The show was created by Iwona Karpiuk and Piotr Poraj Poleski and has been popular in Poland, and won a Pitch & Play Live award at MIPTV. The format has been renewed for a second season, airing next year.
Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said, 'Sanatorium of Love is the new entertaining program in our catalogue. We believe it will attract the attention of audiences in many countries. Due to increasing life expectancy, the percentage of elderly people rises every year. Lots of elderly people live alone. Of course, they want to pursue an active lifestyle. I think it is a good chance for them to start new relationships despite all the prejudices. These create the best elements for a high rated show. We have great confidence in this format'.
In Sanatorium of Love, six elderly ladies and six senior gentlemen who differ in character, personality, set off to a picturesque health resort in the mountains, where for three weeks they are given the opportunity to get to know one another and experience new adventures, also related to the sphere of feelings.
