Reality TV’s new show, Matchmakers, brings dating on screen

Reality TV’s new show, Matchmakers, will bring to viewers the real experience of hooking up friends on dates. In true Reality TV style, the cameras will capture the whole experience of matchmaking with a little help from the programming team. The show has been launched on January 24 and is on air Monday to Friday at 10:45 PM.

Help from the programming team can be in some cases in terms of tracking down your loved one. Some might need help in getting a pre-date makeover, whether it is the wardrobe, hairstyle, cosmetic dentistry or personality development. The show will bring the intricacies of preparation and the thrill of success to viewers.

Asked on the idea behind Matchmakers, Chris Sharp, Programming Head, Reality TV, said, "In the wake of the popularity of the genre of reality programming, we thought it apt to introduce a programme like Matchmakers. We are confident that our unique programming style would lend a different meaning to the theme of Matchmakers and help us leverage our unique position in the entertainment market".

How will Reality TV give a signature style to a programme that is in the larger ambit of reality shows? Said Sharp, “What is significant about this programme is that it is not just another addition to our existing bouquet of programmes but the fact that it is somewhat along the lines of some of the popular interactive reality shows in India and abroad.”

Reality TV is a 24-hour channel and brings real-life drama and close-up look at emergency services with in-depth analyses of natural and manmade disasters. It is targeted at the 16-34 age group and was launched in India on February 1, 2003.
