Medical Story

mann abby producer maxwell

(NBC, 9/4/1975, 120 mins). Paralleling the successful format of its sister show “Police Story,” this pilot for the short-lived anthology series pits an idealistic intern against three established doctors over the question of whether a young actress should have a hysterectomy. Executive producer/writer Abby Mann was said to have based this story on the near-fatal experience of his wife, Harriet Karr, who plays the ailing actress.
