From Big Fish Entertainment, The Producers of A&E's Hit Series Live PD, Series to Follow Couples Nationwide, Dating In Real-Time

Los Angeles, CA - (July 17, 2017) - An evening of can't-look-away dating action unfolds in real-time on Lifetime's groundbreaking new series, Date Night Live, premiering Thursday, July 27 at 10pm ET/PT. From Big Fish Entertainment, producers of A&E hit docuseries Live PD, the eight-episode series follows couples from New York City, Atlanta, Dallas and San Diego, as they embark on dates - LIVE!

Using cutting-edge, mobile-live technology, viewers get a fly-on-the-wall point of view in real-time, across multiple time zones, as cameras capture the promise of romance, awkward conversations, cringe-worthy moments and everything else in-between up to nine dates per episode. In-studio hosts, comedian Michelle Collins, Z100's Bethany Watson and relationship coach Paul Brunson, will be in on all the dating action as they bounce from city to city and provide commentary as the evening develops. Will it be love at first sight? Or will the date crash and burn?

"We've all had those moments where we been at a restaurant, eavesdropped on a date, watching fascinated as it unfolds. Date Night Live is a unique opportunity for our audience to experience that same phenomenon, from the comforts of our home. This is America's chance to watch love and romance unfold LIVE, where anything can happen," said Liz Gateley, EVP Head of Programming, Lifetime.

"Our goal is to reinvent various genres; with Live PD, we busted open the doors and brought true transparency in law enforcement to television for the first time, and we knew that this unique viewing experience could translate into other formats," said Dan Cesareo, President, Big Fish Entertainment. "With Date Night Live, Lifetime gave us the incredible opportunity to turn the traditional dating show on its head with couples getting to know each other completely unvarnished for the first time on live TV, unfiltered and unedited. This is what it's really like to date in America."

Michelle Collins made her mark as the go-to pop culture writer and comedian. She is currently host of the ABC after show After Paradise and was a co-host on Season 19 of The View. She was featured on VH1's Walk of Shame Shuttle and served as a host on the syndicated talk show, The Gossip Queens, as well as a daily correspondent on Big Morning Buzz Live. Most recently Michelle hosted Little Talk Live for Lifetime.

Bethany Watson is a co-host on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on Z100 and is best known for her What's Trending segments and hourly news updates. She recently released her web series Labeled with comedian and writer Jonathan Sosis.

Paul Brunson is a mentor, entrepreneur, and television host who has become internationally recognized as one of the most successful matchmakers and small business leaders. He is currently the founder and chairman of the award-winning matchmaking firm, PCBA, which received the iDate Best Matchmaker and Best Relationship Coaching of the Year awards in 2015. His unique understanding of relationships and personal development have made him a sought-out expert, with his work appearing on Good Morning America, The Today Show, Nightline, CNN, Entertainment Tonight, and more.
