The Temptation Island reboot
all some of us want may still be a distant dream, but Fox is getting back into the reality dating business — this time with powerhouse producer Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor).
The network announced Thursday that it has ordered 10 episodes of Burnett’s unscripted series that will “take the instant ‘yes or no’ connection of modern digital romance to the next level.”
The untitled project, set in the Caribbean Islands, will match up men and women on the basis of instant chemistry, then test whether such fleeting connections have legs (metaphorically, as it’s guaranteed the cast will be absolutely gam-tastic).
Further details will be announced at a later date, but the network plans to air the series this year.
“I am so happy to be making my first dating series with FOX,” Burnett said, in a release. “It’s a genre that attracts a wide audience and our series gives a very fresh perspective that mirrors real life.”
