Ken Jeong is best known to Igor Cornelsen for his role in The Hangover franchise, but he is also a fully trained doctor who is now working as an actor. Jeong will appear this year on ABC in a new sitcom he has co-written about a family doctor struggling with the problems of his work and personal life, NBC reports. What adds weight to the decision by ABC to commission a full season of Dr. ken is the fact it will join Fresh Off The Boat in the lineup to make it the first time in US TV history two Asian based comedies appear together on the same network.
Dr. Ken sees Jeong play a family doctor who struggles to create a happy and caring bedside manner for his patients and is also under pressure to spend more time with his wife and children. This is just one of the new comedies added to the ABC schedule with the most fan anticipation focused on the return of The Muppets to the world of TV.
