Nikki & Brie Garcia are teaming up to bring twin magic to a brand new reality series!
During their time as The Bella Twins, Nikki & Brie Garcia became well familiar with the world of reality television, taking central roles in Total Divas and later its spinoff Total Bellas. The Garcia Twins have since changed their names as they make their way in a post-WWE world, and they’ve taken on a number of projects including their Bonita Bonita wine brand and their Nikki & Brie Show podcast.
Now, the twins are taking on the world of reality TV once again as they team up to host a new Amazon Prime series called Twin Love, a dating show that will feature multiple sets of identical twins looking for love. A press release for the show reads as follows:
CULVER CITY, California— March 2, 2023—Amazon Studios today announced that it has ordered Twin Love to series. From ITV Entertainment, the new dating competition will be hosted by WWE Hall of Famers and TV personalities Brie and Nikki Bella, and will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide this summer. In the U.S. and UK, Twin Love will also premiere simultaneously on the free, ad-supported service Amazon Freevee.
“Twin Love is a social dating experience like no other, blending the specificity of being a twin—someone born, quite literally, with a biological soulmate—with the universality of being single and searching for lasting romantic love,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD Original Content and Unscripted Programming, Amazon Studios.
“Thanks to Brie and Nikki Bella, for bringing their personal experience to this series; to our cast, for their openness, playfulness, and willingness to be vulnerable; and to the unscripted team at Amazon Studios, who championed this series. Our goal is to help couples find love in a fun, unique way, and we can’t wait to share Twin Love with Prime Video and Freevee audiences this summer.”
Twin Love is a social dating experiment that explores the love lives of identical twins. Ten sets of twins will be split up and placed into two houses of “identical” casts, where they’ll begin a unique and compelling search for love. With double the fun and drama, the series will discover if their inherent similarities extend to their romantic desires. When separated from their twin brothers and sisters—some for the first time ever—will they pursue the same identical partners? Or will their choices be dramatically different?
Twin Love is produced by Amazon Studios and ITV America’s ITV Entertainment. Simon Thomas, Bernie Schaeffer, Kenny Rosen, and Jessica Nahmias serve as executive producers. The series is based on a format created by ITV Studios Netherlands.
A trailer for the series can be seen below.
Why Did Nikki & Brie Garcia Change Their Name From The Bella Twins?
“So that’s our real names. You know, when we were wrestlers, the Bella Twins, that was our gimmick name,” said Garcia. “So now that we’re no longer wrestlers, we were retired, we’re like ‘Let’s go back to our roots.’
[We’re] Mexican and Italian. We’re entering this new chapter, about to be 40 in November. So we thought you know entering this next decade of our lives, let’s go back to our roots as entrepreneurs and mothers.” (h/t WrestleZone)
