As of TB or Not TB - Season 2 Episode 4, a German production company, MORATIM, is credited in the Copyright notice instead of Universal Network Television. (MORATIM Produktions GmbH & Co. KG - of Pullach im Isartal, Germany) A deal with MORATIM Produktions, which is to receive 25 million Euros from a leasing company in Germany, means that they will produce television series for Universal. Overview The hour-long medical drama debuted in the fall of 2004 and stars Emmy-nominated British actor Hugh Laurie. Laurie plays Dr. Gregory House, a maverick medical genius who heads a team of young diagnosticians at the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. Despite his abrasive personality, the members of his team remain steadfast in their loyalty, going to extraordinary lengths to accomplish a common task: diagnosing and treating unusual ailments. As either a running joke or a coincidence, vasculitis is considered and soon dismissed as a cause at least once in almost every episode. Most episodes start outside the hospital, showing the events that will imminently lead to the onset of the week's patient's illness. A recurring subplot on the show is Dr. House's begrudging fulfillment of his mandatory clinic duty, confounding patients with an eccentric bedside manner and often unorthodox treatments, but impressing them with rapid and accurate diagnoses after seemingly not paying attention. Often some of the rather simple problems House faces in the clinic helps him solve the main case of the show. In one episode, House diagnosed an entire waiting room full of patients on his way out of the clinic.
