Ten has commissioned a new, contemporary version of Blind Date, hosted by Australia’s first lady of funny, Julia Morris.
Warm and full of heart, Blind Date is a show for the whole family to enjoy. With Julia at the helm and a collection of would-be suiters searching for their ideal partners, comedy and compatibility will go hand-in-hand perfectly.
Each week, one single person will ask three hidden potential suiters three questions to determine which person is very right, or horribly wrong, for them. Expect sparks to fly and love to blossom, as Australia’s singles use sharp conversation and amusing banter to find the right date for them.
Based on a highly successful British format, Blind Date is set to be one of the must-see entertainment shows for 2018, delivering witty repartee, cheeky contestants, and bucketloads of charm.
Network Ten Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “In this modern format refresh, Blind Date is fast, funny, and – most importantly – family entertainment that we know will find its way into the hearts of Australian homes. “We are thrilled that the brilliant and talented Julia Morris has agreed to host.
“Playing matchmaker for the first time in her career, Julia will hold the hearts of our nervous singles in her hands. What could go wrong?,” she said.
Julia Morris said: “I have had literally thousands of dates over the years, so I am looking forward to helping single Aussies make the same mistakes…I mean find love.”
Blind Date is a Playmaker Media production for Network Ten.
Playmaker Media Directors David Maher and David Taylor, said: “Blind Date is one of the world’s most fun and successful dating shows and Playmaker is excited to be bringing this much-loved format back on TEN.”
