WBD Commissions for U.K. & Ireland


Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) has ordered a mix of five new and returning titles for discovery+ and linear.

The new Fatal Flight: Shoreham delves into the story of a fighter jet that tragically crashed into a busy main road during the Shoreham Airshow in 2015. The film follows the disaster, its aftermath and the fight for justice. Produced by Ricochet, it will be released on discovery+ in December.

Shed & Buried: Classic Cars is an 8×60-minute series for Quest, following Henry Cole and Fuzz Townsend as they search for classic cars. Each of the HCA Entertainment-produced episodes will feature a different vehicle, with the series airing in early 2024.

The Face Doctors (w.t.) is a brand-new medical series for Really, following patients as they undergo life-changing surgery and cutting-edge treatment to remedy their serious facial conditions. The series is set to broadcast mid-2024.

Aussie Gold Hunters, produced by Electric Pictures, also is set to return for season ten in 2025. Help! My House is Haunted also returns to discovery+, heading into its sixth season in 2024.

Clare Laycock, senior VP head of content for networks and streaming at WBD in the U.K. and Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome brand-new shows to our streaming and linear portfolio. Fatal Flight: Shoreham is an ambiguous and engrossing story with many questions on the truth behind the fatal crash left unanswered. On the other hand, Shed & Buried: Classic Cars is a great new addition to our linear portfolio, appealing to petrol heads, vintage lovers as well as treasure hunters! We’re also pleased to see our long-running franchises return with more episodes of viewer-favorite paranormal and extreme jobs shows.”
