Netflix gave a serial order of 10 episodes to Medical police, featuring Children's Hospital alums Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel, from the former Children's Hospital executive producers Rob Corddry, Jonathan Stern and David Wain and assistant producer Krister Johnson, as well as Warner Horizon Scripted TV. Several others Children's Hospital aluniers, Bell Lake, Corddry, Ken Marino and Malin Akerman are ready for recurring roles.
Medical police, who was in the works for some time, including at the TBS at one point, is considered an offshoot of the Emmy Award-winning Corddry adult series Hospital for children. He had hinted in interviews that he was working on a derivative series.
Written by Corddry, Johnson, Stern and Wain and directed by Wain and Bill Benz, Medical Police is described as an action-packed thriller, a mystery and a love story. It focuses on two American doctors (Hayes and Huebel) working in a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, who discovered a virus threatening civilization. The duo is recruited as a government agent in a race against the clock and around the world to find a cure and discover a dark conspiracy.
Hayes and Huebel played the seven seasons of Children's Hospital. The show was nominated for eight Primetime Emmys during its course, winning four awards, including outstanding comedy or drama series and an actor for Corddry.
At Netflix, Wain directed and co-wrote Wet Hot American Summer: First day of the camp, a prequel to his 2001 film. He also produced in collaboration with Stern, with Johnson's co-executive production.
