Cineflix Sells 'Trauma Doctors' Doc Series to Channel 5
TORONTO – Cineflix Productions has been tapped by Channel 5 to produce the medical documentary series Trauma Doctors.
Set in the Royal London Hospital trauma unit, the four one-hour series will focus on life and death storylines around London's Air Ambulance service based on the roof of the hospital.
Camilla Lewis, managing director of Cineflix Productions U.K., a division of Toronto-based Cineflix Media, said Trauma Doctors goes beyond fixed-rig, static observation series to offer a 360-degree view of frontline trauma consultants investigating an accident patient’s condition and treating them on the hop.
“It's a technique we are developing in other genres,” Lewis added in a statement.
Channel 5 will debut Trauma Doctors in April.
Cineflix Rights is distributing the series internationally as Trauma Investigators.
