New York, NY (PRWEB) March 26, 2009
True Entertainment, the Endemol company behind the hit Bravo show, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," has signed a development deal with celebrity matchmaker Samantha Daniels, whose life was the basis for the NBC/Darren Star show, "Miss Match " to create a surprising romantic docusoap with the working title, "Sexy, single and...searching."
The show follows a cast of five gorgeous but single women with Daniels at the core as they live their real single lives in NY, yet for some reason, simply can't find love. These beauties, all smart, interesting and social will be forced by Daniels to face their attraction Achilles heels and make the changes necessary to embark on a journey of love. "When you meet beautiful young women, who seem smart and accomplished, yet are single and unhappy about it, you have to wonder why. What's the problem? Why can't they find love? Samantha understands what is happening and she will show these women and women everywhere what it takes to turn their lives around," says Steven Weinstock, president of True Entertainment.
The show will be set in New York City and in typical docusoap fashion, will follow the real lives of these women- from their homes to their workplaces, and their socializing, out on the town. They will have constant guidance from Daniels, their modern day cupid as she acts as part matchmaker, part confidant, part therapist and part Gordon Ramsey of love. "I'm excited to be partnering with True Entertainment to create this show," says Professional Matchmaker, Samantha Daniels. "I've spent many years as a matchmaker, and I'm still surprised by how many fabulous single women simply can't find true love. They may be pretty and accomplished on the outside but something inside is sabotaging their chances. I am going to find that thing, teach them how to fix it, and show all women out there that that they can fix it in themselves too."
