Love Island takes place in Fiji and starts with a group of single "Islanders," who live together in a stunning villa, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships and ultimately, relationships. Every few days, the Islanders must couple-up and those who fail to find a partner risk being dumped from the island.

Each Islander is on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn't always run smoothly.

Instead, the cast is constantly challenged with new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists that threaten to impact friendships and budding relationships. Not only will Islanders need to choose their partners wisely, but they've also got to win the hearts of viewers because it's YOU, the fans, who have the opportunity to shape events on-screen and ultimately pick one couple as the lucky winner of love and a cash prize.

"As the buzziest reality show in the U.K., Love Island has won the hearts of viewers across the pond as well as around the world, creating appointment viewing and fanfare for audiences everywhere. We are thrilled to bring our version of this cultural phenomenon to CBS," said Sharon Vuong, Senior Vice President of Alternative Programming at CBS. "This fun, light-hearted series is like watching your favorite romantic comedy five nights a week!"
