National Geographic People, together with The Feds and Screen Australia, today announced the commissioning of Miracle Hospital 2 as part of its ongoing commitment to bring compelling and dramatic local content to the channel.

A 6 x 44mins extraordinary documentary series showcasing Australian medical innovation and excellence as it tells the powerful stories of everyday Australians facing incredible challenges.

The inspirational documentary series returns with all new stories to take viewers behind the scenes at St Vincent’s Hospitals in Sydney and Melbourne, where elite medical teams use the very latest science and technology to perform ground-breaking and life-saving procedures every day. In this powerful factual medical series, audiences will be given unprecedented access in real time to the hospitals, their operating theatres, patients and specialists to showcase the work of dedicated teams of specialists and researchers who are among the world leaders in medical innovation.

Miracle Hospital is an important documentary series as it showcases Australian medical innovation and excellence. It tells powerful stories of everyday Australians facing incredible challenges. These are stories we all can relate to, will be fascinated and inspired by, and will make us proud as we see how Australia is leading the way in so many areas of medical science and innovation.

The series is a The Feds production for National Geographic People globally, series produced by Belinda Gibbon and Executive Produced and Series Directed by Julia Peters. International distribution will be handled by National Geographic / FNG Content Sales.

Jerry Butterfield ANZ Director Content & Communications Fox Networks Group said “It’s important for the Nat Geo People brand that we can tell stories where cutting edge science intersects with the emotional and personal journeys of real people, so we’re very pleased to commission a second season of Miracle Hospital with The Feds after the first was so successful in engaging Australian and International viewers alike.

“On the back of the success of series 1, we are thrilled to be working again with National Geographic on another series of Miracle Hospital. To be able to showcase Australia’s medical innovation to such a large audience is a privilege and we are very proud to have the support of NGC, Screen Australia and of course, St Vincent’s” said Executive Producer / Series Director Julia Peters.

The series has received production funding from Screen Australia.

“The first season of Miracle Hospital was broadcast around the globe, a significant achievement for local production company The Feds,” said Liz Stevens, Senior Manager of Documentary at Screen Australia. “We are thrilled to partner with The Feds and Nat Geo to support a second series, which will continue to showcase the world-class skills of our Australian doctors and surgeons as they undertake ground-breaking medical procedures.”

Production will begin in July 2017 and the series will screen on National Geographic People in 2018.
