UKTV’s flagship entertainment channel W has handed out a bumper three season renewal to Inside The Ambulance. The three season pick-up encompasses a second and third season, each consisting of ten episodes; and a special ten episode festive series, Inside The Christmas Ambulance.
Inside The Ambulance is a mobile fixed rig series that follows the work of West Midlands Ambulance Service and gives an intimate perspective on what it’s like to respond to emergency calls. The series uses GoPro cameras that are mounted both inside the ambulance and on crew members themselves.
The second and third seasons of the show, which is produced by Brown Bib Productions, will air on W consecutively in November 2017, while Inside The Christmas Ambulance will air in 2018. The latter series will focus on one of the busiest times of year for the ambulance service. While revellers let their hair down, it’s the ambulance staff who are left to pick up the pieces. Both were commissioned by W General Manager Steve North and UKTV Commissioning Executive Natalie Rose. Natalie will executive produce for UKTV alongside Brown Bob Productions’ Creative Director Jacqueline Hewer.
“We’re just thrilled to be bringing Inside the Ambulance back to W and commissioning in such volume, it demonstrates just how committed we are to giving our audience exactly what they want”, said UKTV’s Natalie Rose. “Brown Bob have already proven their ability to give the viewer front row access to the grippingly critical work of the ambulance service, whilst finding just the right measure of humour and charm, that makes it all so unmissable. The next three series will only deliver more, as well as the surprising nuances Christmas and New Year festivities will inevitably bring.”
