Nine CEO David Gyngell is believed to have signed a deal with FremantleMedia, formerly Grundy Productions.
Fremantle’s Mark Fennessy told the Sunday Telegraph the show would be a primetime cross between Grey’s Anatomy and The Secret Life of Us set at the Royal Albert Memorial, and based on the original characters. It will not be a daily programme.
“We’re not making the same program – it’s a relationship-based drama that will be sophisticated, sexy and contemporary,” he said.
“We wouldn’t want to lose the essence of what made it popular the first time around. When you revisit something 20 years later you need to take into account what made it successful the first time around. People falling in and out of love, relationships, terribly good-looking doctors and nurses.”
The original Young Doctors also aired on Nine.
