UK pubcaster Channel 4 has tapped Blast! Films to produce a series on one of the top animal treatment centers in the world, with the working title of The Supervet.

The 4 x 60-minute series will use rigged cameras and conventional filming to follow the work done by the 100 vets and nurses at Surrey-based Fitzpatrick Referrals, and tell the story of the owners and their pets.

Led by Irish neuro-orthopaedic vet Noel Fitzpatrick, the team save the lives of animals every day with pioneering surgery, including bionic limbs and new procedures.

The Supervet is executive produced by Alistair Pegg and Edmund Coulthard, and the producer and director is James Incledon.

“Noel is one of the most visionary surgeons practicing in the UK and we’re delighted to be filming with him,” said C4′s features commissioner Nick Hornby, who commissioned The Supervet. “This series will capture all the emotion and elation that goes with the incredible pioneering work that he and his team carry out on a daily basis.”
