Geronimo taps Be-Entertainment to distribute ‘Doctor Davy’
Emmy-nominated Belgian producer Geronimo is teaming up with Be-Entertainment to distribute its newest title ‘Doctor Davy’. The factual show will be launched on VTM later this month and introduced to the international market at MIPTV in Cannes this April.
‘Doctor Davy’ shares touching portraits of young kids on their courageous hospital journey. An especially developed ‘doctor doll’, with a camera inserted in its stethoscope, offers the viewer an up close and personal inside view of the pediatrician ward of a local hospital. “Doctor Davy” brightens up the hospital and its little visitors, adding a positive note to the highly popular and moving factual reality genre.
Jasper Moeyaert Geronimo’s CEO, notes: “For each new program, we question ourselves and our way of filming. In creating this series, we strongly felt the need to introduce a totally new camera angle.” Co-CEO, Emanuel Vanderjeugd adds: “The doctor doll not only eliminates the embarrassment a child often feels towards a camera crew, but it also literally places the direction of what takes place in the hands of the child. This doll enables the children and their parents to tell their hospitalization story themselves.”
Says Gepke Nederlof (MD, Be-Entertainment): “Geronimo is known for its inventive ways of producing with a focus on their camera usage. ‘Doctor Davy’ is one of their best inventions to date. The ‘Doctor Davy’ doll makes it possible to share authentic stories of these kids in such an endearing and moving way that it adds a light and positive layer to the generally very serious and emotional factual hospital series.’
