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).

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.
