Exec produced by Lark’s Louise Clark and Erin Haskett, the 10-part docuseries will follow dispatchers at BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) from the 911 call to the ambulance ride home.

The series received funding from the CMF and the Telus Fund and is set to premiere on Knowledge Network’s linear channel and website in spring 2019.

In January 2014, Lark and Knowledge teamed up for Emergency Room: Life + Death at VGHThe six-part series examined how staff at the Vancouver General Hospital dealt with difficult situations. In addition to linear, the show had a website with a online poll and a moderated discussion section to accompany the series.
