I’ve added some photos of Matt attending the 2017 FOX Upfront at Wollman Rink, Central Park in New York City (May 15). Matt was at the event to promote his new series The Resident, and was joined by his co-stars Emily VanCamp, Bruce Greenwood, and Manish Dayal.
An official trailer for Matt’s new series, The Resident, has been released!
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.
Exciting news! It has been reported that Matt is joining FOX’s new medical-drama, The Resident.
‘Gilmore Girls’ Grad Matt Czuchry Joins Fox Medical Drama
Gilmore Girls grad Matt Czuchry is scrubbing in.
The actor has signed on to star in Fox’s medical-drama pilot The Resident, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The project follows an idealistic young doctor as he begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern-day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.
Czuchry will play Conrad Hawkins, a cocky third-year resident at Kings County Hospital. He joins a cast that also includes Manish Dayal and Bruce Greenwood.
Amy Holden Jones (Black Box), Hayley Schore (Code Black) and Roshan Sethi (Code Black) wrote the pilot. Jones will executive produce with Fuqua and Oly Obst, while Schore and Sethi are attached as co-exec producers. Phillip Noyce will direct. 20th Television will produce in association with 3 Arts Entertainment and Fuqua Films.
At Fox, Czuchry joins his Gilmore Girls co-star Lauren Graham, who is set to headline the comedy pilot Linda From HR.
The Resident comes fresh off of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival, in which Czuchry appeared in all four installments.
“It always comes down to, when I read that script, if I’m going to be heartbroken if I don’t get that role,” Czuchry told THR in November when asked about his next role after Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. “So it’s really that gut feeling of reading the character and the material and then looking at who are the people associated with this, and if it is a TV show, what are the themes moving forward, how many episodes is it, where is it shot? A lot of things come into play.”
Before returning to Stars Hollow, Czuchry wrapped a seven-season run on The Good Wife. The actor, whose other credits include Friday Night Lights, is repped by Gersh and Thruline.
