Production begins on new documentary

Principal photography is underway on a new documentary to be produced and directed by Renée McKay and Joani Livingston. The documentary will address the critical shortage of primary care physicians nationwide and its alarming effect on the health care system. If things don't change soon, the prognosis does not look good.

By taking a close up look of those serving on the front lines of health care in Georgia, viewers will get a clear picture of what's happening around the nation. The documentary will chronicle the lives of family practice doctors in rural Georgia, as well as a medical student in her last year of school before her residency.

Two full crews began shooting interviews and footage at Mercer University's School of Medicine in Macon, Georgia today. Locations for other shoots around the state include Albany, Calhoun, Newton, Roberta, Sandersville, Wrightsville, and Atlanta.

The high definition documentary is being written by SJ Murray and intended for broadcast on Georgia Public Broadcasting before distribution to PBS stations nationwide. An air date has not yet been announced.
