Streaming giant Netflix has commissioned a docuseries inspired by The New York Times Magazine’s long-running column ‘Diagnosis,’ written by Dr. Lisa Sanders.

Tentatively titled Diagnosis, the eight-part series documents the lives of patients dealing with mysterious illnesses as they attempt to find a diagnosis and potentially, a cure.

All cases will be curated by Sanders, with each medical mystery tackled by combining the power of global crowdsourcing, social media platforms and established medical expertise.

The series is produced by Scott Rudin Productions, The New York Times and Simon and Jonathan Chinn‘s Lightbox Entertainment. A launch date has yet to be determined.

Executive producers on the series include Scott Rudin Productions’ Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush; Lightbox’s Jonathan Chinn, Simon Chinn and P.G. Morgan; and New York Times Magazine editor in chief Jake Silverstein.
