Fox is close to a deal with "American Idol" producer FremantleMedia North America for a new show that’s based on a U.K. hit, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
The network is already casting for a version of the dating show "Take Me Out," which features a single man trying to impress 30 single women standing at lighted podiums, the story says. If they lose interest, the women switch off their lights. If the man survives and avoids a "blackout," the remaining women compete until only one is left, the story adds.
Fox is considering a summer debut, according to the piece. Both Fox and FremantleMedia declined to comment, the story adds.
