ABC will air a six part series titled ‘Hopkins‘Â about the lives of the people who work at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. The show kicks off on June 26th at 10e/9c. Hospital dramas on TV are nothing new as fans of ER and Grey’s Anatomy can atest, but what should make this show interesting is that it is real.
I’m not a fan of the reality tv shows, but I think this show could be really good. The show is produced by ABC News, so Hopkins should feel more like an extended 20/20 segment than an episode of The Bachelorette.
It’s almost amazing that a show like this can be made in this era of very tight and strict confidentiality laws guarding patient records. Not to mention that a hospital would be willing to have camera crews documenting everything and opening themselves up to scrutiny. We may never see a show like this again.
What’s your thoughts on this show? Do you plan to watch?
