By Christopher Rocchio, 10/15/2007
Lifetime has announced new reality series How to Look Good Naked, Matt Titus: Matchmaker, and It's My Party will launch on January 4 and air as part of the network's Friday night primetime programming lineup.
The half-hour show will serve as a lead-in for Matt Titus: Matchmaker, which will air Fridays at 9:30PM ET/PT and follow the Manhattan-based relationship expert as he looks to make a love connection for both straight and gay singles living in New York City.
Titus will be assisted by his team of matchmakers, which includes his fiancee Tamsen Fadal, as they give their clients advice before sending them on a date. MarkMark Productions is producing the seven-episode series for Lifetime, with Mark Farrell, Mark Efman and Sara Chazen Leand serving as executive producers.
Matt Titus: Matchmaker will serve as a lead-in for It's My Party, which will air Fridays at 10PM ET/PT and chronicle two groups of party planners as they organize events for highfaluting clients.
The first seven episodes of the tentatively-titled series will follow Southern California party planner Brian Dobbin and his chef Robin as they create and execute some of their signature bashes, which are commonly referred to as "the Bentley of parties" by those they cater to. The additional seven episodes of the series will follow a different group of event planners stationed in Las Vegas.
Lifetime will broadcast back-to-back half-hour episodes of It's My Party, with the 10PM ET/PT installment following the Orange County planners and the 10:30PM ET/PT edition documenting the Las Vegas-based outfit. Intuitive Entertainment is producing the series for Lifetime, with Kevin Dill and Michelle Collins serving as executive producers.
"We're expanding our schedule with the next generation of unscripted series in January, an ideal time to launch three 'feel-good' reality series," said Susanne Daniels, Lifetime's president of entertainment.
"Following the holiday season when everyone has celebrated a little too much, viewers will see how to change their body image with Carson Kressley, learn how to find a date with Matt Titus and witness how to throw an extravagant party with Brian Dobbin."
