New TBS and TNT series pairs patients with medical experts
If a meeting between a patient and doctors on live television can have a successful result, Ann Curry wants to get it done.
The Emmy-winning news correspondent, former “Today” co-anchor and recent “We’ll Meet Again” host focuses on medical matters as an executive producer and the anchor of “Chasing the Cure,” which TBS and TNT both premiere Thursday, Aug. 8. The 90-minute episodes — to be shown live across the country — tackle real-life mysteries as people whose ailments have been unsolved, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed seek help from experts in real time, with social media and a dedicated website (ChasingTheCureLive.com) also as major components.
In an interview for this article, Curry discussed the series.
