UK broadcaster Channel 5 has commissioned the familial competition series Stripped and Stranded from FremantleMedia-owned producer Naked Entertainment.

The 4 x 60-minute fact-ent series will feature households with “high-octane family drama” as they’re marooned on a deserted tropical island off the coast of Panama, relying on each other for support and survival.

Each episode is slated to focus on a different family along with a new set of challenges and opportunities to determine whether each clan, entrenched in conflict, can rise to the challenge and use the adventure to reclaim tattered relationships.

With filming currently underway, the series is expected to debut across Britain this fall.

Naked Entertainment’s Simon Andreae and Mike Warner serve as executive producers on the series that was commissioned by Channel 5′s factual commissioner Guy Davies.

Stripped and Stranded is a prime example of what we want to be known for: bold, original programming that is simple to grasp but also broad, relatable, and emotionally resonant,” said Naked Entertainment CEO Simon Andreae in a statement. “Everyone knows how delicate and complex families can be, but it’s not often you get the chance to see what happens when a family who claim they can’t live with each other suddenly discovers they can’t survive without each other.”
