Reflecting on how he navigated challenging choices and shifts in his own intimate relationships, Evans told NBC Insider, “I wish that I would have had Dr. Shamyra and this beautiful location with these beautiful people. 

Luckily, these couples have that support as they explore a new kind of relationship.

This show is going to surprise from beginning to end,” he told NBC Insider.

That includes the choices couples make over the course of the series that lead to twists, turns, and plenty of drama.

“The goal here was to broaden people’s horizons, to open their minds, and to provide them a safe place to try something different,” Evans said.

He paused, then added, “I can't wait for you to see how it turns out.”
