Lifestories was a 1990 medical drama broadcast in the United States by the NBC television network.

Done in a documentary style with off-screen narration by Robert Prosky, Lifestories was an attempt to make an extremely realistic medical drama answering questions like, "Exactly what goes on during the first 45 minutes of a heart attack?" "What is it like to be told that you have advanced colon cancer?"

Apparently, the realism was too much for the program to find a mass audience; its Nielsen ratings were abysmal for it had to compete with the Top 10 hit America's Funniest Home Videos, the Top 20 hit America's Funniest People both on ABC, and CBS's Top 20 hit Murder, She Wrote and it was cancelled after less than four months on the air.
