By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 7/16/2012 10:04:00 AM
The six-part series follows the crew of Hawaii Life Flight, the air ambulatory service for the Hawaiian islands, as they make life-saving medical calls, rescues and transfers in dramatic weather conditions.
"Hawaii looks like paradise to most people, but this series will show viewers an entirely different side to island life," said Michael Dingley, senior vice president, content and development for The Weather Channel. "When you have a medical emergency on a remote tropical island, the last thing you need is weather getting in the way of your care. Hawaii Air Rescue shows how this brave crew manages to save lives and battle the elements in the process."
The first of its six 30-minute episodes will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET. Hawaii Air Rescue joins a growing lineup of originals at The Weather Channel which already includes Coast Guard Alaska, Iron Men, Lifeguard!, Ice Pilots, Hurricane Hunters and Coast Guard Florida.
Hawaii Air Rescue is produced by Zero Point Zero Productions (Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations).
