Netflix is ramping up its UK unscripted slate with three reality and entertainment series from producers Naked, Lime Pictures, Great Scott Media and Main Event Media.

First, Snowflake Mountain takes a group of “clueless kidults” to a wilderness survival retreat with no running water, no parents and no Wi-Fi, in an effort to help them become fully-functioning adults. The winner will receive a cash prize.

Filmed in North West England’s Lake District, the series features an international cast and is produced by Fremantle label Naked. Executive producers are Cal Turner and Jo Harcourt-Smith. Andy Cullen, Nick Walker and Cherry Sandhu are series producers.

Dance Monsters, meanwhile, is a large-scale dancing competition with a twist. Through VFX, live motion capture and facial recognition, competitors will transform into dance monsters that come to life in front of a panel of judges and a live studio audience.

Filmed in Hampshire, UK, Dance Monsters is produced by Lime Pictures. Executive producers are Sarah Tyekiff, Andrew Jackman and Tamsin Dodgson.

Finally, from All3Media labels Great Scott Media and Main Event Media comes Dated and Related.

The reality dating series, filmed in France with an international cast, sees pairs of siblings search for “the one” together.

Executive producers for Great Scott Media are Leon Wilson, Ed Sleeman and Saul Fearnley. For Main Event Media, Jimmy Fox is executive producer and Emily Bon is co-executive producer.

The streamer also confirmed plans to launch season three of its dating series Too Hot to Handle (pictured) early next year.

“Over our past couple of years at Netflix, we have been thrilled by the ideas pitched to us from production companies in the UK; ideas that are fresh, thought-provoking and playful, a perfect combination for our unscripted slate. We look for series that have a unique take on a familiar concept and put innovative twists on shows that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, so that we can deliver something truly original,” Ben Kelly and Daisy Lilley, managers of UK unscripted series, said in a blog post Tuesday (Aug. 24).
