The Honeymoon's Over
Episode 1.8 - July 30, 2009

Lee Tergesen plays Zach Kingsley, a illustrator of children's books, in an episode of this new summertime series on USA Network.

The show's main character is "concierge doctor" Hank Lawson, played by Mark Feuerstein.

In this episode, Hank becomes the personal physician to Lee's character, Zach, who has a heart condition. Zach and his wife are on a tight deadline to complete their latest in a series of wildly popular children's stories. This doesn't appear to be good for Zach's heart.

Hank revives Zach from increasingly serious heart and lung problems, and poor Lee has to look mighty unhealthy at times (foaming at the mouth and all). These moments are balanced by lots of shirtlessness. :)

The show's backstory: Hank was a rising star in the New York City medical community until he loses everything fighting for the life of a patient. With his career stalled and his personal life in shambles, Hank is in need of a new beginning. He gets it after he crashes a billionaire's party in the Hamptons at the urging of his younger brother, Evan (Paulo Costanzo). At the party, he saves the life of a guest, and soon Hank's services are in demand. He reinvents himself as the Hamptons' hottest new doctor, solving medical crises and helping those in need.

This episode also involved a mismatched pair of newlyweds honeymooning in the Hamptons: Alan (Peter Jacobson from "House") is the nebbishy husband of a swimsuit model, Rachel (played by Brooklyn Decker).
