Royal Pains fans may have been dismayed when Dr. Hank quit HankMed (again!) in the Season 5 finale to travel the world with Boris as his personal physician. However, star Mark Feuerstein couldn't have been happier about his character's decision — particularly since it meant traveling to Nice, Monte Carlo and Saint-Tropez to film the new season of the USA series, which premieres Tuesday at 9/8c.
"I have friends who followed the Grateful Dead in college and they were so grateful that this band had brought them to these parts of the country that they never would have been to.

Pills! Pregnancy! Politics! It's been a surprisingly intense season for the Hamptons' top concierge medical team on Royal Pains, and no one is more aware than the show's executive producers. "It was a very challenging prospect to deal with creatively and figuring out how to tell the story ... because we wanted to continue to show the chinks in the Hank armor and in a way that still protected the character and still protected the tone of the show," co-creator and executive producer Andrew Lenchewski tells TVGuide.com.
