‘Childrens Hospital’ Spinoff ‘Medical Police’ Gets Premiere Date at Netflix – Here’s Your First Look (Photos)

“They’re cops. And doctors. At the same time!”

Netflix has set the premiere date for its “Childrens Hospital” spinoff series “Medical Police,” a show about cops who are doctors — at the same time. Impressive, right?

The comedy — which comes from the creators of the cult Adult Swim series and is “building on the legacy of its predecessor” while tripling “as an action-packed thriller, a mystery-wrapped love story and, ultimately, a globetrotting comedy series” — will launch on the streaming service Jan. 10.

“‘Medical Police’ follows two American physicians (Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel) stationed at a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil who unwittingly discover a civilization-threatening virus,” according to Netflix’s official description. “They’re soon recruited as secret government agents and find themselves in a race against time to find a cure, all the while uncovering a dark conspiracy at the center of the outbreak.”

Along with Hayes and Huebel, the comedy stars fellow “Childrens Hospital” alums Rob Corddry, Malin Akerman, Ken Marino and Lake Bell, as well as Sarayu Blue. Jason Schwartzman and Fred Melamed will guest star.

Co-creators Corddry, Krister Johnson, Jonathan Stern and David Wain serve as executive producers and writers on “Medical Police.”

“Childrens Hospital” ran for seven seasons on Adult Swim from 2010 to 2016, after initially starting as a web series on TheWB.com. The black comedy centered on the staff of a hospital named after Dr. Arthur Childrens. It was a send-up of medical dramas like “St. Elsewhere,” “House,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “General Hospital” and “ER.” It starred Coddry (who wore clown make-up), Bell, Marino, Huebel, Hayes, Akerman, Megan Mullally and Henry Winkler.

The series ran for 89 episodes on Adult Swim.
