Fox Orders Dating Reality Series From Mark Burnett, MGM Television

Fox has given a 10-episode order to an untitled dating reality series produced by Mark Burnett and MGM Television.

The series will be shot in the Caribbean. The premise revolves around a group of men and women who are matched up based on “instant chemistry” and then followed to see if they are actually compatible.

The sale comes on the heels of Mark Burnett taking the reins of MGM Television as president, following MGM’s buyout of his United Artists Media Group venture last month. But the Fox series deal indicates that he intends to remain a hands-on producer on selected projects.

“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.”

The project also marks Burnett’s first dating reality show. He co-created the series with Ben Newmark, Dan Newmark and Larry Barron for MGM and Grandma’s House Entertainment. The foursome also serve as exec producers.

MGM will handle international distribution as well. There’s no word yet on a target premiere date.

Burnett’s other active series roster includes NBC’s “The Voice” and “Celebrity Apprentice,” CBS’ “Survivor,” ABC’s “Shark Tank,” “Beyond the Tank” and “500 Questions.”

News of the Fox deal was first reported by Deadline.
