Doctors' Private Lives is a 1978 American made-for-television drama film starring John Gavin, Donna Mills, Ed Nelson, Barbara Anderson and directed by Steven Stern. It was broadcast on ABC on March 20, 1978.
The Los Angeles Times called the film "lively but ludicrous and verges on self parody."
One year after the TV movie's network premiere, a four-episode miniseries was produced and directed by Edward M. Abroms, Richard Benedict and Marc Daniels. John Gavin, Ed Nelson and Randolph Powell reprised their respective roles from the 1978 TV movie. The miniseries focused on the personal and professional crises of two heart surgeons: Chief Surgeon Dr. Michael Wise and cardiovascular Unit Chief Dr. Jeffrey Latimer.
