Revived Love Island to head ITV Studios slate

Love IslandITV Studios Global Entertainment is launching nine formats in Cannes.

These comprise a rebooted Love Island, audience participation show Pick Me, game show 5 Star Family Reunion, medical studio series Emergency Room, cooking contest BBQ Champ, stripped event format Dream Day, property game show Guess This House, garden transformation series The Instant Gardener and campsite-based Hello Campers.

Love Island, from ITV Studios, first ran on ITV for to seasons between 2005 and 2006, but was revived this year on ITV2. It will lead the slate along with Pick Me, which comes from ITV Studios-owned Possessed.

Pick Me sees audience members make as much noise as possible to be picked to play a game in which they must convince the picker they hold a prize.

“We’re launching a variety of new formats at MIPCOM, originating from a number of creative producers and countries,” said Mike Beale, executive VP of global development and formats for ITV Studios.

“Ranging from the world’s first live daily reality dating show in Love Island to Pick Me, a fun game show in the style of game show classics from the 1980s, there’s something for everyone on our slate for this market.”
