NBC RE-SETS PREMIERE OF NEW ADVENTURE-DATING SERIES "LOVE IN THE WILD" FOR WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - May 26, 2011 - NBC announced that its new adventure-dating series "Love in the Wild" now will premiere on Wednesday, June 29 (10-11 p.m. ET). It previously was scheduled to debut on June 1 (10-11 p.m. ET).
"Love in the Wild" puts relationships to the ultimate test. 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. These exploits will put their relationships to the test as they fall for each other in ways they never imagined. Sparks will fly and hearts will break.
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."
"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.
