Written by Katarzyna Grynienko

WARSAW: Private broadcaster Polsat has commisioned a new series, Life Line (Linia Życia), based on a popular Italian format. The series will be aired daily as Polsat's main evening series.

The shoot for the new show started on 20 of January in Sopot. The producer of the series is Akson Studio (www.akson-studio.pl) headed by Michał Kwieciński. The series evolves around the daily lives of four families living in Sopot. The cast includes Beata Ścibakówna, Tomasz Ciachorowski, Katarzyna Maciąg, Magdalena Różczka, Jan Monczka, Radosław Pazura, Małgorzata Potocka and Anna Samusionek. Life Line is based on the Italian series Vivere, created by Marco Amato and produced by Italian company Aran.

The series will premiere on Polsat (www.polsat.pl) in the spring of 2011 and will replace a long time favorite of the Polish viewers, a drama titled Colors Of Happiness (Barwy Szczęścia), which has aired on the station since 2007.
