Dating game show on fox
On August 10, 2017, Fox renewed the series for another season.
Love Connection was produced by Eric Lieber Productions in association with and distributed by Telepictures (1983–1986), Lorimar-Telepictures (1986–1989), Lorimar Television (1989–1990), and Warner Bros. Love Connection's main premise was to arrange dates for couples.
“This, in a way, is teaching some of the younger people watching what it used to be like.
You didn't spend your nights swiping right, you actually had to go out there and spend a few evenings with a few different people and find out the wrinkles.”To be sure, the bygone rituals of courtship also rarely included television cameras.
The current iteration, a co-production between original producers Telepictures Productions and Warner Horizon Television, has one of the biggest names in TV’s reality dating universe behind it: Mike Fleiss, the creator of ABC’s hit dating competition, “The Bachelor.” The show’s other executive producers are Martin Hilton ("The Bachelor"), James Breen ("So You Think You Can Dance") and Jason Ehrlich ("The Bachelor").“I always had a soft spot for that show,” says Fleiss, who had become friends with the show’s late creator Eric Lieber and credits “Love Connection” with planting the seed for him to venture into the romance TV space.“I remember it being simple and effective,” he adds.
(Note: Lee actually looks 28 — unlike his counterparts from the ’80s who, looking back, appear older than their stated age.)“We sat down for sushi. He didn’t really have any input on what to order,” an annoyed Jones says via a jumbo screen overlooking the stage. Maybe a little California roll, at the minimum.”As her snarky critique of the date continues, the audience grows animated, booing and laughing.“The charm of the show is the reporting back,” Darnell says.
He likes to rent movies, buy junk food and stay up all night.
Says that people always tell him he looks like John Davidson.
A reboot of the classic dating game show is coming Thursday to Fox.
And Andy Cohen, the pop culture-obsessed Bravo dignitary who is best known as the “Real Housewives” reunion wrangler and nightly talk show host, is the new cupid proxy.
