Emma Willis is to return to UKTV’s W channel for a two-part special, Emma Willis: Special Births (2 x 60’).
Produced by Firecracker Films, each episode will include footage of births captured last year at the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Over two episodes, Emma will meet a selection of parents and babies six months after initial filming and discover how each family’s journey has unfolded since their time on the maternity ward.
Emma Willis: Special Births is commissioned for UKTV by Helen Nightingale, senior commissioning editor and ordered by Adam Collings, channel director for W. Steve North is genre general manager for comedy and entertainment and Richard Watsham is director of commissioning. The series is executive produced for Firecracker Films by Sam Emmery, head of documentaries, and Jes Wilkins, chief creative officer.
Helen Nightingale said: “Emma is so passionate about her role as a Maternity Care Assistant and it’s wonderful to see her re-visit families to see how childbirth has changed their lives since leaving the hospital. I’m sure there’ll be some lovely revelations and will be truly heart-warming telly.”
Adam Collings said: “We’re thrilled to have more Emma Willis on W. Our highest performing series on the channel is Delivering Babies and it’s a real gem. We can’t wait to see more of the incredible birthing stories in this two-part special.”
Sam Emmery, head of documentaries for Firecracker Films, said: “We are delighted to be working with the wonderfully talented Emma Willis and fantastic team at W again on this two-part special series. The series will give W viewers a unique opportunity to see a whole new set of birth stories and will showcase the amazing work the maternity staff at the Princess Alexandra Hospital carry out on a daily basis.”
