While most (if not all) of the big medical dramas are on hiatus, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your doctor fix as ABC is set to premiere their new documentary series Boston Med
. Info and clips ahead!
In the description below, ABC describes the eight-hour series as “powerfully real” and the network states that it breaks new ground in the documentary landscape. Below is the full description and further down are a couple of sneak peeks.
“Boston Med picks up where the Peabody Award-winning “Hopkins” left off, going even deeper into the lives of caregivers and the cutting edge medical cases they confront inside the walls of America's top hospitals. In this original eight-hour series, the unforgettable stories of doctors, nurses and patients are adeptly woven to give each hour the pace and intensity of a drama.
Whether it’s the young resident in crisis doubting that she’s good enough to become a Harvard-trained doctor, or the deployed soldier's pregnant wife praying for a miracle surgery to save her baby, Boston Med is sure to touch your heart.
Filmed over four months at Massachusetts General, Brigham and Women’s, and Children's Hospital Boston, this powerfully real series breaks new ground in the documentary landscape. Meet the charismatic Hollywood producer before either he or the filmmakers realize that, through a twist of fate, his face will be transplanted onto a Vietnam veteran badly scarred in an accident. The second face transplant performed in this country and the first anywhere to be so extensively filmed, this operation involved two dozen surgeons and up to a hundred additional doctors and nurses. It’s a stunning example of both the high caliber medicine and the unprecedented and unique access captured by the filmmakers in “Boston Med.”
Boston Med premieres Thursday, June 24, 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET on ABC.
