Daniel Dae Kim, a star of CBS’s “Hawaii Five-0,” is adapting a drama from South Korea for CBS, reports Deadline.com.
Kim, who was born in South Korea, is working on a U.S. version of “Good Doctor,” about a brilliant physician with Aspergers who uses his abilities to solve complicated medical cases at a hospital in Boston.
The project is one of a number of high-profile medical dramas in development at the broadcast networks, including an untitled CBS project from Jason Katims, and Fox’s “The Cure,” from New Yorker writer Malcolm Gladwell.
Adele Lim is writing the project and will executive produce with Kim, the story notes. Lim also recently served as co-showrunner on CW’s “Star-Crossed.”
