It’s been seven years since Ann Curry last regularly appeared on live television, when she exited as co-anchor of the Today show, where she had worked since 1997. Now Curry is returning to live TV with Chasing the Cure, a 90-minute series debuting tonight on TNT and TBS that will use a combination of crowdsourcing and top doctors to help people suffering from various undiagnosed and misdiagnosed medical mysteries.
