Global Agency today announced that they have acquired the international distribution rights to the innovative dating format “Eye Love You”.

‘Eye Love You’ is a 60 minutes dating show created by Effervescence. The concept is simple: without ever seeing each other, four hopeful suitors share their daily lives with a bachelorette, thanks to special connected glasses. The four young suitors are already familiar with the bachelorette’s profile and have decided to compete to win her heart. She does not know what they look like and has to base her dating selection on seeing their world through their eyes. Who will she choose to meet in person? The new world of dating has become more technical and ‘Eye Love You’ will illustrate how new technologies will help to find love beyond pure physical attraction.

The show has been already launched at MIPCOM 2016 by its creator Effervescence and was one of the most - talked about formats of the market. Eye Love You is already airing on ATV, Turkey under the title ‘Gözüm Sende’. The series has been renewed and 27 weekly episodes have already been broadcast to this date with excellent ratings. It has also been optioned in the United States.

Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said: “As Global Agency, we are thrilled to be the international distributor of ‘Eye Love You’ and I would like to thank Effervescence for choosing us as their partner on the show. With its unique and attractive concept, the format has been one of the projects that we have been searching for. We are now happy to offer it in our innovative catalogue. About the show, I can say that virtual dating has never been so real!”

Simone Harari Baulieu, CEO of Effervescence, added: “Everybody loves to be a fly on the wall and watch the interactions of young people’s dating. The format uses sophisticated technology to mimic this new world of dating. It also focuses on the elements that makes an initial relationship work beyond physical attraction. We are confident that Global Agency has understood our creative approach and are glad that they will help us to bring this show successfully to worldwide audiences”.
