Zach Braff returns to TV with a new sitcom 7 years after Scrubs

Zach Braff handed in his, well, scrubs for Scrubs back in 2010, but he’s now decided it’s time to get back onto our TV screens.

His new untitled sitcom, which will take him back to ABC, is inspired by the podcast StartUp, and the pilot has been directed by Braff himself.

It will tell the story of Alex Schuman (Braff), a radio journalist and family man who decides to pack it all in and start his own company. Brave chap.

Elsewhere, there’s a series order for The Good Doctor, starring Bates Motel‘s Freddie Highmore and developed by House‘s David Shore.

Highmore plays Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome who relocates to the countryside to join a prestigious hospital.

ABC has been busy collecting other series as well, including legal drama For the People, produced by Shonda Rhimes, which follows new lawyers on opposing sides of the court room.

There’s also The Crossing, in which refugees start to descend on a small town in America, but it’s not exactly what it seems – they’re actually from 250 years in the future and are fleeing a war in America.

Another series ABC has picked up is The Gospel of Kevin, hailing from Agent Carter‘s Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters.

It stars Jason Ritter as the title character, who is on a downward spiral of despair.

When he returns home to stay with family, he is visited by a celestial being named Yvette (Cristela Alonzo) who gives him a mission to save the world.

And in a scenario that will probably happen when Kanye West gets elected as US president in a few years, The Mayor sees an outspoken rapper (Brandon Michael Hall) run for office as a publicity stunt and actually get elected.

It’s got a big cast including Lea Michele, Bernard David Jones, Marcel Spears, Yvette Nicole Brown and David Spade.
