LIFE ON DUTY
TLV • SEPTEMBER 2015
Gil Formats, the new content creator and distribution arm of veteran Israeli independent, Gil Productions, will make its first showing at MIPCOM 2015 with new returnable observational factual entertainment format, Life On Duty.
With the narrative line of a drama, the new format follows characters from three emergency services – police, fire, and hospital trauma – and contrasts the brutal and at times heroic days and nights spent on the job with their often neglected private lives.
The factual prime time format will document dramatic emergencies, adding unique insight into the personal price emergency service workers pay in commitment to their profession.
Assaf Gil, CEO of Gil Productions said of the all-new offering:
“Life On Duty is exactly the kind of revelatory format we launched Gil Formats to deliver. By marrying the storytelling conventions of popular drama with the surprise and energy of true life formats, we get a compelling sense of what some of these people’s lives are really like.”
Life On Duty has been commissioned by Channel 10 Israel (12 x 60 mins) to air in Winter 2016 and is available from Gil Formats at MIPCOM 2015.
