Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper

Floriana Lima, 'The Mob Doctor'

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?
