A&E filming reality show on one of the Thimbles

Published July 01. 2014 4:00AM

A new reality show is being filmed on one of Connecticut's tiny Thimble Islands.

WNPR radio reports A&E is filming a show called "Love Prison" on Beldon Island, one of 300 small islands off the coast of Branford. Beldon Island has just one house on just over an acre of land in Long Island Sound.

Producers of the show say that house will be home to a social experiment involving couples who have an online relationship, but have never before met in person. They will spend a week together on the island.

The network says 10 episodes of the show are set to air beginning in August.

The island is listed for sale, with an asking price of just under $4 million.

I'm not sure how I feel. Both sides in the case make good points.
