Netflix has commissioned the first ever local production of the global hit show Love is Blind, created and originally produced by Kinetic Content.
Love is Blind Brazil is set to premiere next year, featuring Brazilian singles who will find out whether looks or age do matter, or if love really is blind.
Kinetic’s original US production of Love is Blind has proved to be a global sensation for Netflix, since its February 13 launch. The 10-episode show was the Number One title on the service in multiple territories around the world including the United States, the UK, Germany, Brazil, Australia and Canada, and continues to rank in the Top Ten in most countries.
Netflix has already commissioned Kinetic Content to produce a further two seasons of Love is Blind USA.
In Love is Blind, singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, choose who they want to marry without ever having seen the other person. With no distractions from the outside world, such as social media, the singles talk to a stream of potential love interests, each one sitting in an individual pod. Only after the proposal they are allowed to lay eyes on their fiancé for the first time.
Los Angeles-based Kinetic Content creates and produces an array of non-scripted content for the global market, including Married at First Sight for Lifetime, which recently completed its high-rating tenth season, with Season Eleven coming soon; and spin-off show Married at First Sight: Couples’ Cam currently airing on the network; Lifetime’s number two and number three highest-rated series, the successful Little Women: Atlanta and Little Women: LA; the worldwide smash Seven Year Switch, with three seasons on Lifetime in the US, plus localized versions in territories around the globe; and Lifetime’s Bride & Prejudice: Forbidden Love, which launched its second season in February and has already spawned a hit localized version in Australia.
Kinetic’s output for other networks includes Friends Speak, which has been the highest-rated program on Reelz for each of the past two years; Discovery’s much buzzed-about Man vs. Bear; and Bravo’s Spy Games.
