Two unscripted medical series starring the medical professionals of Boston will debut on ABC in July.
Save My Life: Boston Trauma will look inside the emergency and operating rooms of Boston Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in a six-part series. The one-hour show is a stress-inducing trip into the high-stakes work of the men and women who have Bostonians’ lives in their hands.
The series, which was rumored to be named The Golden Hour when it began filming last fall, premieres July 19 at 10 p.m.
Likewise, Boston EMS tags along with first responders in Boston Emergency Services as they rush to the aid of those in need. The one-hour, five-part series premieres July 25 at 9 p.m.
“Even for an experienced team like ours, we were stunned by some of the heart-pounding medical miracles we saw performed,’’ series executive producer Terence Wrong said in a statement. “With half a dozen famous hospitals, Boston is a city of medical excellence like no other.’’
Wrong, a veteran of behind-the-scenes medical documentary series, was also at the helm of ABC’s Boston Med, which filmed at several area hospitals in 2010.
According to a statement from MGH, the ABC team behind the series will have “undergone patient confidentiality training with the MGH Privacy Office before filming has begun to ensure the protection of privacy for patients and staff.’’
