Description:

Part of the Mating Season, “First Dates” is a brand new interactive, observational documentary series, following the thrills, fears and loves of modern dating. With nine million Brits now looking for love online and potentially meeting their partners on blind dates, the world of modern dating is complicated, but some things never change – when eyes first meet and hearts skip a beat. This is the first time television might truly capture the look of love – following daters who are hoping that they just might spend the rest of their life together. The series will invite people from all walks of life from around the country, who are looking for love. Using a fixed-rig, the series will film new couples each week in a unique restaurant – where everyone is on a first date. From the moment they lay eyes on each other to their parting glance, the hour-long programmes will show every shared joke, faux pas and blossoming connection as the series aims to see first love unfolding. At the end of every date, the couples will talk candidly to the camera about their evening and answer the killer question – will they see each other again? In a twist to the series, if the answer is a resounding no, some of the unsuccessful daters will be able to appeal to the nation. They will ask the viewing public to put themselves forward as their potential next date, by applying on channel4.com/firstdates. Just a few days later, if the dater chooses them, the viewer could be sitting opposite them in the next First Dates episode.
