Fox orders dating competition series
Fox will try yet again to remain relevant in the romance business with Dream Date, a new reality show in the works from Ryan Seacrest Prods.
The show which will could bow midseason focuses on a group of women on the hunt for love, Deadline reports. Fox isn’t releasing any details, though casting calls went out last spring for women ages 21 and over nationwide. “Do you think chivalry is dead?” the audition sheets read. “Are you asked or expected to pay half the final bill? Would you like to be wined and dined? Are you ready to have a life-changing dating experience?”
Apparently, the show includes a celebrity component. (Is that the life-changing part?)
Fox has tried for years to find a dating show that’ll pop as well as its 2000 hot mess Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? Recently, it failed in 2012 with The Choice, a ripoff of The Voice that featured four male celebrities in spinning chairs, looking for love. There was also the dead-on-arrival Take Me Out, hosted by George Lopez.
