Belgium punches way above its weight when it comes to creative output in the scripted space according to Walter Iuzzolino, the titular Walter in Walter Presents. He praises Belgian creators for consistently producing series of outstanding artistic and commercial calibre. These successes did not go unnoticed in the Czech Republic either. TV Nova remade original Belgian series Professor T about the eccentric but brilliant criminology professor who is an advisor to the federal police with Pavel Řezníček in the leading role in 2018. Now, Czech public broadcaster has shown interest in remaking another Belgian title – tragicomical series based on a true story Sense of Tumour about a successful med school student who discovers that he has a tumour in his head and is struggling with his new life path.
