Someone better get himself a publicist, STAT! House is handing its burgeoning fan fave, Nurse Jeffrey (Patrick Price), a major promotion in the form of his Own. Freakin’. Spinoff.

But there’s a small twist.

The upcoming offshoot, titled Nurse Jeffrey, will be the crown jewel of a new House iPhone app that will make its debut later this month. Titled inHOUSE, the free app will update every Monday and feature exclusive interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and photos, a video blog with the drama’s writers, and a weekly giveaway in which fans can win one-of-a-kind swag.

Nurse Jeffrey will be added to the mix beginning May 24, with new “appisodes” debuting every Monday throughout the summer. The (literally) mini series — Fox’s attempt to bridge the three-month gap until House returns in September — will feature an “Upstairs, Downstairs” style of storytelling and explore the world of Princeton Plainsboro that exists beyond Dr. Crankypants and Co.

Thoughts? Is this the best thing to happen to House since the invention of Huddy? Sound off below!
