Comedy pilot which follows mismatched paramedic duo Tom and Julie on their first, chaotic night shift together.

Tom is a junior doctor, currently suspended pending a malpractice inquiry and working as a paramedic while he fights to clear his name.

Julie is an experienced hand, with a dry wit and a sideline in adult sex toys and lingerie, which she sells from the back of the ambulance.

As well as his job, Tom is also in danger of losing his snooty fiancée Lucy. And to add insult to injury, he also has to fend off the advances of a stalker ex-patient Terrence - while Rob Krizzo, the scruffy, chaotic, lawyer who Tom hopes will clear his name turns out to be a complete liability.
