“If this show and these doctors help me find what’s wrong, then what else is there?” That line comes from Charlie, a woman who recounts her multiple diagnoses in the first trailer for Chasing the Cure, a live series led by Ann Curry that debuts on TNT in the summer. Watch the clip, which was unveiled during WarnerMedia’s upfront today, above.
The two-hour weekly program is focused on the “effort to unleash the power of crowdsourcing” to help people who are suffering from undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or uncured medical mysteries. Each episode will spotlight patients battling puzzling ailments as they meet with a panel of top doctors who work to help solve their cases. They range from the surprising and odd to the most uplifting and joyful to cases that are a race against the clock under heartbreaking life-or-death circumstances.
Chasing the Cure also will feature a 24/7 global digital interactive experience in which viewers will be able to interact with the show across social media pages, a Facebook group and a dedicated website where users can submit their cases.
Kim Bondy serves as showrunner and executive producer of the 10-episode series from Lionsgate Television, B-17 Entertainment, and Motiv8 Media.
