The massively popular First Dates is getting the American treatment.
The Channel 4 show has been a huge hit and even works really well in an Irish context.
(An aside: we'd love to see some older Irish daters coming forward. It's nice to see all those peeps in their early twenties and all, but there's not quite the mix of people that the British version has.)
Now the show is being tailored for an American audience. Ellen Degeneres is producing it and Drew Barrymore has been chosen as narrator.
Americans are pros at dating.
It's probably fair to say they're generally more open about their lives than we are here.
And let's face it, a lot of them are pure cracked.
That's kind of a dynamite combination but the show has a very simple premise.
It'll be very interesting to see how the format works.
