Samson Kayo stars as Maleek, a maverick London paramedic and tough-acting loner with a god complex and an unpopular vlog. When his regular partner departs, he's forced to work with happy-go-lucky, over-friendly northern divorcee Wendy.

Their partnership looks dead on arrival. But pretty soon they're giving each other life support. An ensemble comedy, set within the fast-paced, never-ending rush of 999 call outs, Bloods charts Maleek and Wendy's struggle to gain the respect of their fellow paramedics.
