LEAVING LUXURY FOR LOVE: A NEW SERIES ON DISCOVERY+ TESTS THE STRENGTH OF RELATIONSHIPS WHEN THEY DECIDE TO LIVE OFF THE GRID
From the Producers of the Cultural Phenomenon ‘90 DAY FIANCÉ’ Comes ‘LOVE OFF THE GRID,’ A Series That Follows Couples – One Partner Accustomed to Living with Modern Amenities and One Who Lives Off the Land – As They Test Their Love in the Wild
‘LOVE OFF THE GRID’ Premieres Sunday, January 30 on discovery+
(LOS ANGELES) – Four couples think they have found “the one,” with one problem: one partner lives completely off the grid – no running water, no electricity and no civilization in sight. LOVE OFF THE GRID, premiering Sunday, January 30 on discovery+, follows four people accustomed to modern amenities who give it all up for a chance at true love. For the first time, these couples will live together in total isolation to see if they can make it work in the wild. Will the great outdoors bring these relationships closer together? Or will their extreme differences in lifestyles bring the couples to their breaking points?
Charlie, Joseph, Spence and Angela left civilization years ago and have built a new life in unforgiving landscapes – mountains and deserts. Living off the land, they hunt, trap, fish and forage for their food. If they need something, they make it, and if something breaks, they fix it. The only thing missing from their lives is a partner. However, they love their remote locations so much that they refuse to break away from their off-the-grid lifestyles.
Jen, Myesha, Lyndsay and Josh enjoy the modern luxuries of living in a city, like going to the spa, having drinks with friends and getting pedicures as well as everyday necessities like indoor plumbing and air conditioning, but they are willing to leave their lives behind for a chance at love with their off the grid partner. Each day will be a challenge, but they have their loved one to show them how to survive in the wilderness.
After breaking up over 20 years ago, will Jen now be ready to embrace Charlie’s unique lifestyle? How will Myesha learn to raise goats with Joseph on their secluded farm while also welcoming another woman into their relationship? Is Lyndsay able to give up her social life to live with Spence? In addition to almost having a 30 year age gap between them, will Josh (27) be able to survive the 120-degree desert heat while living at Angela’s (56) secluded house with no air conditioning?
Each couple will have to learn to adapt as they attempt to build a life together. This isn’t just partners vs. the elements – this is about testing the limits of nature and their relationship. They must hunt for food, gather resources and maintain the homestead. But to what extremes will these couples go to make it work for love?
