Distributed worldwide by Red Arrow Studios International, The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes was originally created and produced by CPL Productions, makers of ground-breaking, multi-award winning format Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, and Motion Content Group. The UK version, overseen by Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton, successfully aired on Channel 4 in June 2019.
In this extraordinary social experiment, a group of people all living with dementia, spanning different ages and at various stages of the disease, are tasked with helping run a restaurant led by a successful chef – in the Dutch version, Ron Blaauw.
Over a five-week period, and with a dementia expert on hand to advise, the group takes on all the roles of a busy restaurant, including cooking, taking orders, serving and making drinks.
Red Arrow Studios International has sold the format to a number of countries including the Netherlands and Belgium.
