Jason Isaacs has landed the starring role in CBS’ medical drama pilot The Surgeon General.
The show is billed as a drama about the most powerful doctor in the world — take that Seattle Grace! — who fights politicians and big businesses to protect the health of everyday Americans.
Isaacs will play the title role. The Harry Potter franchise actor was most recently in primetime as the star of NBC’s Awake.
Medical shows have had a rough ride lately. While ABC’s Greys Anatomy keeps chugging away on Thursday nights, spinoff Private Practice just wrapped up its run. Fox’s The Mob Doctor crashed. »
