RFDS on Channel 7

Channel 7’s upcoming drama, RFDS, will received it’s premiere on Wednesday 11 August, after the Olympics.

The series, stars Stephen Peacocke, Rob Collins, Emma Hamilton, Justine Clarke and Ash Ricardo and focuses on stories from the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Filmed on location in and around Broken Hill, RFDS captures the beauty and brutality of Australia’s vast centre where the doctors and the nurses, pilots and support staff of the RFDS negotiate the unique challenges of emergency rescues across some of the most inhospitable places in the country.

RFDS is also a story about community and people coming together to laugh, to cry and to triumph over adversity as the RFDS navigate private lives as turbulent and profound as the heart-stopping emergencies they attend.

RFDS is an Endemol Shine Banks production for the Seven Network, with major production investment from Seven in association with Screen Australia. It was financed with support from Screen NSW through the Made in NSW Fund and the Regional Filming Fund.
