No Likey, No Lighty! Hit dating show Take Me Out to launch in the U.S.

Hits British dating show Take Me Out is getting an all-American makeover for U.S. audiences.

Television network giant Fox has placed the remake of the unscripted show in the hands of FremantleMedia, who also produced American Idol and X Factor.

Set to air stateside at 8pm on June 7, the hour long programme will take on the same format as the ITV show.

British version: Paddy McGuinness and some of the contestants on Take Me Out

The current set up of the show is based around one bachelor trying to impress a panel of 30 single women who are looking for love.

Whenever the man fails to entice the bachelorettes they have the option to switch off their lights, if the guy gets through two rounds successfully without a blackout he is then guaranteed a date.

In the third and final round the game reverses as the girls have to compete against each other in the hopes that the bachelor doesn't turn their light off, and takes them on a date to the Isle of Fernandos.

The man with all the right words: Paddy McGuinness

Casting has already started over in the States to find men and women who will take part in the show.

FremantleMedia's Jeff Apploff will take on the role as executive producer with Jack Martin and Kevin Williams as co-executive producers.

Fox are yet to be announce who will front the speed dating show and play host to the 'Flirty 30'.
