NEP UK AND ITV CONTINUE THEIR TRUSTED PARTNERSHIP WITH BAFTA AWARD-WINNING LOVE ISLAND REALITY SERIES

NEP UK today announced it will continue its long-term partnership with ITV, providing the fixed rig and production gallery for the BAFTA TV award-winning series, Love Island. As ITV’s trusted partner since Love Island’s inception in 2015, NEP UK will capture and deliver the upcoming fourth season in Mallorca.

As Love Island evolves each year, NEP UK has refined its talented team and adapted the equipment used to ensure it can meet ITV’s changing requirements. For example, it has created a tailored technology package with a bespoke camera control system that has been adapted for each season. Jason Spencer, Commercial and Technical Project Manager at NEP UK, adds, “At NEP, we listen to our clients and adapt our technology solutions accordingly to their needs. But, we also proactively take our existing technology knowledge and extensive experience to create new and original ideas.”

Since season one, NEP UK has successfully captured and delivered six weeks of transmissions each year and will continue to do so for the next few series. “Jason and I have worked with ITV’s Love Island team since its conception,” comments Mick Bass, Commercial Director at NEP UK. “We have seen each season through from start to finish including first contact and technical briefs to daily transmissions and the final live episode. This method of working is unique to NEP—an approach that has helped us maintain and strengthen our established relationship with ITV, and one of the reasons our clients keep coming back”.

Following a notable season last year, with 3 million people watching the Love Island finale, NEP UK supported ITV’s latest reality TV series entitled Survival of the Fittest. This programme premiered in February 2018; NEP UK provided technical expertise, fixed rigs and the production gallery in South Africa. NEP UK has also recently been contracted to work with ITV for Love Island Australia. The upcoming Australian dating reality show will be based on the British series and will air in Summer 2018, another testament to NEP UK’s experience of providing leading engineering solutions for fast turnaround reality shows as part of the NEP Worldwide Network.
