ABC’s embedded pilot episode of “The Good Doctor,” titled “The Good Lawyer,” from Sony Pictures Television and ABC Signature, will now air Monday, March 13 (previously scheduled for March 6), and stream the next day on Hulu.
In the episode, Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) seeks legal representation to help him win a case. He puts his faith in a promising, young lawyer who has obsessive compulsive disorder. The episode is written by co-showrunners David Shore and Liz Friedman, and directed by Ruben Fleischer.

A voice of reason, she is Joni’s biggest cheerleader, roommate and best friend.
