Monk (television)

Monk is a television show that debuted in 2002. It is produced by the USA Network, and is about an obsessive compulsive detective named Adrian Monk. Tony Shalhoub stars as Detective Monk, and serves as the show's executive producer.

Monk was originally a detective of the San Francisco Police Department. After the murder of his wife, a case which he could not solve, Monk became obsessive compulsive, refusing to leave his house for 3 years. Monk's personal nurse, Sharona Fleming, played by Bitty Schram, helped get Adrian back on his feet.

Eventually, Monk started his own private detective agency, helping the police solve difficult cases. Police captain Leland Stottlemeyer, played by Ted Levine, and and Lieutenant Randall Disher, played by Jason Gray-Stanford, are personal friends of Monk.
