Networks in Israel and Italy have ordered local versions of the dating format Hear Me. Love Me. See Me from FremantleMedia.
Israeli broadcaster Channel 10 has ordered a four x 60-minute run that will launch this summer, while Italy’s Fox Life has picked up a 10 x 60-minute season and set a June 29 premiere date.
Abot Hameiri is producing the Israeli version and FremantleMedia Italy is behind the Italian series.
In Hear Me. Love Me. See Me., a single woman is set up on three men who wear cameras to give the singleton a point-of-view look into a day in their lives. The singleton can switch between the three feeds and talk to the men in order to determine a match, but she cannot see their faces. At the end of the day, the three dates convene in a hotel room so she can select the winner.
FremantleMedia launched the format for international buyers at MIPTV in Cannes last month. “The format puts an entertaining and modern spin on the dating genre which results in a fun, authentic and very versatile series,” said Chris O’Dell, head of global entertainment production for FremantleMedia, in a statement.
