“Bloods” follows their improbable pair as paramedic partners Wendy and Malek sideline South London and drift into crisis after crisis. The comedy series revolves around two central paramedics and their witty ambulance station colleagues, who focus on the humorous sides of their jobs even as they go to save lives. The show has the right amount of dark humor, making it feel authentic while keeping the story entertaining and funny.
Is Bloods Based on a Real Story?
No, ‘Bloods‘ is not based on a real story. The show was created by lead star Samson Kayo as a Sky comedy short in 2018, starring himself and Jane Horrocks in the lead roles. The original 10-minute short is focused on the most exciting paramedic – *** – YouTuber (Kyo) and his witty new partner (Horox) and was not initially thought of as a series.
However, Kayo has heard that it could be turned into its short series from its producer Ash Atala. The series hired a team of writers who devised ideas for five weeks before writing scripts by Paul Doolan and Nathan Bryan, who later co-wrote the short story.
Despite its fictional origins, the show “What if?” It also takes its central plot. The moment Cayo had. Before moving on to his acting and writing career, the lead actor was actually on his way to becoming an ambulance support driver. He also trained for it and is about to start running paramedics on 999 calls soon. He planned to become a paramedic until he “slowed down” in acting and decided to stay with it.
However, the idea of being a paramedic seems to have stalled with Kayo. So when Seb Barwell, the creator of “Bloods” first asked if he wanted to make a short, the comedian decided to go back and find out if he could continue as an assistant driver and eventually a paramedic.
The genre, ‘Bloods’, is, in a way, a fictional (and humorous) alternative reality that Kayo did not find acting. He was so engrossed in this role that he wandered around in an ambulance during the short filming. However, Kayo was disappointed to learn that he was not allowed the same freedom of driving during the filming of the series due to insurance obligations.
The actor-writer also explained how “Bloods” takes a humorous approach, but it is also important for them to demonstrate the seriousness of the work that emergency response paramedics are doing. In this way, we can see both sides of the characters in the series, making it a balanced combination of witty humor and “behind the scenes” paramedic stories that give a real-life based experience.
