E! Entertainment Television UK & Ireland, NBCUniversal International Networks’ pop culture channel, has commissioned a ten-part reality dating series entitled The Bi Life, for the UK and Ireland markets.
The show, produced by NBCUniversal International Studios’ Monkey, will focus on bisexual dating and will see a group of bisexual+ (bi, pansexual, fluid, etc.) or questioning British singletons sent on an adventure to find love abroad.
Fronted by Celebrity Big Brother 2018 winner, Shane Jenek (also known as Courtney Act), The Bi Life will be set in Barcelona. The cast will live together, party together and “help each other navigate the rocky road of bisexual+ dating as they observe and feedback on each other’s experiences.”
Executive Producers for Monkey are Ros Coward and David Granger and the series producer is Sarah Church.
“This new commission is a pivotal point for E! Entertainment Television in the UK as we bring a fresh take on the full diversity of modern British relationships,” commented Lee Raftery, Managing Director UK & Emerging Markets and Chief Marketing & Content Officer, NBCUniversal International. “With the number of British people identifying themselves as bisexual rising by 73% in four years*, we are incredibly excited to be introducing this pioneering series to our audiences in the UK and Ireland.
Ros Coward, Monkey, Executive Producer said: “A TV show that better reflects diversity within society’s dating pool has been long overdue. The Bi Life is a modern dating show for a modern generation of daters and E! is the perfect home for it.”
