This is Going to Hurt is based on Adam Kay's memoir of the same name. The series is created, written and executive produced by Kay, an author and TV writer known for Crims, Mrs. Brown's Boys and Mitchell and Webb.

Whishaw stars as Adam, a junior doctor in the OB-GYN ward who is finding his way through the ranks of hospital hierarchy.

"Adam is clinging to his personal life as he is increasingly overwhelmed by stresses at work: the 97-hour weeks, the life-and-death decisions, and all the while knowing the hospital parking meter is earning more than him," an official synopsis reads.

Ambika Mod, Michele Austin, Alex Jennings, Kadiff Kirwan, Ashley McGuire, Harriet Walter, Rory Fleck Byrne and Tom Durant-Pritchard also star.

This is Going to Hurt will premiere June 2 on AMC+ and Sundance Now, with new episodes to air weekly.

Whishaw is known for playing Q in the James Bond movies. He most recently appeared as the character in No Time to Die.
