BBC One orders second series of Animal Frontline from True North

Production of 10 x 30’ episodes to commence immediately for spring 2014 delivery

True North, the UK’s fastest growing indie outside London, has been commissioned to make a second series of ‘Animal Frontline’ for BBC One. The 10 x 30’ will follow the RSPCA’s frontline inspectors as they deal with the 1.3 million calls that flood in to their call centre every year.

Production will commence immediately in time for delivery in spring 2014. Filming will be split between the RSPCA’s Control Room, as cameras monitor the incoming calls, and out on the road with some of the 300 inspectors who deal with cases on ground. The series will travel throughout England and Wales giving audiences close up access to a wide range of heart-warming tales of animal rescue, along with discoveries of neglect and abuse.

Andrew Sheldon, Creative Director at True North and Executive Producer for Animal Frontline, said: “We’re delighted to be starting work on a second series. Animal welfare is something that’s tremendously important to millions of people in the UK, and this series goes to the heart of that. It’s also a chance to further develop our relationship with BBC One Daytime, which has been a cornerstone of True North’s success.”

The series was commissioned by Controller of Daytime, Damian Kavanagh, with Carla-Maria Lawson as the Executive Producer for the BBC and Creative Director Andrew Sheldon as Executive Producer for True North.

International distribution for series two will be managed by IGEL, who will continue to look after series one.
