Nadine in Date Land stars Janeane Garafolo as Nadine, a 30-something, down-on-her-luck matchmaker who can�t seem to fix even her own loveless love life. In Oxygen�s newest romantic comedy, Nadine in Date Land, actress-comedienne Janeane Garofalo stars as Nadine, owner of a dating service that needs a professional revamping soon to prevent her business endeavor from closing its dating doors. Short on cash, Nadine convinces her mother (Swoosie Kurtz) to invest in her matchmaking agency. But there�s one small catch. In order to get out of the red, Nadine must prove to her mother that she can make a successful romantic match between herself and Adam (Brad Rowe), her old college sweetheart. With the help of her best friend Star (Tamala Jones), she�ll go to any measure to win Adam in order to keep her agency�even if it means taking a �mission impossible� approach to dating.
