Talpa TV has licensed a version which will be produced for SBS6 in early 2020 by Concept Street. At the same time, in Belgium, Red Arrow Studios International has sold the format to production company Roses are Blue. The series was originally created and produced by Red Arrow Studio’s CPL Productions, with the U.K. version starring chef Josh Eggleton airing on Channel 4.
The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes sees a group of people living with dementia helping to run a restaurant over a five-week period. As the group cooks, takes orders, serves and makes drinks, celebrities and ordinary members of the public dine at the restaurant that’s led by an esteemed chef with a dementia expert on hand to advise.
Bo Stehmeier, president of Red Arrow Studios International said: 'As we see the demand for kinder, socially responsible and uplifting content continue to rise, we’re delighted to be building the presence of The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes in Europe. This timely show, which taps into wider national conversations surrounding how we think of people living with dementia, makes for poignant, heart-warming and distinctive viewing and we’re confident it will play a crucial role in challenging perceptions about this increasingly common condition'.
