The original series gain the attention of actor Daniel Dae Kim, who purchased the rights for his production process. He started developing the show and ultimately sold it to CBS, his home channel in 2015. CBS decided not to make a pilot. Kim acquired back the rights of that series from CBS because he was very passionate about it. Sony Pictures Television and Kim finally reached to an agreement, and David Shore, the creator of Fox’s medical drama House, was hired to produce this series.

Having Daniel Dae Kim as the producer, CBS Television Studios had started to develop on an American presentation of the famous and hit South Korean medical and hospital drama Good Doctor on May 2014. “Something that can fit into a familiar world, with a breadth of characters that can be explored in the long term,” Kim said of adapting the series.

The narration of an autistic pediatric surgeon was condemned to be debuted in August 2015 and was set to be in Boston. However, when CBS passed on the concept, that was picked up by Sony Pictures Television, with an ABC pilot commitment in October 2016. David Shore is the show’s creator and executive producer, alongside Kim, Sebastian Lee, and David Kim. ABC has issued a formal order such that the pilot of the series would air in January 2017.

Antonia Thomas was cast as Dr. Claire Browne, a strong-willed and competent doctor who has a unique connection with Shaun, on February 17, 2017.  A week later, Freddie Highmore was cast in the lead role as autistic surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy, (Freddie Highmore) while Nicholas Gonzalez was cast as Dr. Neil Melendez, the hospital’s surgical resident’s employer.

Chuku Modu was cast as resident Dr. Jared Kalu, Hill Harper as head of surgery Dr. Marcus Andrews (originally Dr. Horace Andrews), Irene Keng as resident Dr. Elle McLean, and Richard Schiff as hospital president and Shaun’s mentor, Dr. Aaron Glassman (originally Dr. Ira Glassman). Schiff was quickly followed by Beau Garrett, who played Jessica Preston, a hospital board member and acquaintance of Dr. Glassman. Tamlyn Tomita was promoted to the main cast as Allegra Aoki in September 2017.

The first season has a 63 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 43 reviews, with an average rating of 5.67 of 10. “The Good Doctor’s heavy responsibility bedside approach ruins a great lead performance, but there’s still lots of room to improvement under all the emotionally deceptive gimmickry,” says the website’s consensus. It has a weighted average score of 53 out of 100 on Metacritic, signifying “mixed or mediocre reviews” based on 15 critics.

Hulu purchased the SVOD rights to new and previous episodes of the series in May 2018, with future episodes becoming accessible the day after their initial ABC broadcast.
