Fox first look: ‘The Mob Doctor’

Set for 9 p.m. Mondays this fall, “The Mob Doctor,” from exec producers Josh Berman and Robert Wright, has an arresting preview trailer featuring Jordana Spiro (“My Boys”), William Forsythe (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Michael Rapaport (“Boston Public”) and Zach Gilford (“Friday Night Lights”).

When it comes to serialized dramas, I hate when people ask after a promising pilot how the premise will be sustained over a number of episodes. Simply stated, I like to think that the producers have asked the same question — if they’ve hook me at the start, I don’t want to assume they’re then going to let me go. Consequently, I’m going to resist the temptation of wondering how many times a doctor indebted to the mob can be called on that debt. Spiro is already more interesting in these few minutes than her “My Boys” character ever was, so that’s a start.
