Variety‘s “My Guilty Pleasure” asks stars and producers to share the TV show that they’re kind of embarrassed to admit they love — in other words, their guilty pleasure. To balance that out, we also ask them to reveal their “deep cut” — the show they love that isn’t well known; and their “show mate” — the series they couldn’t live without.
For episode 2 of “My Guilty Pleasure,” we invited “Medical Police” co-creator Rob Corddry and star Rob Huebel to reveal their picks.
“Medical Police,” now streaming on Netflix, is the successor to beloved medical drama parody “Childrens Hospital.” This time, it’s a medical cop spy drama set amid a potentially world-threatening virus. Here’s how they answered:
>> What’s your TV guilty pleasure?
Huebel: “My Lottery Dreamhome” on HGTV
Corddry: MTV from 1981 to 1985
>> What’s your TV deep cut?
Both: “Scare Tactics” on Syfy
>> What is your television “show mate”?
Huebel: “Deadwood” (HBO, 2004-2006)
Corddry: “Twin Peaks” (ABC, 1990-1991 and Showtime, 2017)
Huebel will next be seen on the HBO series “I Know This Much Is True,” along with Mark Ruffalo, based on the best-selling Wally Lamb novel. Corddry currently appears on CBS’ “The Unicorn” and will also be seen on the new version of “Top Gear America,” which will debut this summer on the MotorTrend app. He’s the host along with Dax Shepard and Jethro Bovingdon.
