Lifetime greenlights US version of Fremantle format Five Guys a Week

C4’s Five Guys a Week

A+E Networks-owned Lifetime in the US has greenlit three new series for 2022, including a remake of UK dating format Five Guys a Week.

Lifetime has made a 20×60′ order for the US remake of the Fremantle format produced for Channel 4 in the UK.

It sees a woman inviting five men she has selected to move into her actual home for a week, where she eliminates them one by one before making her final pick. Casting for the show is currently underway in the New York Tri-State area.

The US version is produced by Fremantle’s Original Productions and is executive produced by Brian Lovett, Jeff Hasler and Roy Orecchio for Original Productions, while Amy Winter and Shura Davison executive produces for Lifetime.

Lifetime has also ordered life-altering plastic surgery transformation series My Killer Body with K. Michelle, and the family docuseries Leave it to Geege, which comes from World of Wonder.

The former follows R&B chart topper Michelle help men and women desperate to reverse plastic surgery procedures that now threaten their lives.

It is produced by Jesse Collins Entertainment and Kingdom Reign Entertainment and executive produced by Kimberly Pate, Jesse Collins, Dionne Harmon, Carlos King, Scott Shatsky, Patrick McCabe, Brandon Wilson, Brie Miranda Bryant and Kimberly Chessler.

Leave it to Geege follows Geege Taylor, an Atlanta-area single mother of two who is twice-divorced, a breast cancer survivor and is also an advocate for autism acceptance.

It tracks the ups and downs of raising an autistic child following her first-hand experience with her non-verbal 19-year-old son.

It is executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Samantha Hartzband, Lynsey Dufour, Brie Miranda Bryant and Kimberly Chessler.

Amy Winter, executive VP and head of programming at Lifetime and LMN, said: “We know our audience wants to exhale at the end of a long day and these are three great series that deliver on Lifetime’s legacy of escapist entertainment, whether it’s laughing along with Geege and her unforgettable family, going along for the ride as romance unfolds with Five Guys, or watching someone rebuild their confidence with My Killer Body with K. Michelle.”
