Sky have announced the commission of Dating No Filter, an 8x30’ factual entertainment series.
The format, which is licensed by NBCUniversal Formats and originally aired on E! in the US, is being adapted for the UK and will air in early 2021 on Sky One.
Dating No Filter is a 'fresh and hilariously honest' take on modern dating. The UK version will see a group of singletons sent on blind dates, set up by quick-witted comedians. The comics will be given some control over a diverse range of matches and will then watch and weigh in on the dates, giving hysterically unfiltered commentary on every awkward interaction and heart-warming moment. But what they are really rooting for is for love to conquer all!
Phil Edgar-Jones, Director, Sky Arts and Head of Entertainment said: “The dating world has been thrown into chaos with the pandemic. How can folks get together when they have to be apart? Luckily we have the answer - with the help of some brilliant comedians watching dates unfold and dishing up some advice to our dating couples - Dating No Filter is the perfect way to re-introduce Britain to love.”
David Granger, Creative Director and Executive Producer, Monkey said: “Dating No Filter is a dating format that gives us the delightful opportunity to matchmake the best of British comedy talent with the best of British single people. We all look forward to the joy, fun and love that should come from such a great combination.”
