"Scrubs" ran on NBC for seven years before airing on ABC for its final two seasons. The Emmy Award-winning medical comedy-drama, which followed employees at the teaching hospital Sacred Heart, starred Zach Braff (Bullets Over Broadway, Trust), John C. McGinley (Glengarry Glen Ross, Requiem for a Heavyweight), Ken Jenkins (Big River, "I Am Sam") and Sarah Chalke ("How I Met Your Mother," "Rick and Morty").
Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly that he is currently deciding on the sound of the show, saying, "We're looking at everything from the singer-songwriter hip version that you can say they did with Spring Awakening to the type of sardonic Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson-type stuff."
The sixth season of "Scrubs" included a musical episode featuring Tony Award nominee Stephanie D'Abruzzo (Avenue Q) as a woman who hears everyone's speech as singing. "My Musical" was written by Debra Fordham, featuring music by Fordham, "Scrubs" resident composer Jan Stevens, The Worthless Peons' Paul Perry, Tony Award-winning Broadway orchestrator Doug Besterman (The Producers, Fosse) and the Avenue Q writing team of Tony Award winners Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, "Frozen"). Directed by Will Mackenzie, the episode was nominated for five Emmy awards.
