Canadian transplantation

CTV medical drama Transplant has topped the ratings at home in Canada and is now scoring success for NBC in the US. Bell Media president of content and programming Mike Cosentino explains the show is part of a much bigger story for the company.

Canadian medical drama Transplant is notable for a number of reasons. First and foremost, its central protagonist is a Syrian doctor who flees his war-torn homeland to build a new life in Toronto, played by Hamza Haq.

Second, having debuted on CTV in February just before the coronavirus pandemic hit, the 13-parter became the number one new show in Canada and was among a flurry of pick-ups from US networks facing content supply squeezes as a result of the global production shutdown.

The series, made by Sphère Média Plus in association with CTV and NBCUniversal International Studios, was picked up by NBC in June, while at the same time being renewed. It debuted in the US in September to impressive ratings, following in the tradition of titles like ER, Chicago Med and New Amsterdam.
