If there's one thing Netflix is good at, it's creating 'out there' dating reality shows.

Their latest show, Dated and Related, follows siblings looking for love.

"Imagine being swept away to a luxury villa in the South of France. You are there to find love in the most romantic country in the world with other gorgeous singles", says host Melinda Berry from Too Hot to Handle S2, in the trailer for the show.

"Oh, I did not mention the catch", she continues, "you'll be joined by your brother or sister."


"In this brand-new reality dating series, pairs of siblings will be seeing each other's love life up close and personal as they search for 'the one' together," reads the official synopsis.

"Having the person who knows you better than anyone should help you navigate the tricky world of dating. But will they act as the ultimate wingman and help you find love? Or scupper your plans and call you out on all your bullshit? Either way, it might just be Awkward. As. Hell."

The series releases on Friday, 2 September.
