BBC Three is setting their sights on the Love Island audience with similarly themed series Croatia 2017: The Brits Are Coming.
Croatia 2017 follows young Brits as they embark on the holiday of a lifetime in the increasingly popular party destination. The series promises “British banter”, unexpected holiday drama and maybe even some summer romances.
Some of the characters that will feature in Croatia 2017 include young DJs heading out for their first Croatian DJ set, to a young girl on her first foreign holiday, and an army lad who has spent the last two months living with his parents to save up and many more set to visit the island.
BBC Three Controller Damian Kavanaugh promised that the project would feature a multi-media approach and will “utilise all of BBC Three’s platforms with tailored content across each one”. “This will be an authentic series of films exploring the real lives of young people today and will build on the innovative approach BBC Three has to documentary storytelling”, he added.
