Eight-part dating format on latest originals slate from NBCU streamer

BBC Studios LA and Dear NHS Superstars indie Mighty Productions have combined for an eight-part Peacock dating format as part of the NBC Universal SVoD’s latest slate.

The pair are behind the Andy Cohen-fronted Ex Rated, a social experiment that will see singletons receive standardised ‘exit surveys’ from former partners to learn why their relationships never materialised or simply didn’t last.

Available on the platform from next month, singles of all ages and backgrounds will be given raw, unfiltered feedback on everything from personality to sexual prowess.

Cohen (Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen) is also exec producing alongside showrunner Eric Pankowski, BBCS’ Ryan O’Dowd and Mighty’s Hugh Rycroft and Lynn Sutcliffe.

The show is the only one on the Peacock slate to feature a UK indie, but joins Heyday Television’s BBC1 series The Capture and Expectation’s Sky comedy Intelligence as other British originals on the service.

The slate also features an untitled Craig Robinson (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Office) project, Lorne Michaels ensemble comedy Bust Down, Michael Phelps: Medals, Memories and More and six-part true-crime doc John Wayne Gacy: Devil in Disguise.

A Real Housewives of Miami format is in development.

NBCU streamer Peacock launched last summer in the US with originals including reboots of classic comedies Saved by the Bell and Punky Brewster.
