Amazon Prime Video announces a new Amazon Prime Original series, 'Skulls and Roses'.

Created by Monozygotic, the production house of twins Raghu-Rajiv Lakshman 'Skulls and Roses' follows a first-of-its-kind format where Romance and Adventure collide and the concepts of love and survival are put through thrilling tests and challenges at an exotic international destination.

Amazon Prime Video announces an all-new unscripted Amazon Prime Original series, 'Skulls and Roses', in collaboration with Monozygotic. Skulls and Roses, in a unique first-of-its-kind reality show format, combines 2 key youth hot-buttons: Romance & Adventure. The show blurs the lines between romance and adventure reality shows to take contestants through a truly audacious and daring journey.

Participants are invited to form couples and bonds of love on ‘Rose Island’, and are then tested for their authenticity and fortitude on ‘Skull Island’. The test is to find out which is stronger - the instinct to love or the instinct for self-preservation. The show is an ultimate test of choice - between love, trust, survival and betrayal, and it forces participants to choose between ‘WE’, and ‘ME’.
'Skulls and Roses' will be hosted by television’s dynamic duo Raghu Ram and Rajiv Lakshman, the faces behind several renowned reality shows. Entries to participate in the exciting reality series are now open. Those interested in the bonds of romance and the thrill of adventure are invited to apply on https://www.facebook.com/skullsandrosescasting.

“After announcing our foray into reality shows with comedy and music, we’ve seen great enthusiasm from Prime members,” said Vijay Subramaniam, Director, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, “We’re excited to add even more variety to our offering, and in collaboration with Monozygotic, bring a new bold concept to the unscripted content space that will continue to reinvent the way customers consume content in India.”

Speaking about the show, 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 and more youngsters are making ‘stress-free’ life choices of self-love and 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. 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.”

Speaking about the collaboration, Rajiv Lakshman, Monozygotic, said, “It’s a first-of-its-kind format where the best of two opposite worlds come together on a reality show. With this venture we bring the excitement of reality shows, on-demand, to a personal screen at your home, college or commute. The concept is very intriguing and bold, and we are thrilled to be able to breathe life into this project in collaboration with Amazon Prime Video.”

Anyone above the age of 18 can apply for this show. All you need to be is tough, adventurous, with the gumption to survive on this show.
