Mo Abudu’s EbonyLife TV is thrilled to announce that internationally popular show The Dating Game will have its African debut, thanks to a partnership with global content provider Sony Pictures Television (SPT). EbonyLife will produce the adaptation this spring, ahead of its planned premiere later this year. This collaboration is a significant milestone for African television and viewers will get to appreciate this hilarious format, which has been an audience favorite since 1965 and has aired in over 25 countries.
The Dating Game gives single contestants a chance to find love by asking three hidden suitors a number of questions. Whoever the contestant thinks gave the best answers is chosen and gets a chance to go on a date with the hopeful singleton. In the next episode, the audience gets to see what happened on the date and hear if the couple want to see each other again.
This is an addition to the unscripted shows we look forward to seeing in Nigeria. A number of TV stations and producers are turning to unscripted shows and 2018 might be the year of “Unscripted TV”.
