Bravo looking for a man to date a “rising starlet”

A casting agency has posted a casting notice for a future Bravo series, The Dating Project, a show that is looking for a man to date an unnamed “rising starlet.”

The notice says “Bravo has rolled out the red carpet for that special man to embark on a new romantic adventure, in love and laughter in the Hollywood Hills,” where “this stunning celebrity awaits her leading man.”

They want “[s]exy, successful, eligible, bachelors, 25 to 35, who can sweep our lead off her feet and capture her heart.” But it’s unclear if multiple bachelors will compete, a la The Bachelor and every VH1 dating series, or if the show will follow a different format.

Notices have been posted in San Diego and Phoenix and Scottsdale, among other places, but no casting calls have been announced.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
