Scrubs already proved once that extending the franchise is no guarantee of success, even if the NBC-turned-ABC comedy ditched half the original cast for its Interns continuation. That said, Netflix has managed to revive a number of fan-favorites, so what would Zach Braff say to giving a Scrubs revival series the full greenlight?
TV medical dramas are not all they once were, with Grey’s Anatomy headed into its umpteenth season, and greats like ER or M*A*S*H long since off the air, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your health. TV docs from Scrubs to House unite for a new series of adds urging people to get annual checkups.
Nine years of Scrubs and multiple movies earned star Zach Braff his pick of projects, though it seems the erstwhile Dr. Dorian has been paged back to ABC. Braff has confirmed a TV return with a new ABC single-camera comedy, given a put-pilot commitment.
Through all its seven season on NBC and one (technically two, if you're feeling masochistic) on ABC, medical comedy 'Scrubs' was a truly unique series that deftly switched between drama and comedy. But with any good single camera comedy with one foot out of reality, a love of musical theatre was bursting out the seams in more episodes than the show's designated musical episode. But now that 'Scrubs' has long fallen by the wayside, might the next stop for Bill Lawrence's Sacred Heart crew be Broadway?
