US Remake of “Good Doctor” in the Works?
The KBS Drama “Good Doctor” is currently under negotiations for a US remake according to a representative from KBS Drama.
In an interview with MBN Star on May 22, the KBS Drama representative said, “The format sale of ‘Good Doctor’ is still being discussed at the US broadcasting company CBS. It is still in talks with the company and nothing is final yet.”
“‘Good Doctor’ was shown in the foreign drama market and through this, they have shown an interest in the drama. However, we still cannot confirm about the contract,” the representative added.
“Even if the rights are sold, we have to first see the response to the pilot episode in the US and decide the official broadcast so it seems that it will take some time,” the representative explained.
“Good Doctor” received a lot of good reviews when it aired last year for its interesting story line that showed the growth of Park Shi On (Joo Won), an autistic savant who becomes a genius pediatric surgeon.
