Back at the beginning of the year, I got a call for a last second shoot (Thanks for the forward, David!) at the Children's Hospital here in Aurora, and I showed up, not really knowing what the gig was all about. I knew it was a short interview scene, and I figured it had something to do with health or medicine, but come to find out after working with them again the following weekend that it was part of a new series that's going to be airing nationally on Fox Sports. I try to keep up on when all of the projects I work on get sent out into the world, but this one almost slipped by me. But here it is!
Cutting Edge MD
Each week, we will take you through a fascinating journey, and learn about the risks of common sports injuries.
Two athletes, leaders in their disciplines, will take us through their painful trauma & Injuries.
We’ll review the most recent research, treatments and rehabilitation methods, and get to know some very interesting athletes from the inside out. We’ll watch the athletes rebound and take back control of their lives.
It's an incredibly interesting concept, and the best part (or maybe the worst part for the squeamish) is that they actually show the surgeries. It might be seen as disgusting, but I figure it's sometimes good to get a reminder that we're all just flesh and bone. So if you can handle a little blood and some amazing human tales of pain and sacrifice, check out the show, which premieres next week. I'm not entirely sure which episode is which, so I don't know exactly which one I worked on, so feel free to check them all out. Here's the upcoming schedule for the Rocky Mountain region, with the premiere on Monday, March 10th.
Also, here's a teaser for the series, if you're still not sure it's for you...
