Zero Point Zero Productions has been tapped to produce Hawaii Air Rescue (w/t), a six-part docuseries following an air ambulatory crew that serves the Hawaiian Islands.

The half-hour series premieres on September 5 at 9 p.m. EST.

The nwtwork says viewers will see the Hawaii Life Flight team face traumatic medical cases, dramatic weather conditions, and other environmental dangers as they make life-saving medical calls, rescues and transfers.

“Hawaii looks like paradise to most people, but this series will show viewers an entirely different side to island life,” said Michael Dingley, senior vice president, content and development for The Weather Channel. “When you have a medical emergency on a remote tropical island, the last thing you need is weather getting in the way of your care. Hawaii Air Rescue shows how this brave crew manages to save lives and battle the elements in the process.”
