Channel 5 Commissions Crash Investigators


Channel 5 has ordered the three-part docuseries Crash Investigators from Mentorn Media.

The program follows the work of crash investigation teams in North Yorkshire, one of the most dangerous driving countries in the U.K. Each episode provides coverage of entire investigations, from life-saving attempts at the crash scenes to the final court cases.

Crash Investigators will be executive produced by Tayte Simpson for Mentorn Media, part of the Tinopolis Group.

“At Channel 5, we’re always looking for new access on familiar topics to keep our schedules fresh and exciting,” said Adrian Padmore, commissioning editor at Channel 5. “We know that our viewers enjoy watching the emergency services at work, and this series will provide them with a new angle, enabling them to dive much deeper into crash investigations from start to finish and gain rare insight into the painstaking work that goes on behind the scenes.”
