From a media release:
Canadian original series, First Dates
is back for a thrilling second season featuring a brand new restaurant, all-new staff, and six hundred daters looking for love. In each episode, connections are made, hearts are broken, and plenty of awkward moments are captured as cameras catch relationship hopefuls on blind dates looking to find that special someone. A new season of First Dates
(14×30) premieres Tuesday, March 14 with back-to-back episodes at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Slice ™.
Filmed in downtown Vancouver, the series is situated in a local restaurant that is filled with real people on real first dates, and the ensuing drama is captured on over 40 remote-controlled cameras. For some daters, there is an instant and very apparent attraction, but for others, it’s clear there is never going to be a happy ending.
The action jumps from table to table as some dates move painfully along, while other dates enjoy every single moment of their time together. Half-concealed looks of hope and disappointment, flirtatious hair twirling, and under the table hand-holding are all captured. The greatest part of First Dates is the ending. After the bill has been paid, the couples are filmed side by side and reveal whether or not they are attracted to each other and if they want to meet again.
Based on the hit format from Warner Bros. International Television Production, First Dates is a co-production between Force Four Entertainment and Remedy Canada Productions, in association with Corus Entertainment.
