Eight-part series comes from 'Hopkins' producer
ABC will premiere “NY Med,” a new documentary series from ABC News, on July 10. The eight-part series is based on a year of filming inside the Columbia and Weill Cornell Medical Centers, major hubs of the New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. It will air at 10 p.m. ET. Terence Wrong, of previous ABC docu series “Boston Med” and “Hopkins,” exec produced.
“Medicine is a universal subject. At some point in our lives we or those we love will become patients for one reason or another,” said Wrong. “This series takes you behind the curtain to learn about those we depend on to fix us and how sometimes they just can’t.”
ABC “had unprecedented access to document the mayhem and the miracles that occur daily in these world-class facilities,” ABC News said, “following the irascible, compassionate and, at times, cocky attending surgeons who try to change the trajectory of lives by relying on sheer medical brilliance and a healthy dose of old fashioned good luck.”
Among the surgeons of “NY Med” is Dr. Mehmet Oz, who remains a world-class heart surgeon despite his successful parallel career as a talkshow host.
Erica Baumgart is the supervising producer and Monica DelaRosa is the series producer.
