Endemol Shine has announced that Dragonfly has been commissioned to create a new series of Ambulance for BBC One.
The new series will be in eight parts, compared to the previous series which was only spilt up into three episodes.
Series two will shed light on the work of the West Midlands Ambulance Service. Each hour-long episode will document the long tiresome shifts of the paramedics, controllers and call handlers, providing a 360 degree view of everyone involved.
Ambulance, will follow the work of paramedics and medical teams who work long hours to attend to the publics needs, no matter the issue.
Kim Shillinglaw, Director of Factual Programming at Endemol Shine UK said: “Ambulance is a beautifully executed series of real quality packed with drama and warmth. We are thrilled the channel has asked for more than double the episodes for the second series.”
Danny Horan, who commissioned the series for the BBC added: “Ambulance goes way beyond the blue flashing lights genre and tells the complex story of a public service under intense pressure from many corners. It's a series that uniquely delivers both heart rending and life affirming stories with extraordinary insight into our increasingly complicated world.”
