Why should all conversation be nice (and syrupy sweet by extension)?
HOUSE, an innovative take on the medical drama, is a series in which the villain is a medical malady and the hero is an irreverent, controversial doctor who trusts no one, least of all his patients.
DR. GREGORY HOUSE (Laurie), devoid of bedside manner and dealing with his own constant physical pain, uses a cane that punctuates his acerbic, brutally honest demeanor. His behavior often borders on antisocial, but House is a brilliant diagnostician whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts afford him a great deal of respect. An infectious disease specialist, he thrives on the challenge of solving medical puzzles in order to save lives.
House works with an elite team of experts who help him unravel diagnostic mysteries, including neurologist DR. ERIC FOREMAN (Omar Epps), plastic surgeon DR. CHRIS TAUB (Peter Jacobson), surgeon DR. 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. JAMES WILSON (Robert Sean Leonard).
