About House M.D.
HOUSE M.D., (Mondays, 8:00–9:00 PM ET/PT), is an innovative take on the medical drama in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.
DR. GREGORY HOUSE (Hugh Laurie), devoid of bedside manner and dealing with his own constant physical pain, uses a cane that punctuates his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. His behavior often borders on antisocial, but House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. House shepherds an elite team of experts who help him unravel diagnostic mysteries, including plastic surgeon DR. CHRIS TAUB (Peter Jacobson) and enigmatic former “contestant” number Thirteen, DR. REMY HADLEY (Olivia Wilde). He has a confidant and good friend in oncology specialist DR. JAMES WILSON (Robert Sean Leonard), and maintains a somewhat volatile and undefined relationship with DR. LISA CUDDY (Lisa Edelstein), the Dean of Medicine and hospital administrator. Neurologist DR. ERIC FOREMAN (Omar Epps) serves as Cuddy’s eyes and ears on House’s team.
HOUSE M.D., which celebrated its 100th episode milestone in February 2009, has been honored with three Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has been honored with 20 Emmy Award nominations, including four for Outstanding Drama Series and four for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series). The series has received many other awards and accolades including the 2006 Humanitas Prize, two Golden Globe Awards for Laurie, three NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Drama Series, and one NAACP Image Award win for Omar Epps (Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series), as well as a Peabody Award for Best of Electronic Media and two consecutive People’s Choice Awards for Favorite TV Drama.
HOUSE is from Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with Universal Media Studios. Katie Jacobs, David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Bryan Singer, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner and Thomas L. Moran are executive producers.
