Brad Garrett Looks for Love Online

New Online Reality Series Begins Taking Video Applications Today

CULVER CITY, Calif., June 12 -- Emmy Award-winning actor Brad Garrett kills two birds with one stone -- producing and starring in his first original online series and looking for love -- with his new reality series, Dating Brad Garrett.

The ten-episode series will follow Garrett on blind dates with 10 lucky ladies, chosen from applicants who submit their own original videos online for a chance to make a love connection and be part of the show. Beginning June 12, women can upload their video applications at Crackle.com, (http://www.crackle.com/datebrad), where a panel of Garrett "experts" including his ex-wife and urologist, among others, will review the submissions and decide which applicants will spend a night on the town with the comedian.

"An online dating show seemed like a logical choice given that I'm in the midst of a mid-life crisis, and adverse to pain, which makes getting my ear pierced out of the question," said Garrett. "And since I'm not picky about my choices, I hope women of all sizes, shapes and colors will be compelled to submit their videos."

The series will premiere this fall on Crackle.com, YouTube, AOL Video, Hulu, Verizon Wireless' V CAST Video service, AT&T Wireless, and direct to Sony BRAVIA TVs via BRAVIA Internet Video Link.

Brad Garrett stars as Eddie Stark, one-half of a long-married couple, in the Sony Pictures Television original comedy series 'TIL DEATH for FOX, now heading into its third season. For nine seasons, Garrett portrayed Ray Romano's big brother Robert on the highly-rated series "Everybody Loves Raymond," earning him three Emmy Awards and five Emmy nominations.

Garrett's voice-over work includes voicing Gusteau, the late French culinary genius, in the Academy Award winning animated film, "Ratatouille;" Bloat the blowfish in "Finding Nemo;" Easter Island Head in "Night at the Museum;" and Dim, the rhinoceros beetle, in "A Bug's Life." In 2002, Garrett's portrayal of Jackie Gleason in the critically acclaimed CBS film, "Gleason," earned him an Emmy Award nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for his role. Garrett's additional credits include: Disney's hit comedy, "The Pacifier;" Warner Bros.' "Music and Lyrics," with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore; and the Broadway production of Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple."
