"Royal Pains" centers on a successful New York E.R. doctor (played by Mark Feuerstein) who was dismissed from his job after a wealthy hospital benefactor died in his care. When he saves someone's life during a trip to The Hamptons, he accepts an offer to remain as a "concierge doctor" in the resort community. He usually attends wealthy clientele, but also others in need of care and often without the means to pay.
Andrew Lenchewski and John P. Rogers, both proud graduates of UCLA, created "Royal Pains". They also serve as executive producers and head writers of the show. The series first premiered on June 4, 2009 and was watched by 5.57 million viewers, the highest series premiere for the USA Network since "Psych" in 2006.

Various directors work throughout the season. In television shows composed of individual episodes, the television director's role differs from that of a film director in that he or she may work only on some television episodes as opposed to the director of an entire film production. In episodic television productions, the major creative control resides with a producer of the show. The television producer with creative control is called the showrunner.
Mark Feuerstein - Dr. Hank Lawson
Jill Flint - Jill Casey
Paulo Costanzo - Evan R. Lawson
