McCARTHY CHECKS INTO KINGDOM HOSPITAL
Actor Andrew McCarthy and Academy Award nominees Diane Ladd and Bruce Davison will star in ABC's 15-hour series Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital. The series bows Thursday, February 5 - the first night of sweeps - at 9 p.m. with a two-hour premiere. The hour-long thriller, from Sony Pictures TV and Touchstone TV, will continue in that slot in subsequent weeks.
King has already written all 15 hours of the series, which is based on the Danish miniseries Riget ('The Kingdom') from Lars Von Trier.
'Hospital' revolves around a bizarre hospital where patients and staff have chosen to ignore tell-tale signs of mysticism and unseen powers.
McCarthy will take residency as Dr. Hook, a surgeon who lives in the hospital basement and collects medical equipment. Ladd plays psychic hypochondriac Mrs. Druse, a regular in Kingdom Hospital's emergency room. Davison will star as Dr. Stegman, an arrogant, inept physician.
