ROYAL PAINS episode entitled “Keeping The Faith” centers around the star of a popular film franchise (Big Show) who suddenly collapses, when Hank (Mark Feuerstein) soon discovers that his patient’s illness is caused by the very thing that made him famous. Meanwhile, Eddie (Henry Winkler) surprises Hank and Evan (Paulo Costanzo) with the news he's staying in the Hamptons.
ROYAL PAINS, the #1 new cable show last year, stars Mark Feuerstein as Hank Lawson who, after becoming blacklisted from the medical community, revives his career as a "doctor for hire" to the rich and famous in the Hampton’s. In addition to treating this select group of the East End elite, Hank also caters to the town’s less fortunate by donating his time at the local clinic. He finds himself walking the line between doing well for himself and doing good for others. The show also stars Paulo Costanzo (“Road Trip), Reshma Shetty (“30 Rock”) and Jill Flint (“Gossip Girl”). ROYAL PAINS films entirely in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations around The Hampton’s.
Multiple Golden Globe and Emmy winning actor Henry Winkler joins the cast this year in a recurring role as Eddie R. Lawson, Hank and Evan’s father. Campbell Scott ("Six Degrees") returns, as well as Tony-Award-winner Christine Ebersole ("Grey Gardens”). Anastasia Griffith (“Trauma”) and Tony Plana (“Ugly Betty”) will also guest this season.
