British lifestyle network ITVBe has ordered a series based on the Keshet Productions UK dating format When Do You Get Off?

The London-based arm of the Israeli producer/distributor is in pre-production on the 10 x one-hour series, which focuses on a single person who dates four people at their places of work.

The format was developed and created by Keshet UK and is being exec produced by head of UK formats Kevin Mundye and head of development Simon Shalgosky.

In the series, one person spends two days dating four people at their workplaces and then must pick the one they like best to meet up with when they get off work.

“Despite the old saying, ‘You should work to live, not live to work,’ the fact is most people are defined by the job they do and spend more time at work than anywhere else,” producers said in a statement. “So, what better way of to find out who someone really is, or show someone who you really are, than to invite them in to the workplace?”

ITVBe will air When Do You Get Off? later this year.
