HOUSE(Mondays, 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)
HOUSE, an innovative take on the medical drama, is a series 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.
HOUSE has been honored with five Emmy Awards, including an award for creator and executive producer David Shore (Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series). The series has been honored with 25 Emmy Award nominations, including four for Outstanding Drama Series and six for Hugh Laurie (Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series).
Additionally, HOUSE received two Golden Globe Awards for Laurie (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series) and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Laurie (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series) as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series); three Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series, Drama; three NAACP Image Award nominations for Outstanding Drama Series; and two NAACP Image Awards for Omar Epps (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series).
DR. GREGORY HOUSE (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. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives.
House works with an elite team of experts who help him unravel diagnostic mysteries, including neurologist DR. ERIC FOREMAN (Omar Epps), plastic surgeon DR. CHRIS TAUB (Peter Jacobson), surgeon DR. ROBERT CHASE (Jesse Spencer), prison clinic physician DR. JESSICA ADAMS (Odette Annable) and DR. CHI PARK (Charlyne Yi). He has a confidant and good friend in oncology specialist DR. JAMES WILSON (Robert Sean Leonard).
When Season Eight begins, many months have passed since House drove his car into Cuddy’s living room in the Season Seven finale episode, and House is serving out a prison sentence. When a medical emergency ends his sentence early, he quickly discovers the landscape and hierarchy of the Diagnostic Medicine department at Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, which he previously presided over, has gone through a transition in his absence. Upon his unconventional return, he is forced to submit to a surprising new chain of command and deal with personnel changes to his team.
HOUSE is from Heel and Toe Films, Shore Z Productions and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with Universal Television. Katie Jacobs, David Shore, Paul Attanasio, Bryan Singer, Russel Friend, Garrett Lerner, Thomas L. Moran, Peter Blake, Greg Yaitanes and Hugh Laurie are executive producers.
