Per the network, Kicking & Screaming will drop these unlikely partners into a tropical jungle in Fiji, where they will face dangerous animals, raging rivers, hunger and extreme weather.
Produced by Pulse Creative’s Matt Kunitz, in association with Lionsgate Television, Kicking & Screaming is created by Matt Kunitz, David Shumsky, and Mark Harris. Kunitz and Anthony Dominici executive produce. Rebecca Shumsky Quinn developed the project and is a co-executive producer, along with Shumsky and Harris. The series is now in production, in Fiji.
Based on the UK format, “First Dates” explores the experience of a first date — the promise of potential love when it goes well and the hilariously awkward moments if it crashes and burns. The alternative series follows a variety of real first dates happening throughout one night at the same restaurant in Chicago. The daters are of all ages, backgrounds and from across the country. The audience will be along for the ride in a viewing experience that plays like a real-life romantic comedy and at the end of each episode, it will be revealed if participants want to see each other again for a second date.
