In a deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment, Canadian broadcaster CTV will have the exclusive, multi-platform rights to the U.S. version of Love Island,

Set at a beautiful tropical island, a group of single “Islanders” who are looking for love come together in a villa.

Audiences can shape what happens on screen as they watch the relationships develop, and ultimately crown one couple as the winners who take home a cash prize.

The multi-night series will anchor CTV’s 2019 summer schedule, which also includes The Amazing Race Canada, American Ninja Warrior, MasterChef, Hollywood Game Night and $100,000 Pyramid.

Executive producers for Love Island in the U.S. are David George, Adam Sher, David Eilenberg, Simon Thomas, Mandy Morris, Ben Thursby, Richard Foster, and Chet Fenster.

The Love Island format is owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group and distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

Love Island first premiered in the UK on ITV. Versions of the competitive dating series have also aired in Australia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
