyre on the show. The actress is best known for her role as Angela on the Fox sitcom 'Sons of Tucson' and Dr Sydney Napur on 'Monday Mornings'. She also played a small part in CBS' new sitcom 'The Unicorn'.
Malin Akerman, Lake Bell, Rob Corddry, and Ken Marino — all of whom were series regulars on 'Childrens Hospital' — will also be seen in the new spin-off.
The show has been created by Rob Corddry, Krister Johnson, and Jonathan Stern. David Wain will write and executive-produce the 30-minute episodes for Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Wain and Bill Benz will direct the show.
Netflix rolled out a two-minute trailer on December 19. "From the creators of 'Childrens Hospital' (starring Rob Huebel and Erinn Hayes) comes the totally-not-a-spinoff 'Medical Police' (also starring Rob Huebel and Erinn Hayes)," the clip was captioned.
It further read, "When a mysterious illness threatens the fate of our planet and life as we know it, a cast of characters who have no business saving the world may be our only hope."
