Roku has ordered three new unscripted dating shows as the streamer bolsters its slate of original content, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Our latest Roku Original productions, To Paris for Love: A Reality ‘Rom Com, The Marriage Pact and Match Me in Miami, offer up fun, fresh and innovative spins on the dating and relationship genres,” Brian Tannenbaum, head of alternative originals at Roku, told THR. “As we continue to build our Roku Originals slate, it’s a privilege to partner with the incredible production teams behind these projects to deliver premium, original series to The Roku Channel.”
To Paris for Love: A Reality ‘Rom Com follows “three single friends, ready for the journey of a lifetime in the City of Lights.” From Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine and Zoe Saldana’s Cinestar, the 90-minute unscripted feature chronicles the friends’ two weeks in Paris as they search for true love.
The Marriage Pact is an eight-episode social experiment/relationship series that follows longtime, single friends who must fulfill or break a pact they made to marry if both are still single by a certain age. In the series, viewers follow the participating couples to discover if they truly take the plunge and say, “I do.”
Match Me in Miami explores the world of matchmaking in the Magic City, following a high-powered matchmaking firm that sets out to connect Miami’s “most eligible” singles in a matter of weeks.
