Doctor Richter is a Russian television medical drama that was[needs update] aired on the Russia-1 network from 2017.[2] The series' main character is Dr. Andrei Richter (Alexey Serebryakov), a pain medication-dependent, unconventional, misanthropic medical genius who leads a team of diagnosticians at the 100th Clinic Hospital in Moscow.[3] The series serves as a direct and authorised remake[4] of House for Russian television, after VGTRK purchased the broadcast rights from NBCUniversal.[5][6][1]

Also, in 2010, a Russian TV series titled Doctor Tyrsa, which was loosely modelled on House, was aired on Channel One Russia, but lasted only one season.


The production began in April 2016.

Actor Alexey Serebryakov was cast as the lead role in the series. Shooting began in April, while the first season was released in late 2017.

On a project commissioned by the media holding VGTRK and channel “Russia-1” works produced by Alexander Rodnyansky from “Non-stop production”.

The general director of Russia 1, Anton Zlatopolsky, said that a remake of such a popular series is a serious challenge for the channel. “As a rule, neither the professionalism of the producers, nor famous actors, nor invested funds guarantee absolute success when it comes to local remakes. There is always a couple of secret components that make the show outstanding, and we know how to make them work,” said Zlatopolsky.[7]
