"Hunting the Nightmare Bacteria," a FRONTLINE program co-produced by the Investigative Reporting Workshop, will be re-broadcast on PBS on July 7.

The program looks at whether the age of antibiotics is coming to an end, following individuals, such as Addie Rerecich, left, thrust onto life support in Arizona, and institutions, including an uncontrollable outbreak at one of the nation’s most prestigious hospitals. (Those of you who saw the original program can find updates on Addie on her mom's Facebook page.)

"Nightmare Bacteria" is one of three programs related to drug-resistant bacteria that Producer Rick Young and reporter and correspondent David E. Hoffman have worked on together. Graduate student Katie LeDain chronicled how the stories came to be when the third program aired earlier this spring.
