DIAGNOSIS: DEAD OR ALIVE - Premieres Monday, June 25 at 10 PM ET/PT

This captivating new series explores the medical world's deepest mysteries through the voices of the patients who lived them, but that's not to say they lived through them. From the very first symptoms, to the frantic search for a diagnosis, viewers will be left guessing the outcome of the patient until the very end. Did the patient fully recover? Or is this story being told from beyond the grave? From Bonnie, an adoring mother with a slight tingle that travels from her foot to her right hand... then becomes completely paralyzed on the right side of her body within five days to Shannon, a college student with the flu whose fever spikes to 104 causing her to black out and her doctors discover an unheard of condition. These women and the other patients need a diagnosis for their unusual symptoms but the question is: will this diagnosis be dead or alive?

ER NIGHTS - Premieres Saturday, June 30 at 10 PM ET/PT

When the sun goes down, Saint Vincent's ER fills up. This world class hospital is just a stone's throw away from Sydney, Australia's pumping central business district and its entertainment underbelly, Kings Cross, making it one of the busiest hospitals in the world. The ER staff at Saint Vincent's never knows what will come through the emergency room doors next - from patients with multiple stab wounds, alcohol-fueled head traumas and drug overdoses to car crash casualties and everything in between. ER Nights gives an up-close look into the intense world of emergency medicine, where everything can change in a heartbeat and split second decisions can mean the difference between life and death.
