ITV has commissioned new six-part medical drama, The Good Karma Hospital.

Set in the tropical paradise of Goa, The Good Karma Hospital is a contemporary drama with heart. Vibrant and colourful, the series follows a team of British and Indian medics as they cope with work, life and love at an over-worked and under-resourced cottage hospital.

Run by a gloriously eccentric Englishwoman, the “Good Karma” turns no one away – locals, ex-pats and tourists are all welcomed through its doors.

ITV’s Director of Drama Steve November, said: “Dan Sefton’s scripts are beautifully written and deal with themes we’ll all identify with – love, loss, relationships, family conflict, facing adversity and the importance of seizing the day. The Good Karma Hospital is a feel-good drama full of warmth and characters we will love.”

The Good Karma Hospital is created and written by Dan Sefton (The Five, Mr Selfridge) and produced by Tiger Aspect Drama (Peaky Blinders, Ripper Street).

The Good Karma Hospital will begin filming during 2016, with cast details yet to follow.
