ITV has commissioned a local version of Talpa format Dating in the Dark, which previously aired in the UK on pay TV channel Sky Living.
The UK broadcaster, which owns Talpa, has tapped another of its companies, UK firm Twofour, to produce the series (6×60′) and will air it on ITV2.
Dating in the Dark sees singletons looking for love take residence at a luxury mansion, with dates taking place in a pitch-black room.

“How will a new generation of young viewers and daters react to this classic looks-versus-personality dilemma? For an Instagram generation, the question is perhaps more interesting than ever,” said Satmohan Panesar, ITV’s factual commissioner.

Dating in the Dark has been sold to more than 20 territories, including the US and Australia, and aired in the UK on Sky Living between 2009 and 2011.
