Neal Baer is developing the hourlong hospital drama, Life or Death for NBC.

The former ER executive producer is teaming with Dawn DeNoon (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) to write the script about two near by Los Angeles hospitals - one a private facility for the wealthy, the other a county facility for the uninsured, notes Variety. At the center of the action will be a doctor who spends most of his time working at the county hospital but performs plastic surgery at the upscale hospital to make money.

There's no production schedule yet for Life or Death.
