A hot new bombshell is entering the villa: Sarah Hyland, who is set to host Peacock’s new Love Island USA, E! News can exclusively reveal. Scroll on for the steamy first trailer.

Summer is about to get even hotter.

That’s because Sarah Hyland is set to host Peacock’s new Love Island USA, E! News can exclusively announce. Based on the hugely popular U.K. reality dating show of the same name, the NBCU streamer’s new iteration promises “naughtier games and sexier challenges” when it premieres July 19.

Or as E!’s exclusive preview teases, “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a wild ride.”

One the Modern Family star says she’s “so, so excited” to join.

Love Island is such an iconic show and I love the dating reality space,” she exclusively told E! News. “I’m just so thrilled and honored to be a part of this…They always have the hottest people on their show.”

Not that she’s just here to witness the drama and hookups.

“I really love that the girls, for the most part, stick together and really bond and stand up for one another,” she shared. “As a woman, I love it when I get to see that on television. But I definitely know that we’re going to have a lot of unexpected surprises and unpredictable twists that we’ve never seen. We’re pushing the boundaries this time around.”

And while she preps, she’s leaning on fiancé Wells Adams, the resident bartender on Bachelor in Paradise.

“He always shares a lot with me during the process of BiP,” Hyland said. “It’s a lot of unpredictability, you just have to roll with the punches and just be patient and observant and have kindness for everyone.”

She added, “He’s so, so supportive of this whole new adventure that I’m about to embark upon, and he’s really been just an amazing human being.”

Check out the first look above for a tease at what’s to come.

Peacock’s Love Island USA premieres Tuesday, July 19 with episodes dropping six days a week after.

The Adam Devine-led spinoff from the feature film franchise has rounded out its cast with Modern Family grad Sarah Hyland, The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil and Lera Abova (Anna). The trio join previously announced regulars Devine, who reprises his role as Bumper Allen, and Flula Borg, who returns as Piëter Krämer.

The Pitch Perfect show is set several years after the movies and sees Bumper move to Germany to revive his music career after one of his songs becomes big in Berlin, with Piëter becoming his agent.

Hyland will play Heidi, Piëter and Bumper’s cheery and slightly odd American assistant. While working on Bumper’s team by day, she secretly harbors dreams of being a singer-songwriter herself, and moonlights by performing original songs in a Berlin cabaret. The casting reunites Hyland with Devine after they played a couple on ABC’s Emmy-winning Modern Family.

Abova will portray Piëter’s sister and a prominent Berlin DJ and music producer. She performs in clubs all over the city as DJ Das Boot. She is as cool as Berlin in December (4.1°C).

Jamil is set as Gisela, a bombastic and flashy up-and-coming German pop star, Gisela is Piëter’s ex-girlfriend and Bumper’s main rival the German Unity Day concert. She will stop at nothing to beat him to stardom. The casting reunites Jamil with Pitch Perfect showrunner Megan Amram, who served as a writer and exec producer for all four seasons of NBC’s The Good Place.

Picked up straight to series in September, Amram serves as writer and showrunner and exec produces alongside the film franchise’s Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman, Paul Brooks, Scott Neimeyer and Devine. The series hails from Universal Television, with the three-film franchise having been produced by corporate sibling Universal Pictures.

Filming will begin soon in Berlin, Germany. A premiere date has not yet been determined

“Dear Media has grown enormously since we launched in 2018 and we aren’t slowing down.

As our first scripted series, Bone, Marry, Bury, hits the mark on our capabilities as a company and we’re excited for listeners to tune in,” said Bosstick.

RomComPods was founded by Pod People CEO Rachael King and Becca Freeman, co-host of the hit lifestyle podcast, Bad on Paper. It is represented by UTA, which brokered the deal.

“Bone, Marry, Bury started as a kernel of an idea that was totally outside our normal wheelhouse, but we just couldn’t stop thinking about,” said King. “We could not have dreamed of a better partner for this project than Dear Media who gave us so much creative freedom and encouragement to push the limits on this truly unhinged comedy.”

As we age, there’s nothing fun about taking our daily vitamins and supplements—until now, as Sarah Hyland has teamed up with Sourse to create the first vitamin-infused chocolate to make staying healthy and balanced a delicious part of any routine. And just like us, Hyland’s famous friends are chomping at the bit to try this chocolate.

There are currently four different types of Sourse chocolate vitamins to choose from, including Glow Bites, infused with collagen for smoother skin; Hype Bites, with B12 to boost energy, clarity, and focus; Mood Bites, featuring saffron and vitamin D; and Beauty Bites, which include biotin to promote stronger and longer hair and nails.

Hyland just announced that she signed on as co-founder a few months back. “When I joined the Sourse team in March, I made it my mission to work to develop life-changing products that benefit everyone who tries them,” said Hyland. “I have poured my heart and soul into creating this sweet treat with wellness in mind and can’t wait for my friends and family (and the rest of the world!) to upgrade their health and beauty routines with these tasty vitamins!”

Per Sourse, Hyland, a health advocate who experienced two kidney transplants, approached the brand with fresh ideas for two new products, the Beauty and Mood Bites. The company then underwent a rebrand and relaunched with two old standbys and the new products pitched by Hyland.

Hyland recently shared the good news on Instagram, referring to the bites as “vitamins that taste so good it feels naughty.” Her slew of celebrity followers, including Mira Sorvino and Michelle Trachtenberg, chimed in in the comments sharing their excitement to try the delicious vitamins.

