> Description 
Monk is a television show about an obsessive-compulsive detective named Adrian Monk (played by actor Tony Shalhoub). Adrian Monk was originally a detective of the San Francisco Police Department. Due to an unusual upbringing, Monk grew up with a variety of quirks and tics. After the murder of his wife, Trudy, and his inability to solve it, Monk suffered a nervous breakdown, and his eccentricities manifested themselves as obsessive compulsive disorder, which cost him his job.

He refused to leave his house for three years. After his three years in seclusion, Monk began consulting work for the department, helping the police solve difficult cases. Police Captain Leland Stottlemeyer and Lieutenant Randy Disher call on, and spar with, Monk when they have a case they can't crack. Stottlemeyer is often infuriated with Monk's disorder, but respects his observational abilities. Monk continues to search for information about his wife's death as he works on other cases.

Monk's personal nurse, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram), helped get him back on his feet. Occasionally, Sharona's son Benjy helps Monk with cases, albeit unintentionally. Bitty Schram left the show during third season due to "creative differences". Traylor Howard plays Monk's new assistant, Natalie Teeger. Natalie's daughter is Julie.
