The title character in "The Mob Doctor" (Jordana Spiro) is keeping the "mob" part of her life a secret from everyone she works with. Which is understandable -- but when it eventually does come out, it feels like her co-worker and confidante, nurse Roberta "Ro" Angeli (Lima), will take it in stride. Lima, who has made a bunch of guest appearances ranging from "How I Met Your Mother" to "In Plain Sight," is one of the brighter parts of the pilot for the new FOX show (which premieres Monday, Sept. 17 at 9 p.m. ET). She takes what could be just a typical sassy best-friend role and gives Ro both a sharp wit and a bit of world-weariness that helps ground the show. How is this her first series-regular role?
