The One That Got Away hails from Amazon Studios and Fulwell 73. Per the official logline: “It may seem like an impossible feat to track down The One That Got Away, but for these lucky singles, that dream becomes a reality. In this time-traveling, experimental dating series hosted by pop-icon, singer/songwriter Betty Who, six people searching for their soulmates are given the chance to explore a lifetime of missed connections as one by one, people from their pasts enter through “The Portal” to surprise them and take their shot at love.”
Elan Gale (FBoy Island, The Bachelor franchise) serves as executive producer and showrunner. Gabe Turner (The Late Late Show with James Corden, Jonas Family Roast) and Caroline Roseman (Ex on the Beach, An Audience with Adele) also serve as executive producers for Fulwell 73.
Forever Summer: Hamptons is a coming-of-age docusoap, set against the idyllic backdrop of the Hamptons, about a group of college kids from widely different backgrounds, from wealthy New York City kids who descend for the summer, to the humble townies. By day, they’re working at a seaside restaurant. By night, they are tearing up the town, testing friendships, and exploring love during the hottest days of the year. This group and their friends are chasing the perfect summer at a pivotal time in their lives, when carefree adolescence is about to end. Come September, the stakes and responsibilities will be high, but the summer is theirs for the taking.
Forever Summer: Hamptons is produced by Amazon Studios and Haymaker East. The series is executive produced by Lynne Spillman (Making The Cut, Survivor), along with Aaron Rothman, Josh Halpert, and Jesse Light for Haymaker East (Southern Charm, Camp Getaway), Jessica Chesler (Southern Charm, Ladies of London), and Morgan Miller (Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles).
Cosmic Love is described as a one-of-a-kind social experiment in which four individuals attempt to find their perfect spouse via astrological matchmaking. Their romantic adventure takes place at a retreat run by a mystical guide, the Astro Chamber. They mingle, match, date, eliminate, and eventually make the biggest decision of their lives… will they marry their match, based solely on their astrology?
The show’s astrologers, best-selling authors Ophira and Tali Edut (The AstroTwins), guide the singles throughout the season by way of the mysterious Astro Chamber (voiced by Cree Summer).
Cosmic Love is produced by Amazon Studios and Hudsun Media. Jess Castro (Love Island, American Idol) serves as showrunner and executive producer for the series. Michael Rourke (House of DVF, The Toy Box) for Hudsun Media, Hashim Williams (Barbershop Medicine, The Bachelor franchise), and Nathan Coyle also executive produce, along with Viki Cacciatore (Running Wild with Bear Grylls, American Ninja Warrior).
As previously announced, Cosmic Love, will also have a localized version filmed in France.
“We’re excited to introduce a new slate of addictive, entertaining reality programming that celebrates love and relationships in all forms,” said Vernon Sanders, head of global television, Amazon Studios. “Through past connections and astrology, The One That Got Away and Cosmic Love are dating shows that give audiences unique and fresh takes on finding the perfect match. Forever Summer: Hamptons gives us a classic, dramatic reality show in an idyllic place with a cast that’s not afraid of confrontation. These shows are amazing additions to our unscripted slate and will make Prime Video the destination for juicy, escapist summer content.”
