Network 10 has announced yet another 2019 commission, welcoming One Born Every Minute to the 10 family.
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia, the series will be set in a bustling maternity ward and will capture all of the fear, love and joy that comes with welcoming new life into the world.
The program is from a format that is on air in the UK and other markets.
On commissioning the series, Network 10 chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: “We have seen our audiences really embrace and enjoy an insight into the world of genuinely amazing Australians including paramedics and life-guards so having the opportunity to now get close to the incredible and dedicated teams who help us through childbirth is not only thrilling but is a real privilege and a series we believe will be very special.”
Endemol Shine Australia CEO Carl Fennessy said: “One Born Every Minute is one of the world’s most dramatic, emotional and breath taking factual series. We are incredibly proud to bring this BAFTA Award winning format to Australian audiences in 2019”.
Created by Dragonfly, part of Endemol Shine UK, the award winning documentary series has now been adapted in 10 markets including France, Denmark, Czech Republic and Israel. The Australian version will be made by Endemol Shine Australia and distributed globally by Endemol Shine International.
One Born Every Minute will commence production in Sydney in the coming months.
