Netflix Bolsters U.K. Unscripted Slate


Netflix has unveiled three new reality and entertainment series from the U.K. for its unscripted slate.

The lineup includes Dance Monsters, a new dance competition that uses VFX, live motion capture and facial recognition to enable competitors to transform into “dance monsters” to bust moves like nobody’s watching in front of a panel of judges and a live studio audience. Recorded in Hampshire, U.K., the series is produced by Lime Pictures.

Snowflake Mountain puts a group of childish young adults through their paces in a wilderness camp, where they get a rude awakening as to just how pampered their lives have been so far. A cash prize is up for grabs for the lucky winner as they learn to graduate as fully functioning adults. The series is filmed in the Lake District and produced by Naked.

The dating series Dated and Related follows pairs of siblings as they witness each other’s love lives up close and personal and search for “the one” together. Filmed in France with an international cast, the show is produced by the All3Media labels Great Scott Media and Main Event Media.

Netflix has also confirmed that Too Hot to Handle has been renewed for a third season that will launch early in the new year.
