TLC is diving even deeper into the body horror genre with its new series “Save My Skin.”
Set in the private practice of Dr. Emma Craythorne, one of England’s top dermatologists, the series follows the good doctor as she diagnoses and treats patients with some of the most extreme skin conditions in the U.K.
The promo (above, arguably NSFW) features some truly gruesome footage of various skin ailments being picked, popped and straight-up pulled out of people in Dr. Craythorne’s office. Absolutely do not watch if you are squeamish and/or eating.
“Save My Skin” premieres Thursday, Feb. 20 at 11 p.m. after the equally grotesque “My Feet Are Killing Me,” before settling into its regular 9 p.m. timeslot on Thursday, March 5.
“At TLC, audiences absolutely love our unmatched stories of transformation, where we showcase some of the best doctors in their fields improving lives, inside and out,” said Howard Lee, President and GM, TLC. “Dr. Emma brings incredible humility, heart and humor to each of her cases and most importantly, gives patients their confidence back. I’m so excited for her to join our growing roster of amazing doctors on TLC.”
The series is produced by Full Fat TV for Discovery Networks International and with Discovery Studios’ production services for TLC.
