As far as the multi-cam sitcom pilots that have been ordered this pilot season, Dr. Ken ordered by ABC might be one of the most intriguing ones.
While the premise of a doctor trying to balance work and family seems like pretty safe territory for a sitcom, the team of Ken Jeong, Mike O’Connell, Jared Stern, and Mike Sikowitz might be cooking up something that’s more high concept and out there than you might initially think.
Jeong was a practicing doctor before he got into stand-up and went by a moniker that serves the title of this show, Dr. Ken. Together O’Connell and Jeong made this music video for What’s It Gonna Be before Ken made a name for himself in The Hangover franchise and Community. Also, O’Connell is one hell of a comedian himself as you can see in him performing his song “Little Asian Babies” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Of course, we don’t know what exactly is being written and shot behind close stage doors here, but we suspect that it won’t be your typical multi-cam.
