House M.D. stars British actor Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House, an irascible and antisocial but highly skilled diagnostician who solves medical puzzles beyond the grasp of almost anyone. The series premiered on Fox Television Network in November 2004. Both the series and Laurie have been nominated for or won numerous awards, including the Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
