Life in the fast-paced, high-pressure world of medicine can take its toll
on even the most qualified physicians. Nearly eight years after the critically
acclaimed series, "Hopkins 24/7", Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Hospital once
again sets the stage for an intimate look into the lives of those who choose
to wear the white coats. Created from nearly 1500 hours of raw footage,
"Hopkins" captures astounding scenes of medical crisis, with young doctors
forced to make life and death decisions on the fly, perform complicated
procedures and tend to patients and their families, all the while trying to
maintain balance in their own lives.
There are no narrators in "Hopkins"; the voices belong to the patients
and their caregivers. Viewers will be bedside as doctors pose the difficult
question to the family of a nearly drowned little girl, with minimal brain
function, about whether or not to disconnect life support. They'll experience
tension as a young surgical resident punctures a woman's lung during a routine
procedure, and will also learn about the unlikely journey of an illegal
migrant worker picking tomatoes in California who rises to become one of the
nation's top brain surgeons.
Terence Wrong is producer and executive producer. Brad Hebert and Alex
Piper are supervising producers. Rudy Bednar is senior executive producer.
Watch the heart-pounding, real life medical drama "Hopkins", premiering
