Televisionation: TV Writer/Producer and Pediatrician, Neal Baer

ITVT/TVOT is pleased to present another episode of “Televisionation,” our new video/audio podcast exploring the advanced/interactive-TV industry in the Coronavirus/Covid-19 Era.

This episode features Neal Baer, a prominent pediatrician and television writer/producer, known both for his work in medicine and on such shows as “ER,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and “Designated Survivor.”
Among other things, he discusses his television work, which includes an uncannily prescient “Designated Survivor” storyline about a pandemic, as well as a new project, “The Edit,” which explores CRISPR technology; talks about the difficulty of producing shows during social distancing and describes some innovative ways that the industry has found to address that difficulty; and explains how his work in television reflects his interests and passions in medicine.
(Note: If you would like to share your thoughts on how the Coronavirus/Covid-19 crisis will change the TV and advertising industries, and tell us what your company—or you yourself—are doing to prepare for this new reality, please contact us at
