John Barrowman's Small Animal Hospital To Receive Primetime Slot

News Image
Tern TV is celebrating the success of its Channel 4 daytime series, John Barrowman's Small Animal Hospital.

The show is to receive a new primetime slot this autumn.

The original series will be re-versioned as three one-hour episodes and given a new title. The current working title is Pet Hospital.

Based in the University of Glasgow's School of Veterinary Medicine, the series will follow John as he experiences the hospital's pioneering pet care. He'll join the team of experts as they treat life threatening cases and animals with conditions that are too complex to be dealt with by their local vets. The audience will get to see the heart-warming transformation stories from the moment the 'patients' are brought in, through their diagnosis, treatment and recovery to the moment they are reunited with their owners.

Andrew Snowball, Tern TV's Director of Features and Popular Factual said: "John Barrowman genuinely cares about animals and viewers will really engage with his enthusiasm for and interest in the work of the specialists at the pet hospital. It's always exciting to see a successful daytime series make the jump to primetime and introduce it to a whole new audience. We're confident it will shine in its new slot."
