Mark Burnett's new dating show is Tinder IRL
Reality TV hitmaker Mark Burnett is launching a dating show. Fox has greenlit a new series from the Emmy-winning producer of The Voice and Survivor that has a format inspired by online dating apps.
Here’s the pitch: “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.”
We’re told that the show will mirror Tinder in that each couple is paired based on a very quick first impression, but the singles do meet IRL.

“I am so happy to be making my first dating series with Fox,” Burnett said. “It’s a genre that attracts a wide audience and our series gives a very fresh perspective that mirrors real life.”
That’s all the available information for now. Further details will be announced at a later date.
