PRESS RELEASE: USA NETWORK PREMIERES WINTER SEASON OF LAST SUMMER’S #1 SHOW “ROYAL PAINS” PREMIERING THURSDAY, JANUARY 20 AT 9/8c. USA will premiere the second season continuation of ROYAL PAINS, the best performing freshman year of a cable series ever, on Thursday, January 20, 2011 at 9/8c. This show will be the launching pad for USA’s new series FAIRLY LEGAL, 10/9c, starring Sarah Shahi. Last season’s cliffhanger involved Hank and Evan’s father Eddie R. Lawson (Henry Winkler) suffering a heart attack after his sons discovered some startling secrets. ROYAL PAINS stars Mark Feuerstein as Hank Lawson who, after becoming blacklisted from the medical community, revives his career as a “doctor for hire” to the rich and famous in the Hamptons. In addition to treating this select group of the East End elite, Hank also caters to the town’s less fortunate by donating his time at the local clinic. He finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others. The show also stars Paulo Costanzo (“Road Trip”), Reshma Shetty (“30 Rock”) and Jill Flint (“Gossip Girl”). ROYAL PAINS is executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski (“UC: Undercover”) and Michael Rauch (“Love Monkey”), as well as Rich Frank (“Comanche Moon”), Paul Frank (“Comanche Moon”) and Jeff Kwatinetz (“Big Momma’s House”) from Prospect Park. Christine Sacani (“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2”) and John P. Rogers (“Hide & Seek”) also serve as co-executive producers. ROYAL PAINS films entirely in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations around The Hamptons. Multiple Golden Globe and Emmy winning actor Henry Winkler continues to recur in his role as Eddie R. Lawson; plus Brooke D’Orsay returns as Paige Collins. Jim Gaffigan (“My Boys”), Julianne Nicholson (“Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), Gilles Marini (“Sex and the City”) and singer John Legend will also guest star this season.
ROYAL PAINS “Mulligan” Season Two Winter Premiere Review, Airing 1/20/2011
ROYAL PAINS follows up on their heart stopping summer finale of doom, where Eddie R. Lawson (Henry Winkler) went down and we don’t know if he will make it. Luckily, Dr. Hank (Mark Feuerstein) was by his side, so hopefully he helped him pull through. Of course, if Eddie makes it, he is going to have a lot of explaining to do. Boris (Campbell Scott) has already made it clear how much he hates his privacy being violated and what Eddie did, well you just don’t come back from that without some scars.
