Upfronts 2012: Watch a preview of 'The Mob Doctor'

May 14, 2012 |  4:40 pm

The Mob Doctor
Fox's only new drama for the fall takes two familiar genres (the medical drama and the mob drama) and smooshes them together to create something new. The mobical drama?

"The Mob Doctor" stars Jordana Spiro as a promising young physician who finds herself involved with made men from the South Side of Chicago when she has to take them on as patients to pay off her brother's gambling debts. So the young lady doc spends her days in the ER and her nights patching up wiseguys. Of course no one on the hospital realizes what she's up to.

The series was created by TV writers Josh Berman and Rob Wright, most recently of the series "Drop Dead Diva," and was executive produced by director Michael Dinner.

William Forsythe plays the head mobster, Constantine Alexander, Zach Gilford plays her boyfriend and James Carpinello plays her ex-boyfriend and current mob guy, Franco.

The series airs at 9 p.m. Mondays.
