Matt Czuchry The Resident

Good Wife Vet Matt Czuchry to Star in Medical Pilot The Resident at Fox

Matt Czuchry is trading in suits for scrubs.

The ex-Good Wife legal eagle has nabbed the co-lead in Fox’s medical-themed drama pilot The Resident , TVLine has learned.

The potential series — written and EP’d by Amy Holden Jones (ABC’s Black Box), and Code Black duo Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi — centers on Devon Pravesh (played by Halt and Catch Fire‘s Manish Dayal), an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident, Conrad Hawkins (played by Czuchry), who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.

Since wrapping his seven-year stint as Cary Agos on The Good Wife last spring, Czuchry reprised his role as Logan Huntzberger in Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

    Hopefully he’ll get better writers than he did on the last few seasons of TGW.

  2. Pam says:

    So “main” role?

  3. Larc says:

    Poor Matt. Since he no longer has income from TGW, he apparently can’t afford a razor.

  4. Sarahii says:

    He deserves to be the STAR in something.
    This sounds a bit meh…tbh

    While I like Matt and I hope he does well, Fox isn’t renewing Pitch yet. The more they announve, the more worried I get. It is the only show I am fully rooting for.

    • Ames says:

      I feel the same way… After all the renewals of the last few weeks I’m feeling less than optimistic. Come on Fox! If you cancel my favorite new show I will be way less inclined to give anymore new shows a chance.

  6. Pat says:

    Apparently in the original description of the pilot Matt’s character was described as a senior resident who appears tough and brilliant, but turns out to be a cunning and deadly psychopath…wondering if they’ll sitck with the original idea…
    The show was described as a dark medica drama and “The project’s take on the medical drama genre is being compared to what The Shield did for police procedurals”

  7. Marie58 says:

    I’ll watch Matt in anything. Count me in.

  8. Stacy says:

    Czuchry’s been in need of a lead role for a while, so I’m excited. Fingers crossed the writing for the show is up to par.

  9. Lerbert says:

    If it was cable…but like with the Lauren Graham announcement I don’t have much hope for longetivity for these shows on Fox.

  10. Collette says:

    Yayy! Logan Huntzberger is back!

  11. Ally Oop says:

    This premise has potential and I am always up for watched Matt Czuchry.
