MDs premiered on ABC on September 25, 2002. "Medicine could be a lucrative business if it weren't for all those sick people." So goes the motto of the mega-sized, mega-frugal HMO that runs Mission General Hospital in San Francisco, where two renegade doctors bend the rules and find the loopholes in a constant quest to treat their patients. Together, they practice medicine with a take-no-prisoners attitude and don't-take-no-for- an-answer tactics. Not since M*A*S*H has the real drama of life and death situations mixed with sharp wit and unique characters for such outrageous and unforgettable results. It's a strong prescription for conflict and comedy in this provocative new ensemble series.
