Seven’s newest factual show Triple Zero Heroes is yet to unveil its host / narrator, so its Executive Producer John Rudd is left to spruik the show, saying, “Not even a lifetime in the news business prepared me for Triple Zero Heroes.
“These stories are just so powerful. So human. And so humbling. Children helping deliver babies. Passers-by keeping accident victims alive. Parents reviving children. Grown men and women saving their elderly parents. Workmates saving each other. And brave individuals saved by the strength and calmness of Triple Zero Heroes.”
That would be the emergency workers, presumably, not the show itself…
Produced by FremantleMedia, the show which launches in February will combine true-to-life re-enactments, plus rescues and interviews with the people involved on both sides of the stories.
FremantleMedia’s Director of Factual, Paul Franklin, adds, “The subject matter of Triple Zero Heroes combined with the fantastic access our production team has had to the people on the calls and the rescue services involved, means that our stories will resonate deeply with our audience. We are very proud of how we have evolved the subject matter into a television program that has such heart.”
So far Seven has had a very good strike rate with its factual shows, which are now the mainstay of its 7:30pm hour.
Each program ends with a reunion between those grateful to be alive and those who kept them alive.
A host is expected to be announced soon.
