Peacock invests in unscripted, returns ‘Love Island USA’ & ‘Queens Court’

Love Island USA

NBCUniversal-owned streamer Peacock is returning two of its unscripted series and has set a premiere date for its football-related reality series, Love Undercover.

The show follows five international players who arrive in the US and leave their lives behind them to date single women who don’t know of their fame overseas.

The 10-episode show is being produced by Beyond Media and is being shot in LA, with the episodes set to drop in three batches from 9 May.

Peacock has also ordered a sixth season of ITV Studios-owned format Love Island, which is set to debut in the summer on the streamer.

The format moved to Peacock from linear service CBS in 2022, with the streamer placing a two season order – the second of which launched in 2023.

The show, which ran for three seasons on CBS, is produced by ITV Entertainment and based on the UK format owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group.

It joins Queens Court, which has been extended into a second season and follows three celebrities as they attempt to find a partner by dating 22 confident, successful men.

It is being produced by US firms Lighthearted Entertainment and Will Packer Entertainment.

In related news, NBC has ordered Grosse Pointe Garden Society from its sibling production arm Universal Television and Minnesota Logging Company. The story follows members of a suburban gardening club who find themselves embroiled in a murder.
