"Dr. Drew" Debuts on HLN March 28

Dr. Drew, the new HLN primetime program hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, will debut on the network on Monday, March 28, it was announced today by Scot Safon, executive vice president, HLN. Pinsky's nightly program will focus on the newsmakers at the center of the day's most-talked-about HLN news stories, focusing on the motivations and issues that drive the "extremely human" behaviors at the core of these events.

"We'll start with honest discussions and direct questions, and we'll hear from a wide range of people with diverse perspectives and experiences. We'll dig deep to discover what is really going on behind the headlines to get at the real experiences happening to the people involved," said Pinsky. "There will be resolution to the discussion, and what began as a distant headline will become relevant to the viewers. At the center of these stories are issues and behaviors worth examining closely, and worth talking about with depth, compassion and insight."

"There are events and news stories that strike a chord with all Americans, and what Dr. Drew does better than anyone is to focus on the human behaviors of those people in the middle of these events," said Safon. "This level of discussion and examination in this format does not currently exist on television. We're proud to give viewers a chance to see Dr. Drew each night."

Dr. Drew Pinsky is a practicing physician with a private practice and is on staff at Huntington Memorial Hospital. He is also Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Keck USC School of Medicine.

Dr. Drew remains the host of the radio show LOVELINE, which is nationally syndicated by Westwood One. Dr. Drew and Vh1 teamed up for the first reality TV series to depict the process of overcoming addiction. Now in its fourth season, CELEBRITY REHAB with DR. DREW was critically acclaimed by the addiction community for pulling back the veil of secrecy about what goes on in rehabilitation programs. SOBER HOUSE chronicles the sober living process. Dr. Drew is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Mirror Effect: How Celebrity Narcissism is Seducing America (Harper-Collins) and Cracked: Putting Broken Lives Together Again (Harper-Collins). Dr. Drew co-authored with Dr. Mark Young the first academic study on celebrities and narcissism. The study was published in the Journal of Research in Personality (Elsevier) and received worldwide press coverage.

After receiving his undergraduate degree from Amherst College and his M.D. from the University of Southern California, School of Medicine, Dr. Drew continued with USC for his residency. He then became chief resident at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. Dr. Drew is a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the California Medical Association and the American Society of Internal Medicine.
