Everyone’s talking about…the American version of Love Island

CBS have secured the US rights to the hit UK reality TV show – Love Island.

Commenting on the news, Sharon Vuong, Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming for the Network, insisted the show is more than just a ‘pop sensation’.

This series has generated compelling ‘sociological think pieces’ in major publications here and abroad.

And she’s fairly certain that American audiences will eat it up.

Having seen the reaction of audiences ‘across the pond’ and around the world to this most recent season, we expect American viewers will be captivated by this engaging format.
