Royal Pains is a USA cable network television series starring Mark Feuerstein. The pilot was filmed in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York in fall 2008. The Hollywood Reporter reported on January 5 that the series was picked up for a 12-episode season. This show premiered on Thursday, June 4, 2009. The pilot was directed by Jace Alexander, who also filmed the pilot of Burn Notice, another USA show, which airs in the hour before Royal Pains. Andrew Lenchewski wrote the pilot and Rich Frank and Paul Frank executive produce the project, with Lenchewski co-executive producing and John Rogers producing.
The show is about a New York City doctor, Hank Lawson, who loses it all after a principled decision in the emergency room in which he saves the life of a complete stranger at the cost of life of an elderly billion dollar hospital trustee. His brother, Evan Lawson, convinced him to go partying in the Hamptons for a weekend. When they crash a party and Hank saves an ailing woman's life, he haphazardly becomes a concierge doctor for the rich and famous in the Hamptons.
Physician assistant, Divya, insists on becoming Hank's employee, even though he has no intention of becoming a concierge doctor.
