Daniel Dae Kim Sets Producing Path With ‘The Good Doctor’

With his work in Lost and most recently Hawaii Five-0, Daniel Dae Kim has carved out a successful career in the television industry (cinema wise, he was recently cast in director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy). Now Kim is an executive producer of The Good Doctor, and during the TCAs he talked about how he brought the project stateside.


The Good Doctor -
THE GOOD DOCTOR – “Mount Rushmore” – Dr. Shaun Murphy’s attention to detail complicates his first day at St. Bonaventure Hospital. Meanwhile, Dr. Claire Browne learns a valuable lesson about honesty when confronted with a difficult diagnosis for her patient. “The Good Doctor” airs MONDAY, OCTOBER 2 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.

I’m very proud to be a part of this show,” said Daniel Dae Kim. “It’s one that I saw several years ago after it aired in Korea. It started as a Korean series and I loved the message of it. And it was a very familiar genre to American audiences in that it’s a medical show and I thought it would be a really good opportunity to make it in America. That was the impetus for me to try and bring it over. But everyone knows that it’s not enough to have the right intellectual property – you have to have the right people behind it and that’s why it was such a crucial element to be able to bring someone like David (Shore) aboard to bring this vision to life.”

With Kim believing that there could be “something special” with The Good Doctor, it begs the question if he will remain behind the scenes with the show or actually put on his acting hat. Listen to Kim answer that TCA question below (he mentions The Good Doctor co-stars Nicholas Gonzalez and Antonia Thomas in the clip):

The Good Doctor, headlined by Freddie Highmore, premieres Monday, September 29 on ABC (10/9c).
