HBO Max is looking for love in its latest reality order – the zeitgeist-y titled Fboy Island.
Comedian Nikki Glaser is hosting the ten-part reality series, which comes from Elan Gale, former exec producer on The Bachelor and Sam Dean, who was showrunner of Netflix’s Love Is Blind.
The dating format follows three women who move to a tropical island where they’re joined by 24 men – 12 self-proclaimed “Nice Guys” looking for love, and 12 self-proclaimed “FBoys,” there to compete for cold, hard cash (Ed note: Urban Dictionary defines a f*ck boy as someone who says “I’m bad at relationships” as if it’s an absolute truth).
The women will navigate the dating pool together with the hope of finding a lasting love connection. By the finale, all will be revealed – who is a Nice Guy, who is an FBoy, and who do the women ultimately choose. Fboy Island is a social experiment that asks the age-old question: Can FBoys truly reform or do Nice Guys always finish last?
Created by Gale, Dean, who has an overall deal with the streamer, is showrunner of the series, which filmed earlier this year in the Cayman Islands, and will debut this summer. It comes from STXalternative. Gale, Dean, Glaser, Jason Goldberg and Ben Bitonti exec produce.
Nikki Glaser said, “When I first got the call to be a part of a reality dating show called Fboy Island, I said yes immediately. Then I realized they weren’t asking me to be one of the girls looking for love. That is not a joke; it was embarrassing. But as a massive fan of this genre, hosting this show was a true dream. I look forward to hosting for the next 43 seasons. I knew going into it that a show created and produced by the people behind my two favorite shows – The Bachelor and Love Is Blind – was going to be insanely good, but this one exceeded my expectations. I already know what happens and I can’t wait to watch it every week.”
“This is an incredibly entertaining dating show full of twists and turns that will leave the audience constantly guessing,” said Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family, HBO Max.
“We are especially excited for viewers to watch these strong women, guided by the hilarious Nikki Glaser, team together and empower each other to say ‘F-Boy, F-Bye,’” added Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max.
