Endemol Shine to make an Australian version of the UK hit .
Network 10 will be home to a brand new version of the life-changing factual series, One Born Every Minute.
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia, this tender and emotional new series will be set in a bustling maternity ward and will capture all of the fear, love and joy that comes with welcoming new life into the world.
From the reception desk to the operating theatre, remotely-operated cameras will capture the unpredictable, emotional and sometimes precarious situations that happen every day in a maternity unit. With no-nonsense nurses, first-time mums and anxious dads, the human drama of One Born Every Minute will have you holding your breath, reaching for the tissues… and considering your own family plan carefully.
On commissioning the series, Network 10 Chief Content Officer Beverley McGarvey, says, “We have seen our audiences really embrace and enjoy an insight into the world of genuinely amazing Australians including paramedics and life-guards so having the opportunity to now get close to the incredible and dedicated teams who help us through childbirth is not only thrilling but is a real privilege and a series we believe will be very special.”
Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Carl Fennessy, says, “One Born Every Minute is one of the world’s most dramatic, emotional and breath taking factual series. We are incredibly proud to bring this BAFTA Award winning format to Australian audiences in 2019”.
Created by Dragonfly, part of Endemol Shine UK, the original award-winning documentary series One Born Every Minute has now been adapted in ten markets including France, Denmark, Czech Republic and Israel. The Australian version will made by Endemol Shine Australia and distributed globally by Endemol Shine International.
One Born Every Minute commences production in Sydney in the coming months and will be broadcast on 10 and WIN Network. One Born Every Minute UK will premiere on Saturday 2 March on 10.
