About Chains of Love (TV series) in brief
Chains of Love is an American dating game show that aired for six episodes in April–May 2001 on the United Paramount Network. Adapted from a Dutch television series, it revolves around a man or woman being chained to four members of the opposite sex over four days and nights. In each episode, five contestants are taken to a house in Palos Verdes Estates, California, and bound together by a six-foot chain. The group includes a “Picker” and four potential suitors, referred to as “playmates” The Picker can choose to split the remaining cash with them if they feel that a “love connection” has been formed. The final contestant can refuse to be involved any further in a relationship. Media outlets have identified Chains of Love as part of a renaissance in reality television. The show has never been released on DVD or Blu-ray, or through online-streaming services. It was originally ordered by NBC, before UPN began producing it. The network envisioned the show as a companion piece to the simulated fugitive-chase series Manhunt.
NBC eventually decided not to pursue the series due to creative differences with producer Marc Peyser due to its premise. The Dutch company Endemol handled the production, and David Garfinkle acted as the executive producer. The series was also produced by people involved in the development of the reality game show franchise Big Brother. The New York Times’ Bill Carter interpreted the series as the second wave of reality shows that started from the success of the Survivor franchise. UPN has since produced three other reality television shows, including Neverland Now or Neverland Fear Factor, in place of the Dutch show. It has also produced the reality television show Fear Factor in the place of Fear Factor for the prime time slot of Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, and The Dating Game on Friday nights at 10:30 p.M. ET or 11:30p. ET on Saturday and Sunday nights at 9:00pm ET/9:30pm ET.
