WTFN has secured multiple re-commissions from long-standing broadcaster partner the Nine Network.
The new orders, totalling 45 hours, comprise series four of Paramedics, series three of Emergency, as well as series 11 of Bondi Vet and the recently confirmed second series of hit lifestyle title Space Invaders.
Paramedics and Emergency – both 10 x 60 – are dramatic obs-doc series that follow real-life medical teams. Paramedics tracks the work of Australia’s ambulance service and captures moments of compassion, bravery, and laughter, while giving unprecedented insight into the daily lives of these emergency service heroes. Emergency, filmed with unparalleled access to emergency room teams in The Royal Melbourne, one of Australia’s biggest and busiest emergency hospitals, reveals each step of a patient’s journey, from the moment they’re rushed into hospital, and conveys gripping accounts from the doctors and nurses as they fight to save patients suffering life-threatening injuries.
Bondi Vet 11 (15 x 60) will continue to tap into a range of veterinary practices across Australia to reveal wonderful stories of vets, pets, and their owners, while Space Invaders 2, (10 x 60) a ratings-winning and emotional mix of de-cluttering, renovation and transformation, will raise the bar for the new season, just about to go into production, by taking on even bigger challenges than before.
Steve Oemcke, WTFN’s Creative Director and Co-founder says: “Hamish Turner and the team at Nine Network have made an incredible commitment to WTFN in recent years and we are naturally delighted that this partnership will continue with new seasons for each of these shows.”
Hamish Turner, Nine Network’s Program Director, adds: “We are pleased to confirm new contracts for each of these popular series for our next season. Bondi Vet is a long-standing family viewing favourite and Space Invaders is a refreshing and absorbing new entrant to the lifestyle space. Emergency and Paramedics have quickly become staples in the Nine Network’s primetime schedules. The subject matter is always interesting, but the intense nature of each show, the way they are filmed, and the big characters we follow have successfully elevated them to something approaching drama. Consequently, they have become must-see shows for our viewers.”
