DISCOVERY FIT AND HEALTH, THE REIGNING AUTHORITY FOR MEDICAL-MYSTERY PROGRAMMING, LAUNCHES THE GROUNDBREAKING SERIES "MEDICAL DETECTIVES"

-- MEDICAL DETECTIVES will premiere June 21 at 10 and 10:30 PM on Discovery Fit & Health -

(Silver Spring, MD) - There's Hollywood and Vine and there's science and crime - and MEDICAL DETECTIVES is at the intersection of both. In an exclusive deal, Discovery Communications' Discovery Fit & Health will bring the most important series ever to focus on medical forensics and crime resolution to televisions this summer. With MEDICAL DETECTIVES, Discovery Fit & Health now has access to files of those engaged in the greatest breakthroughs in the application of science and medicine, as well as insight into the notable diseases that were solved through scientific investigation methods. MEDICAL DETECTIVES is the real CSI, and viewers can see where it all began with a special stack of season 1 episodes airing from 8-10 PM on Saturday, June 21. The stunt welcomes MEDICAL DETECTIVES to its recurring timeslot of Saturdays at 10 and 10:30 PM on Discovery Fit & Health.

"MEDICAL DETECTIVES started it all - it inspired such popular series as CSI, Criminal Minds and every other modern crime series on TV, today," said Henry Schleiff, Group President Investigation Discovery, Discovery Fit & Health, Destination America and American Heroes Channel. "Indeed, as the one and ONLY show that started the forensic genre with its blend of brilliant medicine and devious crime, MEDICAL DETECTIVES truly belongs on the one and ONLY network devoted to medical-mystery programming - Discovery Fit & Health," said Henry Schleiff, Group President,

"When I was intently watching the O.J. Simpson trial along with the rest of America, I recognized the significance of scientific evidence in murder trials. That, right there, was the inspiration for the series 20 years ago - and the importance of the series hasn't changed since," said Paul Dowling, creator and executive producer of MEDICAL DETECTIVES.

MEDICAL DETECTIVES is created and produced by Paul Dowling with Medstar Television and distributed by Gary Lico with LILOLME. For Discovery Fit & Health, Jane Latman is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President, Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel and Discovery Fit & Health.
