Pink International's television production, "Love, Habit, Panic', has received a nomination for Best Sitcom in the 2006 Rose d'Or competition.
Mr. Zeljko Mitrovic, Pink International’s President and CEO, commented:
"We are very honored that “Love, Habit, Panic” has been recognized by the Rose d’Or jury. At Pink, we are striving to produce programming which viewers can both relate to and be entertained by. Although produced in Serbia, the situational and thematic issues of "Love, Habit, Panic" are not specific to Serbia only. The sitcom portrays a 'slice-of-life' with a touch of humor that resonates with viewers inside and outside the country. The Rose d’Or nomination serves as a positive incentive for us to produce more original television entertainment programming here in Serbia."
The 46 th Annual Rose d'Or will be held in Lucerne ( Switzerland), April 25-30, 2006. Awards will be presented at the gala dinner on April 29. "Love, Habit, Panic" has been nominated along with ten other programs in the Best Sitcom category: five nominees are from the United Kingdom, two nominees from Germany and one nominee each from Slovenia, Sweden and the United States.
