Medicine Meets Television

If you enjoy medical dramas, then you’ve probably seen the popular series “ER.” There are a few things that you might not have realized about the show as you were watching it, such as County General is a fictitious hospital in Chicago. Nurse Hathaway wasn’t supposed to be a main character. She was supposed to die from her overdose in the pilot episode, but viewers enjoyed her character so much that producers decided to bring her back as one of the main people in the first half of the series. The show is at the top of the list for most Emmy nominations and awards. The pilot was filmed in a hospital that had recently closed because producers didn’t have enough money to complete a set. The medical accuracy of the show is maintained as much as possible. Michael Crichton was adamant about this feature of the series because he wanted viewers to understand life in the emergency room. ER featured 15 seasons, the third longest running series for NBC. CBS had its own medical drama soon after “ER” started. “Chicago Hope” didn’t really capture the attention of viewers and was canceled after only six seasons. The television series was supposed to be a theatrical screenplay but was rewritten to be a drama for television.
