Endemol Shine North America will produce the new docuseries Ambulance for CBS.

The one-hour series delves into the intense world of emergency medical workers and the 911 dispatchers who make split second decisions during life-threatening emergencies. The series is being developed for CBS based on the format of the UK show of the same name, originally created by Dragonfly — an Endemol Shine UK production company.

With an estimated 240 million 911 calls made per year in the U.S., Ambulance peels back the curtain on what happens inside the nation’s Emergency Medical Service. Focusing on select call center personnel and field crews, Ambulance will provide a snapshot of the constant daily pressures EMS workers face. Every second counts, which could mean life and death as they respond to a variety of emergencies from cardiac arrests to overdoses, and more.

The UK version of Ambulance (pictured) aired on BBC1 and was renewed for a second season Thursday.

On the new CBS series, executive producers for Endemol Shine North America are Eden Gaha, Rob Smith and Robin Feinberg.
