disfigured: Royal Pains

When he is blamed for the death of a hospital trustee a young doctor is blacklisted by the medical community and dumped by his fiancée. Visiting the Hamptons with his brother he discovers a new career opportunity as a doctor for hire to the rich and famous – the ‘Royal Pains’ of the title. His first – accidental – patient in the pilot episode is Ms Newberg (Christine Ebersole) whose demands for priority attention to fix her ‘flat’ fall on deaf ears in the local ER department.

Francesca Buccellato was the makeup department head; Craig Lindberg was the special makeup effects artist.
