Production has commenced this week in Melbourne on the new real-life medical series Emergency, based on the doctors and nurses at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. The show will give viewers a unique insight into the inner workings of Victoria’s first hospital.
Emergency will be produced by WTFN, creators of Nine’s hit series, Paramedics.
WTFN’s Director of Content, Steve Oemcke, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Victoria’s most famous hospital on this compelling new series. Australia has fallen in love with the heroes of Paramedics, and we’re excited to now tell the story of the doctors and nurses at the Royal Melbourne as they take over the life-saving care of these patients.”
Nine Program Director, Hamish Turner, said: “The success of Paramedics highlighted the real appetite for this style of blue light factual and storytelling. Emergency will go behind-the-scenes of one of the country’s busiest hospitals to showcase the incredible life-saving work performed by the unsung heroes who work there.”
Emergency will go to air on Nine later this year.
