BURBANK, Calif. � December 11, 2007 � Building off the success of its hit docu-dramas, Bravo announces the premiere of its newest series in the genre, "The Millionaire Matchmaker," where Patti Stanger, founder of a Los Angeles based elite matchmaking service, helps wealthy men find the women of their dreams. "The Millionaire Matchmaker" will premiere on Tuesday, January 22 at 11 PM ET/PT and moves to its regular time period on Tuesday, January 29 at 10 PM ET/PT.
With a fierce passion for her work, Stanger is determined to find love for each and every one of her clients. An experienced third-generation matchmaker, Stanger founded her company Millionaire's Club in January 2000. Previously, Stanger was Director of Marketing for Great Expectations, the largest and oldest dating service in the United States.
"Millionaire Matchmaker" will follow Stanger and her dogged staff as they give their big-bucks clients complete transformations with the help of personal shoppers, interior designers, date coaches and therapists. In each episode, two wealthy men are set up on dates with potentially compatible women, who are hand-picked by Stanger based upon their beauty and intelligence. The docu-drama also follows the resolute Stanger as she deals with the challenges of running a small business with demanding millionaire clients, all while trying to keep her own personal life on track. It's a juggling act that often results in love connections and wedding invitations, but occasionally leads to high drama and unpredictable results.
