Medical Center (medical drama)

     (CBS Primetime, 1969 - 1976)

     [although medical dramas had been a staple of radio and TV
      from their earliest days, this series began a trend toward
      showing physicians more in the context of their professional
      lives with an ensemble cast; rather than focusing on one hero
      like "Doctor Kildaire", "Ben Casey", "Marcus Welby", et al;

      The cast included TV veterans James Daly and Jayne Meadows
      along with newcomer Chad Everett]
