FOX has three new scripted dramas making their land for the 2024-2025 television but one has been held for the midseason. That's the medical drama Doc. The series has big shoes to fill since it's slotting onto a roster that once boasted The Resident. But, given the premise of the program, we're sure viewers will be hooked by its compelling and heart wrenching story.

Doc is based on the Italian drama Doc -- Nelle tue mani and follows Dr. Amy Larsen in the wake of a brain injury that upends her world. Before the car accident, she'd been the Chief of Internal and Family Medicine at Westside Hospital, a take charge woman with little patience but a brilliant mind. Amy had suffered the tragedy of losing her son and in the process of grieving, she walked away from her marriage to her soulmate and hardened herself to keep moving forward.

But the injury has caused amnesia. When she wakes up, she's lost eight years of her memories. She reels as she learns what happened, is introduced to her now teenaged daughter, finds out that the love of her life is now her ex-husband, and she's romantically involved with a completely different person. Unfortunately, she must also contend with the loss of her son all over again. Now forced by circumstances to navigate a life she doesn't remember creating, Amy only has her daughter and a handful of devoted friends to help her as she works to continue to practice medicine despite having lost almost a decade of hard-earned knowledge and experience.

Here's what else you need to know about the show!

Doc premieres on FOX in 2025

As mentioned above, we're in for a wait. Doc won't make its debut on FOX until the midseason. Neither a release date nor a release window has been shared. Typically midseason programs debut between January and March, and this series is slated for a winter release so it'll likely premiere in January or February. We'll update this section once more information is announced.

Filming is underway

According to Hollywood North Buzz, filming began on the series in Toronto back in Feb. 28. Season 1 is set to wrap on June 28. The cast and crew are utilizing a soundstage in Oakville. Per the Oakville News, the production has been filming around the area and in Halton including Ce Soir bistro. Once the series hits the small screen, fans of Good Sam may recognize Doc's setting as the two medical dramas share the same backdrop. For this series, however, Toronto is serving as a stand-in for Minneapolis.

Dr. Michael Hamda is Westside Hospital's Chief Medical Officer (CMO).

His daughter is the center of his world.

Third year resident Dr. Sonya Maitra is assigned to help take care of Amy after her accident which is initially a problem because she can't stand the Chief of Internal and Family Medicine.

Outside of work, Sonya has a close-knit family but she doesn't have a love to go home to unlike her loved ones who are all married including her parents who have 30 years of wedded bliss to celebrate. Time is ticking, if she wants to have kids biologically, and Sonya still hasn't found her own Mr. Right.

Doc is based on a true story

As the promo notes, Doc is inspired by real life events. This is due to the medical drama being an adaptation of Italian series Doc -- Nelle tue mani which is based on what happened to Dr. Pierdante Piccioni. According to Rai News, Piccioni lost 12 years of his life after injuries he sustained during a car accident led to a lesion to the cerebral cortex.

When he woke up from his coma, he learned he lost over a decade of memories. His children were adults and he wasn't a provincial doctor like he thought, he was a head doctor. Everything from the life he knew before was different, had changed, and so he had to go through the slow, heartbreaking process of piecing his life back together even though he would never regain the years he lost. Piccioni, however, did return to medicine.
