Hollywood TV show producer Freddy Prune confessed to Drs. Sean McNamara and Christian Troy that he had stolen some of his script ideas from 'Chicago Hope'. And if he continued with the practice they would sue him.
O'Bviously in the TV world, some sort of TV series, perhaps more in the line of a reality show, was filmed at the famous hospital in Chicago after the actual series from the real world went off the air. Because Freddy couldn't be talking about the real 'Chicago Hope' series by David E. Kelley; otherwise, that would be a major Zonk between it and 'Nip/Tuck'.
