The broadcaster has already shown one run of the show, which it acquired from Fred Media, the distribution arm of Australia’s WTFN.
The second season is a commission and will run to twenty episodes for the UK digital channel later this year. Season one increased the More4 slot average by 32%.
Channel 4 head of daytime David Sayer greenlit the series, which follows Scott Miller, an Australian-trained, London-based, vet, as he deals with pets and their owners from his Richmond Hill surgery.
The format is based on the WTFN series Bondi Vet and was WTFN’s first UK-made show as it expands activity out its new WFTN Europe base in London.
Shaun Gilmartin, MD of WTFN Europe, commented: “Vet on the Hill has, at its heart, the winning combination of a dedicated, professional vet team led by the charismatic Scott Miller; heart warming, engaging story lines; delivered by a hugely experienced and committed production team.
“This 20-part commission from More4 is the perfect start for WTFN’s new UK business.”
