Craig Robinson, Jason Schwartzman and Rob Corddry are just a few of the big names joining Medical police stars Rob Huebel and Erinn Hayes in guest roles.
The new Netflix series Medical police promises to bring the irreverent comedy styles of cult comedy Children’s hospital to a wider audience by expanding the world of the long series Adult Swim through the characters played by Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel.
For the uninitiated, Hayes and Huebel play Lola Adolf Spratt and Owen Maestro. Lola is not only a brilliant doctor, but also a lawyer, a Muslim, a ventriloquist and someone who faked her own death to avoid too many emails. Her former boyfriend Owen is also a doctor and former New York City police officer (where he partnered with Nick Offerman’s character, Briggs). You might know him as the star of this very famous GIF (from Children’s hospital).
Medical police will see these two unlikely partners recruited by the US government to find a cure for a virus threatening civilization. In the process, they will discover a dark conspiracy that will lead them across the world. While this is truly Hayes and Huebel’s series (these are the only two characters to appear in all ten episodes of the series), they are supported both in front and behind the camera by a cast of stars from comedy as we have rarely seen.
