UK distributor Steadfast International will take TEN’s factual series Bondi Vet to MIPCOM this year, but there is still no indication of when the show will air in Australia.
MIPCOM, along with MIPTV, is one of the international industry’s key trade events, due mid-October in Cannes.
Featuring Sydney veterinarian, Dr. Chris Brown, formerly of Harry’s Practice, Burke’s Backyard, and Today, the series was produced by WTFN.
Steadfast says the (14×30′) series is shot in HD, following Brown as he lives, works and surfs on the world’s most famous beach. It was originally mooted as an 8 part series.
Earlier this year TEN said, “Viewers will be treated to the behind-the-scenes action of the veterinary surgery and will also get a sneak peak into the life of this handsome, intelligent and empathetic vet.”
But the show was absent on a list of programmes in TEN’s second-half of 2008. Animal shows are all the rage this year with RSPCA Animal Rescue, The Zoo, Outback Wildlife Rescue and Animal Emergency.
