NBC has given a cast-contingent series order to “The Weight for Love,” putting a new twist on the weight-loss competition by focusing on couples, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The story reports: “The series is based on an original format, with each hourlong episode centering on overweight couples who commit to separate for a long period of time in order to regain their health. They then reunite in an emotional reveal.”
The network will hold four casting calls for the series, which comes from 5×5 Media and Warner Horizon Television.
Meanwhile, “The Biggest Loser” returns to NBC later this month for its 16th season. The show is now anchoring the network’s “Must-See TV” Thursday night schedule at 8 p.m., the report notes.
