Netflix is known for its diverse collection of content which it caters to the worldwide audience. Among the well-acclaimed web series and originals, they forayed into producing two reality TV dating shows like Love is Blind and Too Hot to Handle.

The first season will have 8 episodes with each one hour long and will come via IPC Television.
