Plot Synopsis

Executive produced and hosted by award-winning journalist and humanitarian Ann Curry, CHASING THE CURE is a weekly, 90-minute series that helps patients who are suffering from undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or uncured medical mysteries by breaking down barriers and expanding ways for patients with rare conditions to get the information and help they need. Because it combines a television broadcast and a 24/7 global digital platform, this enterprise harnesses the full power of both television and a multi-platform experience in order to break down medical barriers in service of patients. Additionally, this initiative fosters and empower people across the globe on all screens to become medical detectives. Through a 24/7 digital experience and interactive components including live, second-screen experiences, suggestions, along with highly accredited doctors, are able to share their experiences, advice and recommendations on what's happening during the broadcast in real time -- all toward helping find cures for people with mysterious conditions. Additionally, CHASING THE CURE cultivates an online community for everyone to dive deeper into each case, not only empowering every one of us to become medical detectives, but also creating a space for people to provide support to people dealing with undiagnosed conditions. Everyone has the unique opportunity to submit their own cases via an in-take process to be cared for by an around-the-clock engaged community and considered for the live broadcast.

"How could I not want to be part of this project, given the real chance that it will help people suffer less? This collaboration of physicians, journalists and television creators is not only groundbreaking, it could potentially help encourage new ways for people to access care," says Curry.

Beginning August 8, 2019, CHASING THE CURE premieres weekly on Thursdays at 9pm ET/6pm PT on TNT, with a simulcast on TBS.
