Dr. Raymer is the mentor and also boss of Dr. McKinley Thompson at York Hospital. The actions centers around the lives of the people who eventually seek help and their situations rather than the treatment prescribed.
The high-powered movie-world - glamorous, yes. but also harsh, cruel and dangerous. Moguls, starlets, directors, secretaries - all living intense personal dramas on the set and off. It's TV's newest scene, with an exciting cast of newcomers. Studio head Bracken is never seen, but Eleanor Parker's his right hand gal.
In addition to occasional uncredited cameo appearances by notable movie stars, some members of the series crew, including cinematographer William Cronjager and film editor Bill Mosher make credited appearances. See more »

series that hearkens back to Hollywood's studio days
"Bracken's World" was in syndication on a New York City TV channel back in the mid-to-late '70s, about five years after it actually aired. It was an interesting show that centered around a powerful producer (Leslie Nielsen) and his studio's group of up and coming starlets. It only ran a year, probably because the concept of the studio system was very dated by 1970, and the show was set in modern times.
Nevertheless, the series had a wonderful cast, including the handsome Peter Haskell, Eleanor Parker, Madelyn Rhue, Dennis Cole, Bettye Ackerman, Karen Jenkens, Jeanne Cooper, Laraine Stephens, and Leslie Nielson. The story lines were very good also. I wish there were a cable station where some of these old dramas could be recycled.
