Channel 5 has commissioned Women’s Health Uncovered (4 x 60’) from Lambent Productions.
The series sees presenter Cherry Healey uncover the “secrets and taboos” surrounding women’s health. “Unashamed, unembarrassed, unflinching, this is a series that tackles women’s health with humour, warmth and clear-sighted questioning that demands answers.”
Lucy Willis, Commissioning Editor Factual, Channel 5, ViacomCBS said: “This timely, brave and ambitious series lifts the lid on some of the plethora of health issues that women suffer from – often in in silence and shame.”
Cherry Healey commented: “To be able to play a part in shining the light on some of women’s most hidden away health issues is a huge honour and I’m so looking forward to meeting the incredible women taking part in the series and going on this journey with them. It is so important to me that we start to destigmatise women’s health issues as a society, and this series, which is the first female focused health show of its kind, will hopefully set a great foundation for getting crucial conversations started!”
Throughout the series Cherry joins a variety of women as they embark on treatments for serious health issues and will also talk to several celebrities who will share their own deeply personal experiences and struggles with varying conditions. Experts will also be on hand to help them understand the condition better and spend time with a fellow sufferer to see the condition from a new perspective.
Managing Director of Lambent Productions Emma Wakefield commented: “This is a series that celebrates women whilst also giving them practical help as they deal with health issues that are often overlooked. Lambent is delighted to be producing a series that tackles the taboos around women’s bodies, puts women first and tells their stories.”
Executive Producers for Lambent Productions are – Ollie Tait and Emma Wakefield
