The popular South Korean TV series "Good Doctor" will be remade in the United States, the local subsidiary of its producer said Saturday.
According to KBS America, the KBS series will be remade by US broadcaster ABC for a pilot run with David Shore of the hit American series "House" writing the script. Sony Pictures Television will be in charge of production, it said.
The Korean series, which aired in 2013, depicted the lives of pediatric surgeons and the romance between an autistic savant (Joo Won) and his senior coworker (Moon Chae-won).
The US version will also feature a young surgeon with the same condition who is hired by the pediatric department of the country's top hospital.
