Shore shocked fans of ABC’s “The Good Doctor” by killing off a major character in a fictional natural disaster in its third-season finale in March, then returned in the fall with a two-part season premiere set against the all-too-real backdrop of the pandemic. A onetime attorney, the Canadian native broke into television as a writer on the 1993 reboot of “The Untouchables” and went on to serve as writer-producer on such shows as “Law & Order” and “Family Law” before creating the long-running hit “House.” More recently, he created (with Vince Gilligan) the shows “Battle Creek,” which had a 13-episode run on CBS in 2015, and “Sneaky Pete” (with Bryan Cranston), which wrapped its third and final season on Prime Video in 2019.
