Los Angeles, CA, January 27, 2010 � TV Land brings together former couples from around the globe � some of whom are from Australia, British Columbia, Canada and the U.S. � to reunite for one week to share feelings about their dramatic, emotional and often-times sudden break-ups and entertain the possibility of rekindling the relationships in the TV Land PRIME Original Series, "First Love, Second Chance." The six-episode series gives viewers a candid look at former sweethearts � some separated more than 20 years ago � who have a chance to reignite the passion and love they once shared or to see if their break-up was truly meant to be. The series premieres on Wednesday, March 10th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Each week, TV Land documents one couple's week-long journey as they move-in together, meet close friends and family and try to push beyond the past transgressions to spark a new romance. At the end of the week, they send each other a dramatic video diary that spells out their true feelings, sometimes putting their new relationship in jeopardy.
"We have all probably wondered what happened to our first loves. This show gives the viewers an emotional and relatable look at what can happen � good and bad � when you find that person and see if it was truly meant to be," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land.
"First Love, Second Chance" was produced for TV Land by ITV. Andrew Hoegl, Jonathan Singer and Keith Cox serve as executive producers. Marco Bresaz is the executive in charge in production for TV Land.
