UKTV prescribes second series of Dr Christian

Dr Christian Jessen returns for a second series of Dr Christian Will See You Now (8x60') exclusively on UKTV's premium entertainment channel W, following the success of series one which saw W up 4% on slot reaching 3.26m individuals across the series. 

Dr Christian Will See You Now, is an eight-part series from Firecracker Films which will see the renowned doctor return to his state-of-the-art clinic to diagnose, counsel and treat patients who desperately need his help. 

Dr Christian Jessen said: 

"It's great to be back doing what I love; being a doctor and educating the public about all aspects of their health. The first series really showed how medicine is not just about treating a disease but looking after the whole person, and often this means their nearest and dearest too. I'm looking forward to sending more patients on their journeys of discovery and recovery and my team and I will be there every step of the way. I'm excited to see what results we can achieve this time around and am sure they will be as moving and inspirational as ever." 

The series has been commissioned by Helen Nightingale, and ordered by W general manager Steve North and UKTV's director of commissioning Richard Watsham. The second series of Dr Christian Will See You Now is due for transmission later this year, with Jes Wilkins, Federico Ruiz and Sam Emmery as executive producers, for Firecracker Films. Helen Nightingale will oversee as executive producer for UKTV. Passion Distribution will continue to distribute Dr Christian Will See You Now for international.
