Channel 4 Features has commissioned Over My Dead Body (w/t), an ambitious new health series from 7Wonder, to be fronted by Davina McCall (pictured).
The series takes extreme examples of some of Britain’s most troublesome health issues and challenges them head on. Produced by independent production company 7Wonder, backed by Seven Network Australia, the series has been commissioned by Channel 4’s deputy head of features, Alex Menzies, marking the company’s first commission for the channel.
Menzies said: “Over My Dead Body (w/t) is an exciting project for Channel 4 features, part of a new tranche of commissions which aims to explore health issues that affect huge swathes of us in new, engaging and challenging ways.”
Sarah Trigg, executive producer for 7Wonder said: “This is exactly the kind of ambitious and imaginative project we hope to make a hallmark of 7Wonder. Davina really is the perfect host for a series that will combine compelling personal stories with cutting edge health content. This is also our first commission for Channel 4, since we launched just over a year ago, so we’re delighted that it has backed us to deliver such an audacious series.”
