ABC NEWS ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF TV'S MOST ACCLAIMED REAL LIFE HOSPITAL SERIES FROM THE AWARD-WINNING PRODUCERS OF "HOPKINS," "BOSTON MED," AND "NY MED"

Eight-Part Series Offers a One-of-a-Kind Look at the World of Doctors and Nurses, Allows Viewers to See What Patients Do Not

Premieres Tuesday, June 24 at 10:00 PM/ET on ABC

Fans of ABC's popular real-life hospital series, with its signature unparalleled, can take heart. After nearly two years of production, "NY MED" is back as the producers broaden their lens to tell a riveting tale of high stakes medicine in two vastly different communities. This fast-paced, eight-part series mostly toggles between the orderly operating rooms of Manhattan's New York-Presbyterian Hospital - the primary venue for the series - where renowned surgeons perform feats of medical brilliance, and the sometimes hectic trauma wards of Newark's University Hospital where skilled doctors gallantly struggle to treat a flood of gunshot, stabbing and life-threatening trauma cases. The surgeons of "NY MED" never forget that there are limits to what medical science can do and that sometimes their best efforts come up short. "NY MED" premieres TUESDAY, JUNE 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"A medical crisis will bring most of us to the hospital at some point," said executive producer Terence Wrong. "Where we live can be destiny. 'NY MED' offers a stark contrast between the patient populations of Manhattan and Newark, which play out for viewers as this series unfolds."

Adrenaline-charged and poignant, this limited series - like its award-winning predecessors - is a deep dive into the volatile world of big city hospitals. Faithful viewers might remember the dynamic trio of nurses who deliver compassionate care and stern advice in equal measure. Debbie Yi, the ER resident who became a doctor after her sister fell in the subway and lost a leg, also returns to "NY MED." Each one of these returning characters faces a gamut of personal crises that impact their jobs and their lives.

The surgeons of "NY MED" don't believe in lost causes. A mother of three is sent home to die when a top hospital decides the tumor on her heart is inoperable. "Not so," says New York-Presbyterian's Len Girardi, a cardiac surgeon, who attempts the surgery others say, is impossible. Ashley Winter, his colleague at New York-Presbyterian, is a young female urologist who struggles to avoid becoming "emotionally invested" in the outcomes of her patients. And a third NYP surgeon, Jonathan Chen, treats a young Marine felled by a stroke at boot camp who subsequently discovers that the Marine's heart is severely enlarged.

Roosevelt Hospital neuroradiologist Alejandro Berenstein treats a 2-year old girl who will die if the dangerously swollen blood vessels in her brain burst. Her terrified dad, an officer in the Coast Guard, must put his faith in a novel procedure that involves injecting glue into the brain. In this same episode, filmed at Roosevelt and its sister hospital St. Luke's, ER resident Amy Caggiula goes toe-to-toe with the cops who surround the bed of a handcuffed patient arrested for disorderly conduct.

But Newark's University hospital takes the word "emergency" to another level. Doctors and nurses have seen close to 7,000 gunshot cases in the past decade. The staff says their ER is "off the hook." A student pilot arrives injured but alive after a plane crash killed his instructor. A bleeding man arrives in the ER after being hit in the head with a hammer. And a couple terrorized and separated during a violent home invasion come together in an emotional reunion in front of doctors.

At NYP, Dr. Mehmet Oz-who most Americans don't know as a surgeon-is in the OR again repairing damaged hearts and healing lives. In the first episode, Oz suddenly finds himself in a desperate fight to save a young actor's life after a chance encounter in the ER morphs into a full-blown medical crisis.

"NY MED" premieres TUESDAY, JUNE 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Terence Wrong is the executive producer of "NY MED." Erica Baumgart is the supervising producer and Monica DelaRosa is the senior series producer. Andy Genovese and Aysu Grodowski are series producers.
