Warner Bros-owned Ricochet and Bandicoot TV, the producer behind The Masked Singer, are developing dating shows for ITV2 and the BBC.
Comedy series that sees dating turned into an American-style competitive sport, with all of the overblown, loud conventions that go with it. World Series Of Dating sees dating turned into a competitive sport, American style, with all of the sporting conventions that go with it – overblown graphics, music and scripted comedy analysis. The dates are real real people on real first dates and it all happens in ‘The Date Zone’. Women cast especially for the role sit in ‘The Date Zone’ waiting for their first guy to appear.
From the moment the single men walk into the zone the women can decide to buzz them out of the game for whatever reason they wish. A referee then discusses the foul with the girl and decides whether the young man gets a warning or is sent packing to be replaced by a rival. Also appearing throughout the show are two commentators who discuss and reflect on the action as it happens with super-slow mo replays and many other sporting conventions. UK correspondent James Chetwynd-Talbot Tom Price comments on the action; a nervous sports journalist he is unlucky with the ladies himself.
The touchline reporter, played by comedian Thaila Zucchi , is on hand to grill the boys when they get buzzed out of the Date Zone. It’s a huge bonus to have Doyle MacManus and James Chetwynd Talbot on board to provide the kind of sensitive commentary that is a perfect companion to that tricky and unforgiving first date moment.
Executive producers Joff Powell and Simon Welton add: “Working with a contemporary comedy icon like Rob Riggle is an absolute pleasure and we wrote the role with him in mind. Using a cross-genre combination, we have been able to utilise our reality and comedy experience to create a unique entity. BBC Three is the perfect home to celebrate an awkward right of passage we all go through, with humour and fun.
