Broadcaster WE tv has just given the green light to Ex Isle, a dating and relationship show set on a secluded, beautiful tropical island.

Couples are joined by show host Carmen Electra and guided on their emotional journey by Dr Ish Major, a psychiatrist specialising in women, children and families and an expert on broken relationships.

WE tv has ordered ten, one-hour episodes, which are currently in production, to join the network in 2016.

"Ex Isle is a concept that's completely untapped in the world of dating and relationship shows, but one that's familiar to so many of us," said Marc Juris, WE tv's president. "The couples featured will be given the tools and guidance to let go of the past and finally move towards building emotionally healthy and productive relationships. Viewers will witness a transformational journey that's captivating, entertaining and relevant."

Set in the Dominican Republic at the luxurious Casa de Campo Resort, five former couples will go through an intense and emotional journey led by Dr Major. With his help, the couples will go through a unique, multi-step process designed to help them break free from the past. Then, in an unexpected twist, ten singles will arrive at the resort, giving the exes a fresh chance. Along the way, show host Carmen Electra will share her own relationship stories

"This is probably one of the most relatable shows I have been a part of," said show creator and executive producer, SallyAnn Salsano. "We all have exes and have been these people. You feel their pain and heartbreak like it's your own; you root for them as they heal and find new love... it is an emotional rollercoaster and I don't want to miss a second."
