‘Scrubs,’ ‘M.A.S.H,’ ‘House’ and More TV Doctors Unite for New Ads
TV medical dramas are not all they once were, with Grey’s Anatomy headed into its umpteenth season, and greats like ER or M*A*S*H long since off the air, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect your health. TV docs from Scrubs to House unite for a new series of ads urging people to get annual checkups.
The impressive Cigna series of ads features Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein, House), Captain “Hawkeye” Pierce (Alan Alda, M*A*S*H), Dr. Turk (Donald Faison, Scrubs), Dr. Carter (Noah Wyle, ER), and even McDreamy himself (Patrick Dempsey, Grey’s Anatomy). The stars all play themselves, but nonetheless have some solid medical advice to consider.
It’s an impressive collection of TV doctors (even more impressive, given Dempsey was quoted as wishing he’d left his TV medicine gig even earlier), but all in service of a good cause. You can watch the full set of videos above, and stay tuned for the latest.
