The show introduces four adults age approximately 25-45 who are anxious to get married but have been unsuccessful in their search for a mate. Their friends and family select a spouse for them, and the newly paired couple exchange marital vows. The series follows their marriages.It sounds horrifying, but like Mandi Bierly over at EW's Popwatch blog, I'm already absolutely committed to watching this show once it finally airs. I have to understand what kind of person acquiesces to the double whammy of pre-selected spouse and cameras following the whole debacle. But here's the rub. The age rage starts at a fresh-faced 25?! Yes, indeedy, if you're not hitched by then, you're an old maid! A crotchety bachelor! And clearly a failure at life. Um, no.
The rest of the details for the project, whose early working title is "Arranged Marriage," are being kept under wraps.
Isn't that a little young to firmly believe you don't have a chance in hell of finding love on your own without some producers doing it for you?
Also, dudes, c'mon! Look at these stats!
