“Scrubs” is heading into its seventh and final season, having received two consecutive Emmy nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2005 and 2006.
In its debut year, “Scrubs” was nominated for two Emmy Awards and a People’s Choice Award. “Scrubs” has received a total of 10 Emmy nominations, and in 2005, the series won the Emmy for Outstanding Multi-Camera Picture Editing. In 2004, Scrubs was honored with a prestigious Humanitas Prize. Beginning that same year, the series received three consecutive Producers Guild Award nominations from 2004-2006.
“Scrubs” focuses on the strange experiences of Dr. John Dorian, or “J.D.” (Zach Braff, “Last Kiss,” “Garden State”), a medical resident, as he continues on his healing career in a surreal hospital, crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients — where humor and tragedy can collide at any time.
Joining the rumpled J.D. at Sacred Heart Hospital are fellow residents Chris Turk (Donald Faison, “Remember the Titans,” “Felicity”) — J.D.’s college buddy who is part of the 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 Turk’s wife and no-nonsense nurse, Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes, “Oz”). Neil Flynn (“Magnolia”), the hospital janitor, portrays J.D.’s nemesis, who never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.
“Scrubs” is produced by Touchstone Television. Bill Lawrence (“Spin City”) is the executive producer and creator.
