Instant divorce could be coming to a television near you. Fox has confirmed that they’ve made a pilot order at MIPCOM for a show that offers warring couples an immediate end to their marriage. Divorce Hotel sees A. Smith & Co. Productions partnering with BASE Productions on the concept. A. Smith & Co. are the producers of the successful Gordon Ramsay FOX shows Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares. Divorce Hotel is based on a Dutch business and was secured last year by BASE at MIPCOM for TV development. The idea is that an estranged husband and wife check into a luxury hotel for a weekend of lawyers, counseling and mediation in an attempt to streamline their final separation. Come Sunday, the couples that go through with it will leave as newly divorced singles. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Mickey Stern, and John Brenkus will be the executive producers on Divorce Hotel.
