Medical Police: Netflix orders comedy from Children’s Hospital creators

The creative team behind the Emmy Award-winning comedy series Childrens Hospital brings an action-packed thriller, mystery, and love story called Medical Police to Netflix.

The story revolves around two American physicians, played by Erinn Hayes (AP Bio) and Rob Huebel (Transparent).

In addition to stars Hayes and Huebel, Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Lake Bell (Bojack Horseman), Rob Corddry (Ballers), and Ken Marino (Black Monday) will all have recurring guest star roles.

Television Group’s Studio 2.0. It was distributed by Warner Bros. Television and was based upon the Webby Award-winning digital series that debuted on in 2008.
