ABC News has announced plans for a new documentary series from producer Terry Wrong, TVNewser.com reports. The series, “NY Med,” will focus on medical issues, as did Wrong’s previous shows ”Boston Med,” in 2010, and 2008’s “Hopkins.”
The new eight-part series will be set in New York-Presbyterian Hospital and will include Dr. Mehmet Oz, best known from the syndicated "Dr. Oz Show."
“NY Med” will premiere Tuesday, July 10, at 10 p.m. ET, and will take viewers along with the surgeons and staff of the hospital as they treat patients. Dr. Oz is one of the cardiac surgeons the crew has been been following.
In a statement, Wrong said, “Medicine is a universal subject. At some point in our lives we or those we love will become patients for one reason or another. This series takes you behind the curtain to learn about those we depend on to fix us and how sometimes they just can’t.”
