EXCLUSIVE: A new vet is coming to TV, with Nine picking up Vet on the Hill starring Aussie vet Dr. Scott Miller at his three UK clinics in the Richmond Hill district.
Produced by WTFN’s new London-based production company, the series includes life saving surgery, home visits, local farms, famous faces and devoted pet owners.
Originally commissioned by UK channel More4-and a first UK commission for WTFN (Bondi Vet)- the first season boosted timeslot ratings by more than 30%.
Shaun Gilmartin, MD of WTFN Europe, commented: “Vet on the Hill has, at its heart, the winning combination of a dedicated, professional vet team led by the charismatic Scott Miller; heart warming, engaging story lines; delivered by a hugely experienced and committed production team. This 20-part commission from More4 is the perfect start for WTFN’s new UK business.”
Dr. Miller studied in Brisbane and began his career at the RSPCA in Sydney, before moving to the UK more than 10 years ago. He has appeared on BBC Breakfast News, The Paul O’Grady Show, GMTV, Blue Peter and CBBC.
An airdate is yet to be announced.
