[via press release from FOX]

CHI MCBRIDE SIGNS ON FOR FIVE EPISODES OF CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED SERIES "HOUSE"

Chi McBride ("Boston Public") will guest-star in five episodes of the critically-acclaimed FOX series HOUSE. McBride plays Edward Vogler, a wealthy businessman who donates $100 million to the Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital and becomes Chairman of the Board. He runs up against the prickly Dr. House who has even less tolerance for hospital officials than he has for his own patients. Vogler quickly decides that the unorthodox Dr. House and his entire team � the Department of Diagnostic Medicine � are a waste of money, time and hospital resources.

McBride has started production on the episodes which are scheduled to begin airing in March. HOUSE airs Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Chi McBride followed up a four-year run as Steven Harper in the FOX series "Boston Public" with many feature film roles. In 2004, McBride starred in two of the summer's biggest films, first in Steven Spielberg's "The Terminal," starring opposite Tom Hanks, followed by the action thriller, "I, ROBOT," opposite Will Smith. This year McBride will be seen in three new films including "Roll Bounce" with Bow Wow, Nick Cannon and Mike Epps, "Waiting" and the recently wrapped film "Annapolis," opposite James Franco and Tyrese.

HOUSE is a one-hour scripted medical drama about Dr. Greg House, a brilliant physician with a brutally honest demeanor whose unconventional thinking and flawless instincts make him a hero to his patients as he and his team of specialists save lives and solve the medical mysteries others can't.

In its most recent airing on Jan. 25, HOUSE posted a 5.0/12 among Adults 18-49 and 12.4 Mil Total Viewers. This marks the medical mystery's highest ratings to-date in all key measures. As a result, HOUSE won its hour in virtually all key demos, including Adults 18-49, Total Viewers, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54, and Men 18-49/18-34/25-54. HOUSE outperformed its nearest competitor (CBS' Amazing Race) by +6% among Adults 18-49 (5.0 vs. 4.7), +8% among Adults 18-34 (4.2 vs. 3.9) and +3% in Total Viewers (12.4 vs. 12.0 Mil). The show ranks in the top 20 among all dramas in prime among most male demos.

HOUSE is from Heel and Toe Films and Bad Hat Harry Productions in association with NBC Universal Television Studio. The series was created by David Shore and Shore, Paul Attanasio, Katie Jacobs and Bryan Singer are executive producers.
