Seven this week released a provocative promo clip for The Super Switch, a reworking of its Seven Year Switch format in which married couples swap partners (for some reason that still escapes me).
The clip appears to borrow heavily from Married at First Sight and shows sexual attraction, arguing, a brawl between two blokes, and a contestant calling the police for being “held against his will.” Lucky he wasn’t at The Voice recording…
The clip also shows participants in group situations, which could be purely as dining together but potentially throws them together under one roof for maximum conflict… this will become clearer as it unfolds.
“TV’s most controversial experiment” is originally based on a US format but the new variations may be local additions given the success of MAFS on Nine.
Can Seven leverage off Nine’s success or will viewers brand it a copycat? And how do you get away with swingers on TV in an early evening timeslot anyway?
An airdate is yet to be announced.
