NBC to air two-hour dating series which finds a man courting his ex-girlfriends.
Accelerating the sometimes tedious process of , NBC will air a dating show that will develop and conclude within just two hours. The show’s executive producer tells Zap2it.com, “This show takes all of the ingredients of great reality television–the romance, the arguments, the tears and the gut-wrenching decisions–and plays it all out from beginning to end [in one show]. There’s no waiting for next week–or the next six weeks. You get it all in one night.” There’s another major difference here, too: The One That Got Away will find North Carolina bachelor Skipper Kress choosing from seven women he already knows. The bachelorettes are all his ex-girlfriends. The show airs May 31.
