Roger Corser.

Filming is set to start on Nine's new drama Doctor Doctor, starring Roger Corser.

The series is now in pre-production by Essential Media & Entertainment, with executive producers Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney from the Nine Network and producers Ian Collie, Claudia Karvan and Tony McNamara from Essential Media & Entertainment. 

Filming will commence in April in Sydney and country NSW.

Doctor Doctor will also star Nicole da Silva, Ryan Johnson, Hayley McElhinney, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Tina Bursill, Chloe Bayliss and Dave Eastgate. 

The series follows Hugh Knight (Corser from Underbelly, Rush, Puberty Blues), a rising star in the heart surgery ranks. 

He is gifted, charming, infallible, a hedonist who – due to his sheer talent – believes he can live outside the rules. 

But his 'work hard, play harder' philosophy is about to come back and bite him.  

In a joint statement, Nine’s Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said: “We are delighted to join forces with Essential Media & Entertainment on this irreverent new family drama series. 

"With its stellar cast and beautiful rural setting, Doctor Doctor is a breath of fresh air and further proof of Nine's commitment to Australian content."

Doctor Doctor is proceeding with the assistance of Screen Australia.
