A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE NEW ORIGINAL SERIES
ONLINE COUPLES SHACK UP ON A DESERTED ISLAND TO TEST THEIR OFFLINE RELATIONSHIP
SEVEN ONE-HOUR EPISODES PREMIERE SEPTEMBER 8, 2014 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY – August 11, 2014 – A&E Network premieres “Love Prison,” a new series that documents couples who are dating online, but have yet to meet in person. These couples have agreed to take their relationship to the next level and meet face-to-face while living in a house on a deserted island for one week. These couples will have plenty of time to get to know one another when they are stripped of their comforts, electronics and any distraction from one another. Will their carefully crafted cyber love become all too real or will they last the week and leave the island together? “Love Prison” premieres September 8th at 10PM ET/PT.
Each episode begins with an established online couple agreeing to test the strength of their connection in the “Love Prison.” Here, the couples are forced to get to know each other the hard way. This social experiment will test the validity of online compatibility versus real-life chemistry. They have zero access to technology and must spend 23-hours a day indoors. Surprise interruptions keep them on their toes, and just when things may be going well, video interviews about their past reveal secrets both good and bad.
After an emotional week, the couples will decide whether they will stay together or call off their online affairs for good. When their boat comes to pick them up, will they both leave together? Or will one be left behind?
“Love Prison” is produced by Leftfield Pictures for A&E Networks. Executive producers for Leftfield are Brent Montgomery, David George, Jordana Hochman. Jason Hollis and Eliza Clark serve as co-executive producers for Leftfield. Drew Tappon, Shelly Tatro and Devon Graham serve as Executive producers for A&E.
