Preview Clip of Mental on Fox Starring Chris Vance

First Look: Mental

A troubled, roguish doctor takes on tough cases with unconventional methods and a heavy dose of sexual tension with his female colleagues — sounds like a Fox medical show, all right. But I'm not talking about House. I'm talking about Mental, a new Summer series that premieres May 26.

The show stars Chris Vance as Dr. Jack Gallagher, a psychiatrist who takes over the mental health services at a major Los Angeles hospital. Gallagher is unorthodox and has a spotty past himself, but he uses that understanding to connect to patients — whom, he believes, have a lot more in common with their doctors than the doctors typically choose to admit.

Of course — not unlike the situation on Fox's more famous medical show — Gallagher often finds himself running up against a female administrator (in this case it's Nora Skoff, played by Annabella Sciorra) with whom he shares a sexual chemistry and a mysterious past. Among the others on the team are a cocky first-year resident, an opinionated doctor who believes a residency in psychiatry is beneath her, and a nurse who pulled himself out of poverty to pursue his medical career.

It doesn't necessarily look or sound like anything new or different — but it just might fill a void if you're really missing House in the next couple of weeks. To check out a promo and a clip from the first episode, just
