PaleyFest LA 2021 sponsored by Citi and Verizon. Stars and creatives of ABC's The Good Doctor (David Shore, Erin Gunn, Freddie Highmore, Hill Harper, Antonia Thomas, Paige Spara, and Fiona Gubelmann) gather with moderator Chancellor Agard at PaleyFest LA 2021 to celebrate their show. Topics include: Highmore's (Dr. Shaun Murphy) increased feeling of pride in playing a doctor after witnessing healthcare workers' self-sacrificing actions during the pandemic; why executive producers Shore and Gunn felt it was necessary to address the global pandemic, without making COVID-19 the show's focus; the inspiration for the exploration of racial bias in the hospital; Harper's (Dr. Marcus Andrews) unexpected response when observing four Black characters interacting on a "non-Black show"; the number of strong female characters that drive each episode's plots; and cast members' recollections of being directed by Highmore.
