Ross Kemp: Britain's Volunteer Army will see the actor, 55, meeting volunteers up and down the country who have put themselves forward to help the most vulnerable in society.
Sacrificing their own safety for the needs of others, Ross will chat to members of the public who are doing their bit to support the country, including those shopping for elderly neighbours and volunteers who've been busy stitching gowns and making face masks for the NHS.
The actor also meets members of the community who have been supporting elderly residents by simply picking up the phone for a chat, driving the vulnerable to their hospital appointments or, transporting recovered patients back home again.
Others have been supporting the NHS in delivering life-saving medical equipment to hospitals across the nation.
During each ep, Ross shines a light on all the different ways volunteers can help. Joining the heroic efforts of the country's 750,000 volunteers, the presenter gets stuck into some work himself, helping those within his local neighbourhood.
Ross says: "It makes me immensely proud to see the British public mobilising in their thousands to come to the assistance of the vulnerable in our society, and the NHS, in their time of need.
"This pandemic has produced all sorts of unlikely heroes and it will be a real privilege to meet some of them and celebrate their selfless work."
While there's currently no release date for Ross Kemp: Britain's Volunteer Army, it's expected to be coming to BBC One soon.
In the meantime, you can watch another of Ross' coronavirus documentaries on ITV Hub. Ross Kemp: On The NHS Frontline sees the actor spending time in a hospital in Milton Keynes, filming a documentary about the incredible NHS heroes working around the clock during the coronavirus pandemic.
During the programme, Ross speaks to members of staff at the hospital as well as following certain patients diagnosed with COVID-19.
The presenter and actor also spends time in the intensive care unit where he sees NHS staff working relentlessly to look after those in need.
If Ross' new series is anything like his NHS doc, it promises to be an eye-opening watch.
