The pioneering online series “Doctor Hoo” is taking America by storm, as it is released in the US and over 82 countries worldwide.  Lord Entertainment alongside MO Film will deliver this cult series to viewers around the world through the platforms iPhone/iTouch application, Google Android Market and Java handsets.

Millions of viewers will get the chance to watch the series which the UK’s prestigious Daily Telegraph claims “could provide a glimpse of how cult TV shows are developed in the future”.   With busy lives and careers, mobile applications are fast becoming the way of the future and with such easy accessibility “Dr Hoo” could be on lips of those in countries as diverse as Cambodia, Korea and New Zealand.

Dr Hoo was filmed in secret locations in Los Angeles, Canada and the UK with an all star cast.

Ian Hart, best known for US drama “Life” and “Dirt”, stars in the title role of Dr Hoo as an environmentally conscious, vegetarian Welshman with a multiple personality disorder whose real name is Mr David Raymond Hugh.

Believing the world is coming to an end, he enlists the help of his “sexy bombshell” assistant Zara, played by Elaine Cassidy (CBS’s “Harpers Island”). She is relying on Dr Hoo to help her “find herself” – but she appears to exist only in his head.

While Richard Burgi stepped away from his role as Karl Mayer in “Desperate Housewives” to play the shadow is this quirky and exciting series.

Stephen Lord (“Until Death”, “The Shepherd”,  new film with Ewan McGregor “Jackboots of Whitehall”) the producer and director who also appears in the drama as the mysterious Agent Smart, described the offbeat series as a character-driven show that “allows an audience to think and get what they want from the show – or not, which is liberating”.
