CBS partnered with production company ITV to bring the hit show to America. The network is already responsible for several popular reality shows like Big Brother (which also has a British sister), Survivor and The Amazing Race. CBS’ head of alternative programming Sharon Vuong was particularly excited about the partnership
“Love Island has been a massive success overseas,” said Vuong in 2019. “It’s currently seen, or about to premiere in several European countries as well as Australia, and we’re thrilled that ITV has partnered with us to bring their most successful show to American television. Having seen the reaction of audiences ‘across the pond’ and around the world to this most recent season, we expect American viewers will be captivated by this engaging format. Additionally, Love Island is more than a pop sensation; this series has generated compelling ‘sociological think pieces’ in major publications here and abroad.”
