Discovery visits GRB’s Untold Stories Of The E.R
Discovery in Italy, Spain and Latin America have acquired docuseries Untold Stories Of The E.R, which is produced and sold by GRB Studios.
The show, which has been broadcast in 125 countries, dramatises real-life stories of the emergency room, featuring the actual doctors who lived through the experiences.
It is into its 13th season in the U.S on TLC, with 162 episodes and specials having been produced over 15 years. The deal was struck by GRB’s newly appointed SVP of international Sarah Coursey, who was appointed over the summer.
“Many docudramas don’t even make it to the second season, let alone the 13th, and Untold Stories Of The ER’s success is a testament to the appetite of global audiences for raw, real and unexpected true stories of regular people who find themselves in the most irregular of situations,” Coursey said.
