LOS ANGELES - July 12, 2017 - Hey, U Up?...Whether they're swiping right, casually dating or hitched and happy, viewers will be hooking up with HOT DATE, an innovative relationship comedy from Pop and CollegeHumor that kicks off production this week in Chicago. Executive produced by Will Arnett ("Arrested Development," "30 Rock") alongside CollegeHumor and its production studio Big Breakfast, HOT DATE chronicles the hilarious social mores of dating, sex and marriage in a 10-episode original television series.

Premiering on Pop this fall, HOT DATE dives into the rituals of dating with real-life married comedic duo Emily Axford and Brian K.

"It's rare these days to find authentically funny, original voices like Emily and Murph," said Arnett. "I'm thrilled to be part of such an inventive show."

"Through plot-centric vignettes and storylines, this funny real-life married couple chronicle relationship dilemmas many of us have faced. Whether you're married, divorced, single or celibate, no age range is off limits as this comedy covers the relatable stages of courtship from teen years and beyond."

Each half-hour episode of HOT DATE spotlights modern-day relationships and dating dilemmas such as the difficulty of making friends in adulthood, the pitfalls of dating for money, and spicing up sex lives gone...regular.

"Pop TV has broken through with some very cool, clever and hysterical comedies, and we are thrilled to partner with them on HOT DATE," said Drew Buckley, COO of Electus, which owns Big Breakfast and College Humor. "Pop TV's core viewership aligns well with the established CollegeHumor fan base, and together we look forward to creating a series that will have audiences talking."
