UPenn and Patrick Wilson and A Gifted Man and CBS and Zach Lutsky

For the last few years as a medical consultant on various shows Penn alum Zach Lutsky (C'96) has had the opportunity to write or re-write all the medical scenes in those shows.

After the jump find out how Zach has finally gone from a consultant to a full time writing staff member on "A Gifted Man"!

His first episode, "In Case of Blind Spots" airs tonight (Feb 3) at 8pm on CBS!





Zach tells me,
"It has been an unbelievable experience but I have been waiting eagerly for the first chance to write a script on my own.  On my last show, "Miami Medical," I got close.  The showrunner had me write a spec script.  I was thrilled when he read it and liked it and he promised me my own script in the second season.  The second season never came.  When I got hired on "A Gifted Man" I again was hoping for the chance to write.  The executive producer fought for me and this time I was promised one of the last scripts in the original order of episodes.  I waited nervously week after week, scared that we might get cancelled before getting to my episode.  Fortunately, the show and my episode made it.  I got to take time off from my hospital duties and spent nearly three weeks in New York shooting a script I had written.  It was amazing and surreal!  I am happy to say that I have now been officially made a member of the writing staff and can't wait until I get the chance to write again."
