The cast and creative team of Monk talk about the "Monk universe," quirks of the actors, and the origins of the idea for a cop with OCD. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Monk, a comedic series about Sherlockian and obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk. Barbara Dixon (director, The Paley Center for Media, Los Angeles) welcomes the audience and moderates the following panelists: creator/executive producer Andy Breckman, executive producer David Hoberman, and cast members Tony Shalhoub (Adrian Monk), Stanley Kamel (Dr. Kroger), Jason Gray-Stanford (Lt. Randy Disher), Ted Levine (Capt. Leland Stottlemeyer), and Bitty Schram (Sharona Fleming). Comedian Norm MacDonald makes a surprise voice appearance. The panel discusses the genesis of the idea for a cop with OCD, how each cast member was chosen, the differences between the "Monk universe" and the real world, the rapport between the writers and the actors, each actor's foibles, and how the show walks the line between comedy and drama.
