Dr. Ken stars Jeong as a frustrated HMO doctor juggling medicine, marriage and parenting — and succeeding at none of them. Simses, repped by APA and Bleecker Street, will play Dr. Julie Mintz, a naive, ever-optimistic young resident at the HMO. Mintz’s romantic worldview and desire to play by the rules are often at odds with the more realistic opinions of her colleagues. Simses guest-starred in the role in the pilot.
Simses was a series regular on ABC’s Mixology and has done guest spots on such shows as Comedy Central’s Important Things With Demetri Martin and NBC’s 30 Rock and Law & Order: SVU. Her most recent film work includes roles in That Awkward Moment, What’s Your Number and the upcoming Sasha Gordon film It Had To Be You.
