Bravo’s New Dating-Themed Docuseries Will Air the Same Week It’s Filmed!
Among the 15 new and exciting series that Bravo just announced for its 2014-2015 lineup — two of which are scripted! — there are some really interesting dating-themed shows, a territory the cable network hasn’t ventured into much before (Millionaire Matchmaker notwithstanding). One of the coolest concepts: An interactive docudrama that will be both shot and air within the same week.
Tentatively-titled 100 Dates, this series will take place in NYC and focus on a bunch of singles searching for love. As mentioned above, each ep will be filmed the same week it hits your TV screens (whoa!), which will allow for fans to really get involved in the story.
But how, exactly?
The Bravo press release doesn’t go into specifics, but it does reveal that “fans will be able to interact with the cast and affect the story in ways that have never been seen through social media.” How intriguing! It’s sort of like “pick your own adventure” books, but with real people.
And that’s not Bravo’s only dating experiment for the coming year. They’ve also ordered a series called Friends to Lovers? where “platonic friends leave the comfort of the ‘friend zone’ behind and transition into exclusive romantic relationships.” It’s like in When Harry Met Sally, when Harry says “no man can be friends with a woman he finds attractive.” But what happens once you get together with a friend? That’s what the show aims to find out.
On the other end of the spectrum, there’s also a series premiering in June, titled Untying the Knot, which spotlights different divorcing couples who struggle to divide their belongings post-split. How nice?
