If it all looks a bit familiar to you, it's probably because you watched one or other of the documentaries released after the complete disaster at Fyre Festival.

Well, it was about time someone turned that into a real horror series, right?

Obviously, the folks behind Fyre Festival didn't see many people with their fingers cut off, but a decent number of people got their fingers burned - metaphorically at least.

The I-Land is described as 'an immersive experience' and a 'mind-bending limited series event' starring Kate Bosworth and Natalie Martinez.

Watching the trailer, it feels like a cross between Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, popular sci-fi series Lost, and some form of slasher flick. All of that, with a healthy dose of The Beach chucked in for good measure.

It launches on 12 September and - alongside Bosworth and Martinez - also stars Alex Pettyfer, Ronald Peet, Kyle Schmid, Kota Eberhardt, Sibylla Deen, Anthony Lee Medina, Gilles Geary and Michelle Veintimilla.

The official description for the series reads: "When ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home.

"They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the I-Land's extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves - or die as their worst ones."

Hey, that sounds like a whole heap of fun, doesn't it?

As for the trailer itself, it's clearly a riff on the Fyre Festival documentary, even right down to the swimming pigs.

Whilst no one was killed, hunted, or found themselves with no memory of who they were, a hell of a lot of people definitely 'set off on a trek to try to get home' after that.

If you're unaware, Fyre was supposed to be the world's most exclusive and luxurious music festival organised by rapper Ja Rule and businessman Billy McFarland.

Needless to say that it didn't turn out that way when the Instagram influencers and music industry bods turned out on Great Exuma, a tropical island in the Bahamas.

They were met with horrific cheese sandwiches and emergency tents instead of the gourmet meals and luxury accommodation they had been promised.

It is fair to say that it didn't go as badly as it looks like it is going to go for the residents of The I-Land.

On 12 September we'll get to have a look.
