TV prodco Kilburn Television has secured the exclusive, global rights to produce a docuseries featuring Dr. Sergio Canavero and an international team of doctors and scientists as they prep for the first-ever human head transplant surgery.

The new docuseries will explore the layers of scientific, ethical, human and religious issues that Canavero and his team face as they prepare for and execute the surgery.

Despite much controversy, Canavero and his team remain confident that experimental results on animals and cadavers will translate to a live human head transplant.

The project will be produced and developed by Kilburn Television — the television production arm of Kilburn Media — and executive produced by Aaron Kaufman and Tina Gazzerro Clapp.

Kilburn Media is a diversified media and entertainment company. Its media investment holdings include its film production unit, the Canadian/worldwide TV distributor The Fremantle Corporation, the non-scripted television production company Go Go Luckey Entertainment and its live event affiliated companies Kilburn Live and The Works Entertainment.
