Indian-American actress, Sarayu Blue, has joined the brand new Netflix show ‘Medical Police.’ Premiered on January 10th, 2020, it is the spin–off of the short form alt-comedy series – ‘Children’s Hospital.‘ She is cast along with Rob Corddry, David Wain, Krister Johnson, and Jonathan Stern.
For those unfamiliar with ‘Children’s Hospital,’ think a spoof of ‘Blindspot,’ ‘CSI,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and medical dramas such as. It is exactly what the name suggests, doctors who are also cops.
‘Medical Police’ comes from the team behind ‘Children’s Hospital’ and follows two American physicians (Erinn Hayes and Rob Huebel) stationed at a pediatric hospital in São Paulo, Brazil who unwittingly discover a civilization-threatening virus. They’re soon recruited as secret government agents and find themselves in a race against time to find a cure, all the while uncovering a dark conspiracy at the center of the outbreak.
Sarayu Blue will star as Sloan McIntyre, a special agent who works for a covert division of the CDC and will be leading those two physicians across the globe.

While it has some inside jokes from ‘Children’s Hospital,’ Hayes says it’s not imperative to have watched that.
The show which spans 10 episodes feels dragged out. It could’ve been better delivered as a short film. It isn’t constant laugh out loud funny, but it has its moments.
If you enjoyed any of the ‘Scream Parodies’ or any part of ‘Children’s Hospital,’ you might wish for a second season.
“This is one of the first times I’ve gotten to be a part of the action and do some wicked fight scenes,” Blue told meaww.com. “It was an exciting turn for me. Rather than playing a doctor as I usually do, I got to play the badass agent!”
Sarayu Blue actress told the news site that “Sloane is the campiest possible version of the straight person role.”
“She takes herself far too seriously, which made the character supremely enjoyable to play. We all had so much fun on that set. I’d say the most challenging part was delivering a fact-ridden monologue about the covert division of the CDC and keeping a straight face while walking. Walking and talking is hard enough,” she was quoted as saying.
