I've been looking forward for this show which premiers tonight.
From the ABC website:
When a person's life is on the line and doctors insist that nothing more can be done, it's time to turn to the "Miracle Workers." Miracle Workers, a life-changing new series about real people overcoming insurmountable odds with the help of an elite team of medical professionals, will debut midseason on the ABC Television Network.
The series, from DreamWorks Television and Renegade 83 Entertainment, continues the network's tradition of developing reality programming that makes impossible dreams come true.
Each week, the show will feature two stories of ordinary people who do not have the network, access to the necessary medical community or in some cases the resources to these procedures. Their seemingly overwhelming medical problems will be taken in hand by a renowned team of medical specialists. The patients' lives will be transformed before viewers' eyes as the professionals employ cutting-edge medical technology to heal those who need it most. The team will not only restore the patients' health, but their hope in living a whole life again.
The series will show the patients' entire journey, from first consultation with their team of doctors, to the medical procedure itself, to the effect this life-changing event will have on them and their loved ones. State-of-the-art special effects will take viewers inside the patients' bodies, showing in detail the incredible medical transformation taking place.
The Miracle Workers team will include lead doctors Redmond Burke, a pioneering cardiac surgeon who performed New England's first heart lung transplant on a child; Billy Cohn, a cardiovascular surgeon who has been called the "Thomas Edison" of heart surgery for his impressive list of inventions that have changed surgery techniques; UCLA Medical Center nurse Janna Bullock and McLennan Community Recovery RN Tamara Houston.
Created by Renegade 83, Miracle Workers will be executive-produced by Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (co-heads of DreamWorks Television), and David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe from Renegade 83 Entertainment. Scott Jeffress (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and Trista and Ryan's Wedding) is co-executive producer.
