NBC has set April 7 as the premiere date for the new unscripted series, “First Dates,” from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres. The series gives a glimpse of the simple wonder when a couple meets for the first time and if love can blossom.
Golden Globe-winning actress Drew Barrymore serves as the narrator of the series. NBC has ordered 8 episodes of the new series for the first season. “Based on a hit U.K. format, this unique hourlong series offers an authentic look at a variety of real first dates happening over one night at the same restaurant in Chicago. The show features daters from cities across the country, and of all ages, sexualities and dating experience. Using a fly-on-the-wall and hidden-camera approach, viewers will be along for the ride as the dates unfold. Some dates could be wildly successful, while others strike out in hilariously awkward fashion. Never has dating been captured in a more real and relatable way. At the end of each hour, the daters must reveal to one another if they’d like to see each other again or if it will be back to love’s drawing board!” says NBC’s press release.
Get ready to explore all the romantic possibilities and endless awkwardness (we hope) with the series premiere of “First Dates” airing Friday, April 7th at 8 pm ET on NBC.
