Coming off a nomination at the Reality TV Awards in Hollywood, The Romance airs Friday, April 28th on Dish Network’s FOTV channel (in Southern California, Las Vegas and Miami) and nationwide streaming on all connected devices thanks to FilmOn TV. The show aims to level the playing field on dating shows–instead of one lucky bachelor and a dozen women, The Romance sets up a pool of 12 men and 12 women. In stead of being sequestered in a candel-lit mansion they go about their daily lives, they have jobs, some have kids. More importantly they have baggage. Their real lives get discussed and along with coaches and dating experts, things get worked out.
The show was a hit when it ran in previews in the San Diego Area, and so FilmOn TV and Branded Entertainment have decided to roll it out nationwide. After Friday’s premiere episodes will air on Sunday nights at 9pm. One of the reasons the San Diego test audiences liked it is that it was relatable. “They don’t go on dates in Bora Bora,” said Katherine Hoss, of Escondido. “They get steak frittes at a bistro downtown and skip the movie to go on a romantic walk. It’s life.”
On Dish Network, The Romance airs on FOTV channel 6 in Southern California and Las Vegas. In Miami its FOTV channel 9.
FOTV also airs live sports, classic movies, and other original programming around the clock. Watch it here: https://www.filmon.com/channel/fotv-usa
