Executive producer Mark Burnett (The Voice, Survivor) is dipping his toes in the dating series pool with a new unscripted show coming to Fox later this year. The series doesn’t have a title yet, but it does have a 10 episode first season order from Fox. The untitled series was created by Burnett, Ben Newmark, Dan Newmark and Larry Barron, all of whom will serve as executive producers.

“I am so happy to be making my first dating series with FOX,” stated eight-time Emmy winner Burnett. “It’s a genre that attracts a wide audience and our series gives a very fresh perspective that mirrors real life.”

The Plot:

Set in the Caribbean Islands, the series will take the instant “yes or no” connection of modern digital romance to the next level. Single men and women will match up, based on their instant chemistry, but the real soap opera will unfold when these budding couples discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last. Further details will be announced at a later date.
