Nine Network offers ‘Gift’

Reaily show looks at transplant list

Nine Network is launching a new factual series, “The Gift,” which is a co-prod between Nine and FremantleMedia Australia.

Skein is a docu-style attempt to highlight the plight of organ transplants and donations, in contrast to the Dutch contest-reality series “The Big Donor Show,” which recently grabbed headlines and turned out to be a hoax.

Organizers say “The Gift” is an original format that will profile people waiting for transplants and look at those who perform these life savings operations. Skein is exec produced by Paul Franklin and will preem later this year.
