The new shows comprise “a monstrous new VFX dance competition that gives talented budding dancers a chance to perform like no one’s watching, a reality series that puts a group of failure-to-launch youngsters through their paces in a wilderness camp, and a dating show with a seriously uncomfortable twist.”
Details of the three shows are below.
The streamer also updated on hit reality show Too Hot To Handle, revealing that the third season will launch early in the new year.
Ben Kelly, Manager, Unscripted Series, UK, and Daisy Lilley, Manager, Unscripted Series, UK, stated: “Over our past couple of years at Netflix, we have been thrilled by the ideas pitched to us from production companies in the UK; ideas that are fresh, thought-provoking and playful, a perfect combination for our unscripted slate. We look for series that have a unique take on a familiar concept and put innovative twists on shows that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, so that we can deliver something truly original.”
During the Edinburgh session Lilley described the kind of content the team is after: “Authenticity at their heart, warm, humorous, thought-provoking, quite optimistic…”
Kelly added: “We believe there is an amazing community of TV makers and developers in this country and we want to tap into that. We feel confident about the talent here. There is a history of TV makers in this country conditioned to make formats that really travel, that become global ideas, global hits, and that is the prize.”
