Network Ten greenlights Endemol Shine’s Ambulance

Network Ten has commissioned a season of Dragonfly’s (part of Endemol Shine UK) Ambulance for an Australian iteration.

Network Ten’s Ambulance will be produced by Endemol Shine Australia (ESA).

The fly-on-the-wall series will take an unprecedented look at the New South Wales Ambulance frontline.

Each episode will provide an honest look at the everyday demands on call takers, dispatchers and on road paramedics, who are forced to make split second decisions that can mean the difference between life and death.

The series has commenced production in Sydney and will air on Ten and Win Network later this year.

Created by Dragonfly, part of Endemol Shine UK, Ambulance will also be soon be coming to Israel.

Network Ten chief content officer Beverley McGarvey, said: “We are delighted to bring the Ambulance format to Network Ten. The engaging and emotional human drama has made this show a huge hit in the UK and we are sure Australian audiences will find the amazing work of the NSW Ambulance service equally compelling.”

Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Mark Fennessy said: “Through a combination of ground-breaking production techniques and inspired storytelling, Ambulance Australia reveals the incredible synchronicity between paramedics in the field and call takers and dispatchers in the emergency control centre as they face a diversity of challenges on any given shift that is nothing short of staggering. Their compassion and selflessness is breathtaking”.
