Also, they’re developing a new show, and this one is open to an “older” (emphasis on the quotes) crowd. It’s called Singles Cruise, and involves 16 single people on a cruise ship for two weeks. Those chosen will “embark on a singles cruise for a series of revolving match-up dates and sexy games” while trying to not get voted off the ship. Application details are here; deadline is this Saturday. There are also open casting calls in Chicago, Dallas, SF and Miami.
