L.A. Screenings: New from Sony Pictures Television


Sony Pictures Television (SPT) will be screening for international buyers in Los Angeles the new medical drama The Good Doctor.

In the series, Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.

SPT will also be giving buyers a look at Alex, Inc., starring Scrubs alum Zach Braff. Based on the podcast StartUp, Alex Schuman is a brilliant radio journalist, husband and father of two who is about to do something crazy—quit his job and start his own company. He quickly discovers it’s going to be a lot harder than he thought.

In S.W.A.T., a locally born S.W.A.T. sergeant is newly tasked to run a specialized tactical unit that is the last stop in law enforcement in Los Angeles. Inspired by the television series and feature film.
