Locals know the famed ER on the west side of downtown Baltimore simply as Shock Trauma. Starting this week, a new miniseries is set to go inside the University of Maryland unit’s walls.
Discovery Life is debuting the six-episode Shock Trauma: Edge of Life on Friday, just in time to sync up with New Years Day TV viewing. The series will look at “the fight to save lives when every second counts,” including a look at treatment after a car crash, gunshot wounds and frostbite. Judging by the news release announcing the show, expect Physician-in-Chief Thomas M. Scalea, who runs the center, to have a big role. Air Force medical staff also train at the center.
The show was produced by Susan Hadary, who runs the UM School of Maryland’s production arm, and has over 30 years of production experience. It will run on Fridays at 10 p.m. through the first week in February.