Sourse, makers of the first vitamin-infused chocolate with clinically-backed dosage guidelines and ingredients proven to revitalize the way you look and feel, announced today the appointment of actress and health advocate Sarah Hyland as the brand’s new Co-Founder and Creative Director. In addition to growing the executive team, Sourse is also announcing a complete rebrand — inclusive of new packaging and two new product offerings: Beauty Bites, infused with biotin for longer, stronger hair and nails, and Mood Bites, infused with saffron and vitamin D3 for a balanced mood.

In her new role as Co-founder and Creative director, Sarah will be leading the creative direction of the brand and working with the team on product development. As an outspoken voice and true advocate for health and wellness, Sarah has been working with the brand since March of this year, offering perspective from her own experiences and health journey.  “When I joined the Sourse team in March, I made it my mission to work to develop life changing products that benefit everyone who tries them,” said Sarah Hyland. “I have poured my heart and soul into creating this sweet treat with wellness in mind, and can’t wait for my friends and family (and the rest of the world!) to upgrade their health and beauty routines with these tasty vitamins!”

Officially launched in August 2020, Sourse is on a mission to design clean, delicious, functional snacks that serve people and the planet. Sourse launched with two hero products: Glow Bites, infused with a plant-based collagen alternative for hydrated, plump skin; and Hype Bites, infused with vitamin B12 for energy, focus, and mood. In two delicious dark chocolate bites, Sourse is reimagining the supplement industry and rebranding it to something better suited for the next generation. The brand focuses on sustainable ingredients, with products that are always 100% vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, and allergen free. The launch of Sourse’s latest two products, Beauty Bites and Mood Bites, were designed to expand the brand’s overall product offerings to reach a wider audience of consumers looking to improve their overall health, wellness, and beauty routines.

Sourse was originally founded by couple Jenne Moore and Andrew Remlinger in 2020. Jenne previously led digital marketing teams for several technology and renewable energy companies in San Francisco, while Andrew spent a number of years in the finance world, serving as a consumer investment banker and advising a new wave of better-for-you food and beauty brands. Their respective backgrounds gave them new perspectives on the food industry and its connections to the environment, which ultimately inspired them to create their own plant-based functional food brand on a mission to make taking your vitamins more fun.

“After years of suffering from Vitamin B12 deficiency, I realized the capsules I was taking every day were not actually working. I became very interested in food-based supplements that provide better nutrient absorption” said Jenne Moore, founder and CEO of Sourse. “Chocolate’s natural properties make it one of the best formats for vitamins because it acts as a prebiotic and catalyst for fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamin D.”

The company’s rebrand comes just over a year after its’ official launch, and offers a more elevated brand experience with colorful, modern designs that further the brand’s mission of reinventing the vitamin industry to better suit a new generation of health and beauty devotees. “Vitamin-infused chocolate is just the beginning for Sourse. We are building a platform for optimal health and nutrition through food-based supplements,” said Andrew Remingler, co-founder of Sourse.

This announcement follows Sourse’s $1.6 million dollar pre-seed round raised shortly after the company’s initial launch. This has been an exciting time for the fast-growing company—which experienced over 400% growth in their first year and sold over 500,000 pouches.

All four Sourse products are now available for purchase through Sourse‘s DTC website, where they offer monthly supplies of each product for a one-time purchase of $34, or a subscription of $29.90/month.

EXCLUSIVE: Its a Dunphy mini-reunion at ABC and 20th Television. Former Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has been tapped to headline Yours, Mine & Paul’s, a multi-camera comedy series in development at ABC, from fellow Modern Family alum Ty Burrell and his recently launched Desert Whale Productions.

Written and co-executive produced by writer, director and actor Julia Meltzer, Yours, Mine & Paul‘s centers on Lauren (Hyland), who agrees to be a surrogate for her best friend, Paul, and his husband, Xander. There’s just one problem: Lauren and Xander hate each other. Oh, also Paul dies in the cold open.

Hyland’s Lauren is an impulsive, faux-enlightened millennial who agrees to be the egg donor and surrogate for her best friend Paul, and his husband Xander, despite (or maybe because of) the fact that she and Xander are constantly competing for Paul’s attention. She likes the idea of being the glowing, pregnant center of attention for nine months without having to take care of a crying baby at the end of it. After Paul’s sudden death, she is confronted with the looming possibility of motherhood and co-parenting with her nemesis. 

Yours, Mine & Paul’s marked the first sale for Desert Whale Prods. under the two-year first-look deal the company inked with Modern Family studio 20th TV last month. The comedy had been a hot commodity from the get-go, with Burrell as the driving force.

“He brought us this fantastic script from a promising young writer he identified, and ABC loved it as much we did,” 20th TV President Carolyn Cassidy said at the time of the show’s sale to the network.

Yours, Mine & Paul’s profile now has been raised further with the casting of Hyland, someone both ABC and 20th TV have been looking to get back on the air in a new comedy series.

Burrell executive produces Yours, Mine & Paul’s with Mel Cowan, Jonny Meeks and Joel Spence. Erica Schechter is Director of Development at Desert Whale.

For 11 seasons, Burrell and Hyland starred together on the acclaimed ABC comedy Modern Family as dad Phil Dunphy and the eldest of the Dunphy children, Haley, respectively.

Hyland, who also recently starred in the Robert Luketic-directed feature The Wedding Year, guest-starred on Veronica Mars and recurred on Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments, is repped by WME, Richard Konigsberg Management and Gang Tyre.
