HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/7 – “Is a show that I wanted to watch,” says First Dates producer Ellen DeGeneres. “It’s people that are looking for love in a world filled with dating apps. Just a good old fashioned blind date is sometimes just the best way.”


“Sometime it works out very well and sometimes it doesn’t, ” says DeGeneres.“It’s genuine because this people really are there for love. The cameras are hidden. So they completely forget about that.”

In First Dates, Golden Globe-winning actress Drew Barrymore is the narrator. Daters from cities across the country of all ages, sexualities and dating experience converge to meet at a restaurant. Daters must decide if they’d like to see each other again.
