George Kondylis, chief of emergency medicine, added, “We are excited to be able to offer viewers a glimpse into the care delivered each and every day at Lawrence General Hospital.”
Mark Downie, executive producer of the show and Head of Factual for Maverick TV, the company producing the series, said he was “amazed at the professionalism, capabilities, efficiency and overall calmness of Lawrence General’s trauma staff, and it was an honor to work with them.
“We are excited that worldwide, viewer access to ‘Bizarre ER’ will top 1 billion individuals, our show’s widest spread yet. The series is already airing in Norway and Bulgaria and is rated in the top 10 in both countries.”
The program is narrated by singer and actor John Barrowman.
This marks the season premiere of the fifth season of “Bizarre ER” and the first time the medical documentary series has filmed at a U.S. hospital.
The Emergency Department-based observational documentary series has been an extremely highly-rated BBC Series in the United Kingdom.
In addition to Lawrence General, the series will also showcase Bradford Royal Infirmary in England.
The show is made by the same people who make TV’s Embarrassing Bodies, Children’s Hospital, Trauma, and Born too Soon.
At Lawrence General, filming began Oct. 1 last year and continued through mid-December.
Two production crews, working in shifts, filmed between the hours of 2 p.m. and 12 midnight, Sunday through Thursday.
