While promoting their new Scrubs recap podcast Fake Doctors, Real Friends on Buzzfeed's AM to DM morning show, Braff and Faison discussed how doctors, nurses and other medical workers often didn't get the heroic credit they deserve. "This is a new level of hero," said Faison. "For a long time we idolized superheroes that wore capes and big emblems on their chests. It’s been a long time since we’ve given the medical profession the kudos that they deserve, and it’s unfortunate that it’s taken this for us to recognize that." Faison added: "Just being a fake doctor, that was for me overwhelming, so I couldn’t imagine being on the front lines just now." The actors hope that the coronavirus crisis will give a new appreciation for those sacrificing their health and safety in the medical profession. "We did this drama/comedy for nine years and the whole idea was to show the lives of these people and how hard it is and the love and dedication they put into it," said Braff. "So now more than ever we celebrate them and their heroism."
