Passion Distribution picks new dating format Love in the Flesh

Passion Distribution has secured international distribution rights for brand new BBC Three series Love In The Flesh.

At a time when more relationships develop and exist online than ever before, BBC Three's new format Love in the Flesh explores what happens when couples finally meet face to face.

The 8 x 45 series, produced by Ten66 Television for BBC Three, focuses on real-life potential couples who have already formed relationships via dating apps and social media but who have never met each other in the real world. These online daters will be whisked away from the pressures of daily life and screens to explore whether their online relationships can turn into love in the flesh.

None of them have met due to personal situations or factors like location so they will meet each other for the first time at a beach house and finally get the opportunity to spend proper time together. This is where they begin to find out what the person they’ve been chatting to all this time is really like and whether this is a relationship they want to take back into the real world.

As with all relationships, some will work and some won’t. If online couples do decide to split, there are opportunities to form new relationships and to compare the chemistry of online versus real world connections.

Throughout the series, the couples learn from each other, take on challenges to explore different sides of their relationship and discuss the differences in their dating behaviour when there are no filters and no screens to hide behind. Host Zara McDermott is there as a confidante and a guide and the series will also unpick wider themes relating to dating and the benefits or pitfalls when it comes to trying to make connections online or in person.
