Marshall (Interiors), John Saxon (Enter the Dragon) and David Hartman (Good Morning America) were the House M.D. of their day.

The Bold Ones: The New Doctors: The Complete Series

Available for the First Time on DVD
March 1st, 2016

Follow those who stand at the forefront of medicine in The Bold Ones: The New Doctors, the classic television drama starring E.G. Marshall, John Saxon, and David Hartman. The series chronicled the inner workings of the prestigious Craig Institute, where Dr. David Craig (Marshall) and his assistants Dr. Paul Hunter (Saxon) and Dr. Ted Stuart (Hartman) tackled the most challenging of cases. In stories which often reflected the societal concerns of the day as well as exploring the cutting edge of medical techniques, The New Doctors delivered on both an intellectual and emotional level throughout its entire run.

Available for the first time on DVD March 1st, 2016 from Shout! Factory, The Bold Ones: The New Doctors includes 43 original episodes plus a crossover episode with Ironside.

Co-created by television legend Stephen Bochco, The New Doctors was the only installment of The Bold Ones’ rotating wheel of series to last the franchise’s entire run from 1969 to 1973. Top-quality direction by such names as Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie, Lethal Weapon), John Badham (Saturday Night Fever, WarGames) and Jerry Lewis (The Nutty Professor) as well as thoughtful and topical writing elevated the series over many of its contemporaries, and cemented The Bold Ones’ reputation as one of the strongest examples of dramatic television of its time.
