"They will share the joys and sorrows with each other. MALAIKA includes everything that a soap opera should have: drama, humor, emotions, romances and intrigues", says Paul Cormont, head of RTL5. "We still believe in this genre. GOEDE TIJDEN SLECHTE TIJDEN had around two million viewers last week."
MALAIKA is partially financed by health care organizations. They want a more positive image of health care at home. Cormont on the story lines: "There are also young people who are recovering from surgery or are in rehabilitation after an accident. We also include people receiving health care at home."
