Sources described Dr. Odyssey as a medical show set on a cruise ship, with elements of House and Murphy’s 2000s FX drama Nip/Tuck. Jackson will be playing the doctor in the title.

Teale starred with Evin Ahmad in Who Is Erin Carter?, a Netflix limited series that had a brief breakout run in summer 2023. He’ll next be seen in Netflix’s feature film Mother of the Bride with Brooke Shields, Benjamin Bratt and Miranda Cosgrove. Teale’s other credits include Reign, Skins and Mr. Selfridge. He is repped by WME, Circle of Confusion and Waring McKenna.

ABC gave Dr. Odyssey a straight-to-series order in March, with the drama set to be part of the network’s 2024-25 lineup. The show, from 20th Television and Ryan Murphy, will be the first new broadcast series from Murphy’s company since 911: Lone Star premiered on Fox in January 2020.

Murphy, Baitz and Baken executive produce the series with director Paris Barclay, Jackson, Eric Paquette, Alexis Martin Woodall, Eric Kovtun, Scott Robertson and Nissa Diederich.
