Indosiar now airing House TV Series every Thuersday until Friday at 2.00 predawn. House, also known as House, M.D., is an American medical drama that debuted on the Fox network on November 16, 2004. The show was created by David Shore and executive produced by Shore and film director Bryan Singer. The show revolves around Dr. Gregory House (British actor Hugh Laurie), a cynical medical genius with an addiction to painkillers and a damaged leg arising from an incorrect diagnosis, who heads a team of diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital (PPTH).
The show’s premise was created by Shore, who got the idea for the curmudgeonly title character from a visit to a teaching hospital. Initially, Singer wanted an American to play House, but British actor Hugh Laurie’s audition convinced him that a foreign actor could play the role. Shore wrote House as a character with parallels to Sherlock Holmes; both are forensic geniuses, musicians, drug users, aloof, and largely friendless. The show is filmed in Century City, although it takes place in New Jersey.
Dr. House often clashes with his boss, hospital administrator and Dean of Medicine, Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), and his diagnostic team, because his theories about a patient’s illness tend to be based on subtle or controversial insights. House’s only true friend is Dr. James Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), head of the Department of Oncology. House’s original diagnostic team consisted of Dr. Robert Chase (Jesse Spencer), Dr. Allison Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), and Dr. Eric Foreman (Omar Epps). At the end of the third season, this team is disbanded and House gradually whittles down a field of forty applicants to a new team consisting of Dr. Foreman, Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley (Olivia Wilde), Dr. Chris Taub (Peter Jacobson) and Dr. Lawrence Kutner (Kal Penn). The original doctors still appear throughout the series, with Foreman rehired to House’s team, Chase as Chief of Surgery, and Cameron becoming the Department Head of the emergency room.
House has received much critical acclaim and gained high ratings ever since its premiere. During the 2007-08 United States television season, the series was the most-watched scripted program on TV and the third-most-watched program overall, behind American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. The show has also received various awards and nominations, including a Peabody Award, two Golden Globe Awards and three Primetime Emmy Awards. In 2008, Shore announced that a spin-off, centering on a character introduced in season five, will be created.
