Fremantle will adapt the present for Discovery and it’ll premiere subsequent yr. It follows the likes of CBS within the U.S. remaking the BAFTA-winning courting format, wherein singletons pair up in a sun-drenched villa.
Maarten Meijs, president international leisure at ITV Studios, mentioned: “Following one other profitable season within the U.S. and just lately introduced new commissions in Nigeria to Spain, Love Island efficiently travels the world at a quick tempo.
“There’s a excessive demand for this format, evidenced by already four new commissions this yr. We stay up for working with Discovery as we have now already seen that the present works equally nicely throughout linear, digital and catch-up platforms.”
The deal was brokered by Laura Rhodarmer, SVP licensing international leisure at ITV Studios.
