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.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
