Love Island, the smash hit British reality dating competition, is “on the verge” of cracking on into the United States and a number of other major markets – fresh from its latest finale scoring record breaking ratings for ITV2.
ITV America, the company behind Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot, which is run by CEO David George, is now targeting a U.S. version. A source close to the company told Deadline that the show is “on the verge” of being picked up for a remake. This comes after a deal was previously struck for a 20-episode order from MTV before the decision was overturned as a result of a management shakeup, a move that may ultimately help ITVS score a bigger deal.
