Winner of a prestigious Humanitas Prize and nominated for two Emmy Awards and a People’s Choice Award in its debut season, “Scrubs” focuses on the strange experiences of fresh-faced medical intern John “J.D.” Dorian (Zach Braff, “The Broken Hearts Club”) as he embarks on his healing career in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients – where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.
Joining the rumpled J.D. at Sacred Heart Hospital are fellow interns Chris Turk (Donald Faison, “Remember the Titans,” “Felicity”) -- J.D.’s college buddy who is part of the more elite surgical group, and the beautiful but socially awkward Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, “Roseanne”).
Keeping a watchful eye over these young doctors are the caustic chief of medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins, “Courage Under Fire”); the abrasive but caring Dr. Perry Cox (John C. McGinley, “Wall Street,” “Platoon”); and no-nonsense nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes, “Oz”). Neil Flynn (“Magnolia”) also portrays J.D.’s nemesis, the hospital janitor, who never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.
Named a “Future Classic” by the TV Land cable network, “Scrubs” averaged a 5.3 rating and a 13 share among adults 18-49 in its first season and is the highest-rated new comedy series to return for the 2002-03 season.
