UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned a docuseries on dog adoption from Five Mile Films.

The 8 x 60-minute The Dog House (w/t) follows the 60-person team at Wood Green, the animals charity in Cambridgeshire, as they work to care for and rehabilitate neglected dogs and find them new homes. The series will use fixed rig cameras to follow the dogs from the moment they arrive at Wood Green all the way to — hopefully — their new “furever” homes.

Nick Mirsky serves as executive producer at Five Mile, with Charlotte Desai as commissioning editor at C4.

“We’re often told that Brits are dog-lovers but, with over 100,000 dogs currently homeless, The Dog House (w/t) will be a fascinating insight into the rehoming process,” said Desai in a statement. “We hope to reveal not only a great deal about these dogs but also the lives of those seeking to adopt, as well as those seeking to leave dogs at a shelter.”
