Monk


Monk Cast

Series Description

Monk is a 60 minute crime drama series with a comedy twist on the USA Network about a former San Francisco police detective whose wife was murdered. As a result, he developed an extreme obsessive-compulsive disorder and several phobias which were the reason why he was put on psychiatric leave from the police department. He still, however, retained the abilities that made him a top detective. He has a photographic memory and an uncanny sense of how little, seemingly unrelated clues can be tied together to solve a crime. He hired a private nurse to help him function in public and, together with a friend, he works as a private detective and investigates crimes that the police haven't been able to solve.

Monk Trivia

    

Originally, the Monk TV show was to have aired on ABC with Michael Richards in the lead role. Richards decided not to do the series and, therefore, ABC decided to abandon the series. The USA network picked it up with Tony Shalhoub ("Stark Raving Mad" / "Wings") in the lead.

Monk was the first series that USA filmed in the United States. All of their previous shows had been filmed in Canada.

In many ways, the famed fictional Sherlock Holmes inspired several of the characters on Monk. Adrian Monk has an uncommon name as does Sherlock Holmes. Captain Stottlemeyer on Monk is a similar character to Inspector Lestrade. Sharona Fleming is a nurse versus Holmes' Dr. Watson. Monk has his brother Ambrose and Holmes had his brother Mycroft.

Monk's phobias are (from most to least serious): germs, needles, milk, death, snakes, mushrooms, heights, crowds, elevators.

Traylor Howard's first name is also her mother's maiden name. You may also have seen Traylor on her other TV series, "Bram and Alice" and "Boston Common".

Tony Shalhoub's family fled Lebanon due to religious persecution. Tony was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He is married to actress Brooke Adams ("O.K. Crackerby") who has appeared on episodes #13 and #45 of Monk! They met while performing together in the Broadway play, "The Heidi Chronicles". By the way, Brooke turned down a role as one of the original "Charlie's Angels"!
