DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, February 2017) What better time than Valentine's Day for NBC to announce it has set Friday, April 7 (8 p.m. ET/PT) as the premiere for executive producer Ellen DeGeneres' new series "First Dates," which takes a peek at what happens when a couple meets for the first time and romantic possibilities seem endless. Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress and producer Drew Barrymore will serve as the series narrator. NBC had previously ordered eight episodes of the observational documentary series from DeGeneres and Shed Media (part of the alternative department at Warner Bros. Television Group). 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!
