Evan and Paige Are Headed Down the Aisle in "ROYAL PAINS" Two Hour Movie Event

"Off-Season Greetings" Premieres Sunday, December 16 at 9/8c

New York, September 19, 2012 -- USA celebrates a "Royal" holiday wedding - that is, the long planned nuptials of Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) - in a special ROYAL PAINS two-hour movie event "Off-Season Greetings," featuring revealing flashbacks, an unexpected snowstorm and a reunion of old friends. ROYAL PAINS stars Mark Feuerstein as Dr. Hank Lawson, the go to "doctor for hire" in the Hamptons, who finds that life in the exclusive community isn't always as perfect as it may seem. The ROYAL PAINS holiday special airs Sunday, December 16 at 9/8c.

For the first time in its four seasons, ROYAL PAINS takes a look at the Hamptons in the winter, several months after the events of the explosive summer finale. With the Hamptons decked out for the holidays, Dr. Hank Lawson (Feuerstein) continues to treat his patients in very unexpected ways, but Hank's biggest challenge will be facing his own medical issues.

In this special presentation of ROYAL PAINS, secrets from the past are revealed in a series of flashbacks in which fans learn the back-story of the Lawson brothers - Hank and Evan - prior to their move out east, before HankMed was ever conceived. When we first met Hank in season one, he had been fired from his job as an ER doctor, his fiancée had left him and he was alone and depressed before a weekend in the Hamptons changed his life. We'll meet Hank's first love (guest star Emma Caulfield) and learn how Hank's past romances and his relationship with Evan made him the man he is today. The episode will also mark the return of Jill Casey (Jill Flint), who left the Hamptons at the beginning of season four to follow her dream of working in a clinic in Africa. As the wedding approaches, Evan and Hank head to Las Vegas for some bachelor party fun, while Paige and Divya (Reshma Shetty) travel out of town for her bachelorette party. Through circumstances beyond their control, both parties end up in Las Vegas where surprises abound and someone takes a big gamble on the future. And with a snowstorm descending on the Hamptons, Paige rapidly finds her dream wedding turning into a nightmare.

ROYAL PAINS is written and executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski and Michael Rauch. Paul Frank and Rich Frank also serve as executive producer along with Jeff Kwatinetz from Prospect Park and Connie Burge. Carol Flint, Jon Sherman, Kerry Orent and Jack Bernstein co-executive produce. The series comes from Universal Cable Productions. ROYAL PAINS films entirely in New York (Long Island and Brooklyn) and at locations around the Hamptons plus Las Vegas for scenes in "Off-Season Greetings."
