Prime Video announces a new immersive dating show - sending a line-up of singles back to high school in a nostalgia-fuelled experiment
This brand new eight-part reality show will be produced by Studio Lambert and launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories
LONDON, UK, 27th August 2020 – Amazon Prime Video confirmed the greenlight of a brand new eight-part Amazon Original immersive reality dating show produced by Studio Lambert. This new UK Amazon Original series will launch exclusively on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.
Across the series, viewers will see a cast of grade-A unlucky-in-love Brits try to find ‘the one’ by going back to High School for a second time. The participants won’t just be going ‘back to school’ but entering the nostalgic picture-perfect world of 80s, 90s and 00s American High School movies to complete a search for love. There will be no swiping, ghosting or battling catfish. This quest for romance will be explored through a High School movie fantasy world where a diverse group of singletons, including individuals from across the LGBTQ+ spectrum, will be falling in and out of love with one another in unexpected ways. From taking a seat at the cafeteria, to homecoming, to cheer try-outs, this series creates a perfect backdrop for finding friendship, flirting and falling in love, all building up to an epic season finale with one couple being crowned prom royalty.
Get ready as term is about to start…
“We are thrilled to be bringing this brand-new format to Prime Video,” said Georgia Brown, Director of European Amazon Originals for Prime Video.
“The idea of finding love in the melting pot of an American High School is a pop cultural cornerstone,” said Tim Harcourt, Creative Director for Studio Lambert. “Every romantic singleton would love a chance to relive a cinematic version of their school days knowing what they know now and more importantly who they are now. Maybe this time the Jock might fall for the Captain of the Chess Club and the Cheerleader might fall for the Maths Geek.”
The series will be produced by Studio Lambert. The executive producer is Tim Harcourt (The Circle, Race Across the World and Tattoo Fixers). Further details including casting and launch date will be announced in due course.
This brand new series will join the thousands of TV shows and movies in the Prime Video catalogue, including UK produced Amazon Original series such as Good Omens, The Grand Tour, and All or Nothing: Manchester City, and award winning and critically acclaimed global Amazon Original series including Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Boys, Homecoming and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, all on Prime Video, which is available at no extra cost for Prime members.
