Sky and pop culture brand E! Entertainment Television has acquired Seasons One and Two of Temptation Island from Banijay Rights, for the UK and Ireland. Hosted by Mark L. Walberg and produced by Banijay Studios North America, the hit US series will follow four dating couples who test the strength of their relationships as they move to an exotic island alongside a group of singletons in search of love. All episodes of Season One will be available from August 4th.
Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky, said: “Temptation Island is addictive and unmissable, and we can’t wait to launch it on Sky this summer. If you’re a fan of reality TV and entertainment, then this is your next must-watch show.”
“Revived, revamped, relaunched and now recommissioned, Temptation Island is the definitive ratings-busting reality series, which pushed USA Network’s slot average up by 68 per cent,” added Chris Stewart, Commercial Director, Scripted at Banijay Rights. “Putting couples to the ultimate test, the show provides equal parts drama and entertainment, and is sure to strike a chord with the reality-loving E! audience.”
