UK commercial broadcaster ITV has commissioned a new format from indie prodco 7 Wonder that explores some of Britain’s most extraordinary health conditions.

In The Untreatablesa team of world-leading doctors treat patients whose lives have been blighted by mystery illnesses and extreme conditions, both physical and psychological. Combining cutting-edge treatments and new surgeries, the medics attempt to solve the mysteries of ailments that have baffled doctors, and left patients desperate for answers.

The Untreatables will join patients from the moment the search for a diagnosis begins, all the way through to the climax, where they reveal to their families whether they’ve been cured.

“This is 7 Wonder’s first commission for the new team at ITV and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to make such an ambitious new health format,” said Duncan Coates (pictured), creative director at 7 Wonder, in a statement.

The show, which will air in an ITV primetime slot, reunites Embarrassing Bodies commissioning editors Sue Murphy and Kate Teckman with its creator Alexandra Fraser. It will be executive produced by 7 Wonder’s Coates, who was behind ITV’s Long Lost Family.
