Critics' Choice Television Awards, Los Angeles, America - 31 May 2015

Freddie Highmore may no longer be playing Norman Bates on BATES MOTEL, but you’ll have a chance to see him next season on ABC in THE GOOD DOCTOR.

Based on a South Korean format, the drama “centers on a young surgeon with Savant syndrome who is recruited into the pediatric surgical unit of a prestigious hospital. The question will arise: Can a person who doesn’t have the ability to relate to people actually save their lives?”

Highmore is joined by Richard Schiff, Antonia Thomas, Nicholas Gonzalez, Hill Harper, Irene Keng, Beau Garrett and Chuku Modu.
