British broadcaster UKTV has ordered an International Women’s Day special of its observational series Inside the Ambulance for W, its flagship entertainment channel.
The 90-minute doc, Inside the Ambulance: Wonder Women, was produced by Brown Bob Productions and will focus on some of the women the series featured since its debut five years ago.
The special will include new interviews with the female paramedics including, for the first time, during their off-duty hours and at home.
“As a company run by women, we have always looked to celebrate the Wonder Women in front and behind the camera,” Jacqueline Hewer, joint CEO and co-founder of Brown Bob, said in a statement. “It is an absolute privilege to have been welcomed into the homes of our female ambulance crews for this special program. They’ve spoken to us with honesty, heart and of course, humor. This promises to be a real treat for the loyal audience of Inside the Ambulance.”
W’s Inside the Ambulance: Wonder Women was commissioned for BBC Studios-owned UKTV by Hilary Rosen, deputy director of commissioning, and ordered by Adam Collings, channel director for W. Steve North is genre general manager for comedy and entertainment and Richard Watsham is director of commissioning. Susan Maxwell is executive producer for Brown Bob Productions.
Inside the Ambulance: Wonder Women airs March 8 to mark International Women’s Day.
