[via press release from NBC]


UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - April 15, 2011 - NBC today announced that its new adventure-dating series "Love in the Wild" will premiere on Wednesday, June 1 (10-11 p.m. ET).

"Love in the Wild" will put relationships to the ultimate test. Produced by Endemol USA and hosted by Darren McMullen (Australian "Minute to Win It"), 10 single men and 10 single women, all looking for love, will experience a romantic adventure unlike anything they could have ever imagined. These singles have tried it all - speed-dating, blind-dating, Internet dating -- and now, they're headed deep into the remote jungles of Costa Rica to see if they can find that special someone they've been looking for.

In each episode, the couples will pair up in exhilarating quests that will push their bodies and their emotions to the limit. Some of these include paddling down crocodile-ridden waters, navigating through bat-infested caves and hanging 200 feet above the rain forest floor as they descend down one of the most majestic waterfalls in Costa Rica.

After each adventure, the winning couple will share a night together at the "Oasis," a lavish, five-star bungalow overflowing with everything they could possibly desire for an intimate night of romance. The remaining couples will stay with their partners in the less luxurious "Cabins," where they will gather for a night of socializing.

During an elimination unlike anything seen before, all of the couples will come together to reveal whether a connection has been formed with their current partner -- or if they would like to switch and get to know someone else. At the end of every episode, two heartbroken singles will be sent home.

The series will culminate with just one couple left standing, who will have completed the adventure of a lifetime and found the one thing they've been searching for -- "Love in the Wild."

McMullen, who also currently serves as the host for the Australian version of "Minute to Win It," began his career in front of the camera as host of "Ignition," a monthly car show in Sydney, Australia. His additional hosting credits include "Exclusive," from Australia's Arena TV; "The Lair," MTV's live music show; and "Fan vs. Band," a program that he helped to write and develop for MTV.

"Love in the Wild" is produced by Endemol USA. Tom Shelly serves as executive producer. Liz Schulze, Eric Gardner and Mark Allen are co-executive producers.
