Live medical diagnosis series M.D. Live ordered at TNT
TNT has ordered M.D. Live from Lionsgate TV to series, a show where patients get their ailments diagnosed by a panel of doctors and an enthusiastic audience, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The show has received a 10 episode commitment and will be a two-hour weekly event welcoming patients battling undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or uncured illnesses. TNT explained that the series will feature “a recurring panel of highly accredited doctors [who] will discuss potential diagnoses before throwing live to the crowd for additional feedback, solutions, and support.”
“We want this show to inspire action and give hope to real people struggling with medical problems to get answers, proper treatment, and ultimately, improve their quality of life,” said Michael Bloom, TNT’s SVP of unscripted and live programming. “Our professional team of studio and field crews will lead our charge crowdsourcing hope to help our patients solve the medical mysteries we present in this series.”
“M.D. Live will tap into the cultural zeitgeist of crowdsourced care to create a relevant, current and provocative series. The interactive elements allowing viewers to engage with some of the world’s top medical professionals take this show beyond observation to inspire action,” added Jennifer O’Connell, Lionsgate EVP and head of worldwide alternative programming.
