Discovery Health’s ‘Dr. G’ Rolls on

Discovery Health Channel’s “Dr. G: Medical Examiner” is in production on a special set to air in conjunction with the release of a new book based on the series. Also, the cable network’s top-rated show has been renewed for a fourth season.

“How Not to Die—A Dr. G Special,” which airs Oct. 14 on the cable network, will feature host Dr. Jan Garavaglia as she counts down the top five killers in the U.S. and shares ways on how to avoid them. The first 150,000 copies of “Dr. G: Medical Examiner” will hit bookshelves that day.

“‘Dr. G’ continues to be a signature series for Atlas Media and Discovery Health,” said Bruce David Klein, president and executive producer of Atlas Media Corp., the show’s production company. “Viewers across the country will now also have the opportunity to read about her amazing insights on how to cheat death by avoiding the clutches of the five deadliest killers of Americans.”
