The home of Dr. Pimple Popper is bringing television viewers another medical show with intense imagery. TLC has a new series about foot doctors set to arrive next year. To get the buzz around it started, the network has released a trailer. A warning due to the “graphic nature” of what is shown is issued beforehand. Viewer discretion is advised.

The series is entitled My Feet Are Killing Me. It chronicles Dr. Ebonie Vincent and Dr. Brad Schaeffer, both of whom are foot and ankle surgeons. The show follows them as they treat patients with incredibly severe foot issues. Dr. Vincent and Dr. Schaeffer will both warm your heart as they try to help suffering patients.

You should know that My Feet Are Killing Me wastes no time getting right into the cases after the viewer warning. Check out the trailer below:

Bless everyone in this trailer. My Feet Are Killing Me teased the dramatic and painful state of several patients’ feet. In the trailer, the doctors examine varying cases and ready to perform surgery that will better the people’s lives by addressing their heartbreaking foot issues. Dr. Ebonie Vincent and Dr. Brad Schaeffer are both shown encountering problems during the precarious procedures as the trailer continues.

The issues that their patients are facing are impacting their quality of life, with one patient saying that their foot could literally kill them! My Feet Are Killing Me’s trailer ends with the horrible potential that someone could have their toe die! The show’s title is clearly a play on something many of us have casually said.

However, for every patient featured in the trailer for My Feet Are Killing Me, the saying is quite real. TLC does not spoil any before and after shots to see how Dr. Ebonie Vincent and Dr. Brad Schaeffer’s procedures paid off. I suppose you will have to tune in when the show premieres in January to find that out. The wait will not last much longer.

My Feet Are Killing Me is not an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Fox’s third-season drama The Resident or NBC’s sophomore heartbreaker New Amsterdam. That said, the cases shown are every bit as intense as the ones many medical dramas often portray. Sadly, the issues in TLC’s new show are all-too-real.

My Feet Are Killing Me will give viewers the chance to see extreme cases, up-close and personal. TLC has television shows that do not relate to medical issues. There is the super-popular 90 Day Fiancé and the long-running Little People, Big World. The success of series like Dr. Pimple Popper have provided TLC with another angle of real-life to explore.

You can dive head-first into My Feet Are Killing Me when it premieres on Thursday, January 2, at 10 p.m. ET on TLC. It is one of this winter’s premieres.
