STAYING CENTERED. Seasoned actor Matt Czuchry talks about the excitement and challenges for his new medical drama show “The Resident”
DA MAN – After reappearing as one of his most iconic characters 2016’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” to much acclaim, Matt Czuchry is set to once again grace the small screen in another drama series with huge potential. Make that a “medical drama.” This year sees Czuchry as the main lead in “The Resident,” which takes on the highly competitive genre with a new take on the tension and turmoil that builds up within a hospital’s walls. And it certainly seems that Czuchry is enjoying his newest project.
DA MAN: Hi, Matt. awesome to have you with us for the magazine. How are you doing?
Matt Czuchry: Thank you for having me. I am doing well. Currently I am in New York City doing press for “The Resident.” It is fun being here and seeing all of the billboards promoting the show.

They have the ability to save lives and they have the power to cover up. Don’t miss the all-new series from FOX, THE RESIDENT.
Fox has picked up a second hourlong pilot to series. Medical drama The Resident, which had been running right behind Marvel’s The Gifted as the second-most-buzzed Fox drama pilot over the past month, has landed on the Fox schedule alongside The Gifted, which was picked up Tuesday.
It is unclear whether Fox will pick up more dramas, with some speculating that this might be it. The network has not passed on any pilots yet, and it only produced four hourlong pilots this year: the two picked up to series as well as the untitled University Project and Behind Enemy Lines. Neither of the remaining ones is getting major traction at the moment, though a pickup still is considered a possibility depending on Fox’s needs, and the University drama has been screening and testing relatively well. (Fox is yet to film two drama pilots ordered this season, The Passage and The Beast, and the network is said to have high hopes for The Passage as a potential midseason entry.)
Written by Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, directed by Phillip Noyce and executive produced by Antoine Fuqua, The Resident stars Matt Czuchry, Manish Dayal, Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp and Shaunette Wilson. It centers on a tough, brilliant senior resident who guides an idealistic young doctor through his first day, pulling back the curtain on what really happens, both good and bad, in modern-day medicine.
Jones, Fuqua and Noyce executive produce alongside Oly Obst and David Boorstein, while Schore and Sethi serve as co-executive producers for 20th Century Fox TV, 3 Arts Entertainment & Fuqua Films.
