doing is fantastic. There is some reportage that the producers had to convince the doctors to participate rather than the doctors inventing a tv show for themselves.

The OB-GYN gal didn’t know she was pregnant when the series was conceived and cast. She couldn’t have. I didn’t see her story as heavy on female issues. It was more the transition from doctor to patient.

I think the male doctors had some work-life balance stuff in there, too. The wives saying that their husbands are never home, the phone calls Dr. Langer placed to his kids.
