          Behind the Scenes

          June 06, 2003

          Dr. Phil gives viewers an all access pass behind the scenes of his show and nothing is off limits!

          Finding the Right Guests
          Producers read thousands of viewer e-mails hoping to find the right guests. Finding people who were willing to appear on “Men Who Cheat” and “My Spouse Acts Like a Child” was a challenge.

          See how they booked the guests.

          Getting the Star Treatment
          Ever wonder what it’s like being a guest on Dr. Phil? Follow Kellie, who appeared on “Debate Dr. Phil,” from the time she was booked to appear, to the day she was whisked to the studio in a limousine.

          A Show from A to Z
          “Sometimes, getting the show on the air is not always as easy as it may look,” says Dr. Phil. “We do two shows a day, three days a week.” Follow one production team as they put together “Sex Wars.”
          Go behind the scenes of a show in the making.


          From the TV  to the Computer
          From writing advice articles to producing Web features and finding potential guests from the message boards, the Web staff brings the Dr. Phil experience to viewers online.
