Scrubbed out?

Star Braff to quit hospital sitcom

The future of American sitcom Scrubs is in doubt after star Zach Braff revealed he is quitting at the end of the current series.

The actor, who has played John 'JD' Dorian in the hospital comedy for the past five years, wants to concentrate on his movie career following the success of Garden State, which he wrote, directed and starred in.

He told Premiere magazine: "My guess is that this will be my last season. Whether or not they continue without me, I don't know.

'I have had this amazing run on the show and I love it and I'm so grateful, but I want to make movies full time.'

Scrubs is currently airing on digital channels E4 and ABC1 in the UK.
