VH1 has announced Making Mr. Right, a new reality dating show in which women will secretly try to mold unsuspecting men into the boyfriend they want, will premiere Sunday, January 6 at 9PM ET/PT.
Making Mr. Right will feature April Beyer, a successful matchmaker of 15 years, helping three single women pose as "expert matchmakers" to fool 14 unsuspecting guys into thinking they've signed up for a show called Match Me If You Can.
Instead, the fake matchmakers -- Brittany Skipper, the owner of a private event planning service; Lindsay Osborne, an experienced caterer; and Rachel Seeker, a construction contractor -- will shape the guys into their own versions of the ideal mate all the while pretending to find the men true love with other ladies.
During the eight-episode series, Skipper, Osborne and Seeker will test the men's dating skills and discover flaws to fix by putting them through a series of challenges. The "expert matchmakers" will then coach the guys how to look and act like a perfect partner.
In addition, the male contestants will have a chance to show their "expert matchmakers" their romantic side in a variety of situations, which in turn may make Skipper, Osborne and Seeker fall in love with them. While practicing their dating skills and perfecting their personalities, the guys may also find love themselves with their coaches.
According to VH1, "The series allows women the opportunity to get inside a man's mind and see what he is willing to do to make a relationship work. It empowers women and men alike, to grow as a person and as a partner.Making Mr. Right explores the exciting journey to find a soul mate with a unique entertaining twist that builds to the finale when the women reveal their true selves and hope their love is requited."
Making Mr. Right is being produced by High Noon Entertainment with Pam Healey, Jim Berger, Jeff Olde, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly, and Laurel Stier serving as executive producers.
