Bravo Media has ordered a new half-hour unscripted series The People’s Couch, where it will turn the cameras on avid TV watchers.
Based on the U.K. show Gogglebox, the three-episode limited series will feature the same households watching and commenting on popular TV shows from the last week in their homes. People’s Couch will premiere on Sunday Oct. 6, Oct. 13 and Oct. 20 at 11:30 p.m.
“The People’s Couch is a funny, unfiltered comment on America’s current TV viewing habits,” said Lara Spotts, VP of development, Bravo. “Continuing Bravo’s tradition of serving up pop culture in fresh, new ways, this series taps into everyone’s desire to know what others think about the shows they are watching.”
The series is produced by Studio Lambert and All3Media America. Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Tania Alexander and Aliyah Silverstein are executive producers.
