Scrubs tells the story of of J.D., a fresh-faced medical resident, and his strange experiences in a surreal hospital crammed full of unpredictable staffers and patients -- where humor and tragedy can merge paths at any time.
Joining the rumpled J.D. at Sacred Heart Hospital are fellow residents Chris Turk (Donald Faison, "Remember the Titans," "Felicity") - J.D.'s college buddy who is part of the more elite surgical group - and the beautiful but socially awkward Elliot Reid (Sarah Chalke, "Roseanne").
Keeping a watchful eye over these young doctors are the caustic Chief of Medicine, Dr. Bob Kelso (Ken Jenkins, "Courage Under Fire"), the abrasive but caring Dr. Perry Cox (John C. McGinley, "Wall Street," "Platoon"), the no-nonsense Nurse Carla Espinosa (Judy Reyes, "Oz"), and the hospital janitor (Neil Flynn ("Magnolia") who is J.D.'s nemesis and never seems to miss an opportunity to harass his target.
"Scrubs" is produced by Touchstone Television. Bill Lawrence ("Spin City") is the executive producer and creator.
