Created by Monozygotic, the Amazon Original Series brings back the ‘evil twins’, Raghu-Rajiv as hosts to the new reality show, Skulls and Roses; packed with Romance, Drama and Adventure, this unique reality series takes contestants through a roller coaster ride testing them for love and survival.
Amazon Prime Video today launched the trailer for its first-of-its-kind youth-reality show - Amazon Original, Skulls and Roses. It is a unique youth reality show format with a bold and adventurous take on love and survival. It is an ultimate test of choice - between love, trust, survival and betrayal and it forces participants to choose between ‘WE’ (love) and ‘ME’ (self-preservation). The show was shot in picturesque South Africa. Amazon Prime members across 200 countries can catch all the 10 episodes of the new series starting from August 30.
Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “At Amazon Prime Video, we are always looking to create content that appeals to different sets of audiences. And with a bold new unscripted Amazon Original show like Skulls and Roses, we have again taken a disruptive route to create a series that will appeal to young audiences everywhere. We are excited to have found perfect collaborators in Monozygotic who really understand the pulse of this customer segment and have created a bold and thrilling concept that combines adventure and romance in a way that’s never been seen before”. Raghu Ram, Monozygotic, said, “In today’s age of dating apps, young couples are finding it increasingly difficult to deal with the problems of a committed relationship. Consequently, more & more youngsters are making ‘stress-free’ life-choices of self-love & self-growth. This generation is increasingly facing a dilemma of ‘we vs me’. Skulls and Roses magnifies both aspects of this dilemma as well as the consequences of their choices”. Rajiv Lakshman, Monozygotic added, “What will you choose if ‘Love’ is the best chance to stay in paradise, but ’Survival’ can only happen alone? I think that is an intriguing concept for us to delve into. With this venture, we bring the excitement of reality shows, on-demand, to a personal screen at your home, college or commute. And in a marked departure from reality TV format, viewers can binge-watch all episodes starting August 30.”
Raghu and Rajiv make their long-awaited return as hosts and producers of the Amazon Original Series. The 16 participants (8 men and 8 women) are invited to form couples and bonds of love on ‘Rose Island’, which are then tested for their authenticity on ‘Skull Island’. The test is to find out which is stronger - the instinct to love or the instinct for self-preservation.
