Stars Donald Faison and Zach Braff have announced a new iHeartRadio original podcast called Fake Doctors, Real Friends With Zach + Donald.

It will feature the actors as they look back on some of their favorite moments from the series. It will also include appearances by other cast and crew members, including creator Bill Lawrence.

Scrubs ran for nine seasons from 2001-2010.

“It’s almost like DVD commentary,” Zach told EW. “We’ll sit around and talk about funny stories and things we remember behind the scenes.”

“We started thinking of doing this for the people who did watch the show, fans of Zach Braff and I who are wondering what we’re doing and how we’re doing,” Donald Faison added. “This is a great place to check-in and hopefully enjoying conversations between two best friends.”

Due to the current health crisis, the duo has started doing the podcast from their homes via a video call.
