TBS casting for new Bruce Nash-produced reality dating show
By Reality TV World staff, 02/09/2004
TBS Superstation has announced that is is teaming up with reality show producer Bruce Nash (For Love Or Money, Meet My Folks) for a new, currently-casting, prime time reality dating series that will premiere June 22, 2004. According to TBS, the still-untitled hour-long series will "combine the search for love with fantastic adventure."
TBS and Nash's production company are actively conducting nationwide searches for "beautiful, adventurous, single women" looking to "be sexy leading ladies" on the apparent movie-like series. All the women chosen to appear on the show must be at least 21 years of age, single, have a valid passport and be willing to travel for 3-4 weeks from April 1 - April 30 (dates are subject to change).
According to Daily Variety, the eight episode series is intended to "complement" the much-hyped June 15 premiere of Sex In The City on TBS and will "piggyback" on Sex's broadcasts.
"The plan is for Sex In The City to drive its hopefully large audience to this new show," TBS executive Steve Koonin told the paper. "We think Bruce is a terrific producer, and we're very excited about this idea and the twists and turns it will take. We're looking for people who want to have the adventure of their lifetime."
Koonin and Nash were hesitant to reveal too many additional details about the program, but Nash did hint that the series would feature both "fish-out-of-water elements" and "the best of romantic-comedy and adventure movies." "It's definitely going to be the biggest reality series I've ever produced," Nash told Variety. "I can say that with certainty. It's like we're making a movie."
