NBCUniversal streamer Peacock has ordered a new dating format from Endemol Shine North America (ESNA) that takes participants to the Regency era.

Pride & Prejudice: An Experiment In Romance will see contestants transported to Regency-style England, where a group of eligible suitors will attempt “to win the heart of the heroine and her court.”

The show is being produced by Banijay-owned ESNA, which developed and produced the format in association with sibling firm Shine TV.

The series takes place in an English castle on the countryside and will see participants taking part in activities from the era, such as carriage rides, boat rides and archery, while communicating via handwritten letters.

Anthony Dominici serves as executive producer with ESNA trio Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre, Michael Heyerman and Susy Price for Shine TV.
