The hottest new reality format in the world is coming to Australia with the Seven Network today announcing it has commissioned Stranded on Honeymoon Island, the big, new dating social experiment from the creators of the world’s No. 1 relationship show, Married at First Sight.
Premiering on Channel 7 and 7plus in 2024, Stranded on Honeymoon Island sees couples matched by experts following an extraordinary dating event, before being sensationally stranded on a deserted island in nothing but their wedding attire. Isolated and pitted against the forces of nature, can true love blossom and thrive or will surviving the elements push them apart?
Seven’s Chief Content Officer, Entertainment Programming, Angus Ross, said: “There is good reason broadcasters around the world have fallen in love with Stranded on Honeymoon Island and Seven is thrilled to bring this hot new series to Australian audiences.
“Snowman Productions and Endemol Shine Australia’s track record of success speaks for itself, and now they’re taking the reality dating genre to a whole new addictive level, blending fledgling love with the adventure of a lifetime. We have no doubt viewers will lap up every minute of this bold and exciting new format.”
Endemol Shine Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Newman, said: “Stranded On Honeymoon Island is a bold, fresh and filmic new relationship experiment with a dramatic and instantly compelling opening. The inspired fusion of the most powerful elements of the survival and relationship genres has created a raw, honest and utterly absorbing take on the search for love that Australian audiences will find completely irresistible!”
Managing Director of Red Arrow Studios International, Tim Gerhatz, said: “Stranded on Honeymoon Island is really creating a sensation among broadcasters around the world and we are absolutely delighted that the Seven Network has snapped up the show for Australia so soon after its successful launch in Belgium. We are sure that Seven’s viewers will love its heady combination of real-life experience and exotic escapism.”
Stranded on Honeymoon Island is created by Danish production company Snowman Productions and produced by Endemol Shine Australia for the Seven Network. Seven acquired the rights to Stranded on Honeymoon Island from Red Arrow Studios International, who distribute the format internationally. Snowman Productions and Red Arrow Studios International are part of Seven.One Studios.
Stranded on Honeymoon Island is already a huge hit in Belgium, delivering record ratings, with a number of other territory deals soon to be unveiled.
