Hosted by Andy Cohen, the revival of the iconic syndicated show hails from Mike Fleiss, the executive producer of ABC hit dating series and his Next Entertainment.

The series is a co-production between original producers Telepictures Productions and Warner Horizon Television, with the latter company most recently having the rights to the property.

The untitled project, co-created and executive produced by Burnett, marks the first dating series for the prolific reality producer behind such hits like The series, which has received a 10-episode order, puts the notion of instant attraction to the test.

Set in the Caribbean Islands, it features single men and women.

The show remained on the air in repeats through 1995 before it was relaunched in 1998 with Pat Bullard hosting.

" was always one of my favorite programs,” Fleiss said.

“It’s just this incredible confluence of incredible talent and a great format and a concept that happens to be perfect for me,” Cohen says, admitting that hosting a shiny-floor game show has been a “fantasy” of his.

Fox is following ABC’s lead by rebooting nostalgic game shows, ordering 15 episodes of Love Connection.

“Love Connection” shot over a period of about one week, bringing the New York-based Cohen to Los Angeles to do what he does best: prod into people’s personal lives.

“I’ve always wanted to host a game show and this is the perfect one for me because it mixes what I already do, which is ask really personal questions,” says the television-executive-turned-celebrity, who used to head development at Bravo.

“It capitalizes on everything that I love to do — digging for personal details is something that I started doing with the Housewives many years ago.” Funny enough, Cohen says when he was in charge of programming at the NBCUniversal cabler, he tried to nab the “Love Connection” format for the net with plans for someone else to host, since he was in the midst of his executive days.

After face-to-face meetings, a participant picks a mate based on instant chemistry.

“The real soap opera will unfold when these budding couples discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last,” Fox says.
