Fox has ordered 10 episodes of a reality dating series from veteran “Survivor” and “Shark Tank” producer Mark Burnett, the network announced Thursday.

“I am so happy to be making my first dating series with Fox,” said Burnett in a statement. “It’s a genre that attracts a wide audience and our series gives a very fresh perspective that mirrors real life.”

The untitled series is set to air later in 2016.

The dating series will be set in the Caribbean and will take the instant “yes or no” connection of modern digital romance to the next level. Single men and women will match up based on their instant chemistry, but the real soap opera will unfold when these budding couples discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last.

MGM Television and Grandma’s House Entertainment will produce. The series is created and executive produced by Burnett, Ben Newmark, Dan Newmark and Larry Barron. MGM will be the worldwide distributor of the series outside of the U.S. and Canada.
