“What a range. I play cops. Haven’t done too many doctors though,” Rodger Corser recently told TV Tonight.
But that’s all about to change with the ever-dependable Corser now set to star in Nine’s upcoming drama Doctor Doctor.
News Corp reported on the weekend he has the lead in the Essential Media drama, an $11.6m series that will generate 800 jobs filming in Sydney and Mudgee.
The synopsis for the series reads, “When he is knocked off his pedestal and on to the Impaired Registrants Program, prodigal Sydney surgeon and party boy Hugh Knight must return to his family home in rural Whyhope where he might learn to swallow his pride and mend his ways – or not.”
Corser is currently appearing in The Doctor Blake Mysteries, while Nine is yet to formally announce the new series.
