June 11, 2014, Baltimore, MD – RLTV ‘Experience Matters’ the only cable network and online destination for Generation 50+, will present what could be a first for television - an endoscopic procedure.
After nearly a year of planning, this landmark half-hour episode of Seeking Solutions with Suzanne premieres June 17, 2014 at 8:30 AM ET. Emmy Awardwinning creator and host Suzanne Roberts shares her personal experience as she undergoes the exploratory medical procedure and shares with viewers information that may save their lives.
“Although people generally are uncomfortable discussing invasive procedures, we believe this special will facilitate a dialogue between our viewers and their doctors,” said RLTV Chief Content Officer Elliot Jacobson. “The special episode of Seeking Solutions with Suzanne marks another in RLTV’s explorations of vitally important and relevant health and wellness concerns. Previous RLTV specials and series include To Not Fade Away and Taking Care with Joan Lunden about Alzheimer’s and caregiving, respectively.”
Jacobson also noted that this special episode includes Suzanne’s visit with “America’s Doctor,” Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show, who discusses how Eastern and Western medical practices can complement each other. Viewers will also learn how to find their voice and become better advocates for their health in a segment entitled “When Your Doctors Won’t Listen.”
Roberts plans to produce other “medical reality” TV specials in which she’ll undergo on camera any other procedures deemed necessary for her in an effort to share her experiences with viewers so they know what to expect if they have to undergo these same procedures.
The only cable network and online destination created specifically for adults 50+, RLTV (www.rl.tv) offers unique, inspiring programming that focuses on topics that matter to Generation 50+, from relationships, reinvention, rediscovering passions and retirement, to finances, health, and current events.
