A+E Networks has picked up the reality format Married at First Sight (pictured) from distributor Red Arrow International.

In a straight-to-series deal, Kinetic Content will produce a 10 x one-hour season of the series that will begin airing later this year on one of the cable giant’s channels.

Originally created by Snowman Productions for Denmark’s DR3, the format matches six singles with total strangers through a process involving scientific, anthropological and religious analysis. The couples marry and after six weeks, decide whether or not to divorce or stay together.

Red Arrow has sold the format to more than 15 countries, including France, Sweden, Finland, Germany and Australia.
