PRESS RELEASE: Last season’s cliffhanger involved Hank and Evan’s father Eddie R. Lawson (Henry Winkler) suffering a heart attack after his sons discovered some startling secrets. ROYAL PAINS stars Mark Feuerstein as Hank Lawson who, after becoming blacklisted from the medical community, revives his career as a “doctor for hire” to the rich and famous in the Hamptons. In addition to treating this select group of the East End elite, Hank also caters to the town’s less fortunate by donating his time at the local clinic. He finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others. The show also stars Paulo Costanzo (“Road Trip”), Reshma Shetty (“30 Rock”) and Jill Flint (“Gossip Girl”). ROYAL PAINS is executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski (“UC: Undercover”) and Michael Rauch (“Love Monkey”), as well as Rich Frank (“Comanche Moon”), Paul Frank (“Comanche Moon”) and Jeff Kwatinetz (“Big Momma’s House”) from Prospect Park. Christine Sacani (“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2”) and John P. Rogers (“Hide & Seek”) also serve as co-executive producers. ROYAL PAINS films entirely in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations around The Hamptons. Multiple Golden Globe and Emmy winning actor Henry Winkler continues to recur in his role as Eddie R. Lawson; plus Brooke D’Orsay returns as Paige Collins. Jim Gaffigan (“My Boys”), Julianne Nicholson (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), Gilles Marini (“Sex and the City”) and singer John Legend will also guest star this season.
MARK FEUERSTEIN dishes on the return of ROYAL PAINS, what it’s like working with the cast and so much more. Mark does such an incredible job portraying a caring and considerate doctor that if he was a doctor in real life I would go to him and I hate doctors. My world needs a little HankMed in it. Don’t miss the return of ROYAL PAINS on Thursday nights at 9 PM EST only on USA NETWORK.
