FOX has ordered a brand-new version of Paradise Hotel, an unscripted competition series in which each guest tries to remain in paradise as long as possible.
The modernized version of the international hit is executive produced by 495 Productions’ SallyAnn Salsano (Jersey Shore Family Vacation, Jersey Shore, Floribama Shore, The Bachelor); Becca Walker (Love Island, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here); and Celia Taylor (50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy, A League of Your Own with James Corden, An Idiot Abroad) of Mentorn Media, the original creators of the Paradise Hotel format.
First aired on FOX in 2003, Paradise Hotel went on to become an international hit, produced in more than 18 countries around the world.
“Paradise Hotel was a show ahead of its time, and this incredible team of producers plan to take it to the next level,” said Rob Wade, president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Broadcasting Company. “The format allows for a delicious mix of love, drama and humor with a uniquely FOX twist. By using fresh interactive elements, it enables fans to orchestrate the show’s narrative, making it can’t-miss television for a new generation of viewers.”
“When love, power and money are the stakes, doing the right thing can sometimes take a back seat. Guessing who will do what’s right to find ‘the one,’ while others are focusing on the jackpot, makes this super exciting,” added Salsano. “This time around, viewers using their social media feedback to influence what happens on screen is a game-changer and will keep us all on edge.”
“To re-create, re-imagine and re-open the doors to Paradise Hotel again for a new generation is incredibly exciting,” said Taylor. “It remains a format ahead of its time that works perfectly in our digital world.”
