Just what the world needs, another network reality show: NBC has hit the green light on a new show called Love in the Wild. Think Survivor meets the Bachelor.
The series puts singles looking for mates together in the wilderness to see which come together.
The Hollywood Reporter writes: “Twenty men and women will pair up each week in the middle of the jungle. Each couple is dropped into a remote location with nothing but a map and each other to rely on. Along the way they encounter as they’re put through challenges that test them emotionally and physically. At the end of the day, some of the couples will be treated to various romantic indulgences at a romantic oasis. After, they’ll have the choice of staying with their partner or switching for the next challenge.”
The eight-episode dating docu-drama is tentatively-scheduled to join NBC’s primetime lineup during the summer of 2011.
