I’m reaching out today because we’re seeking audience feedback on the pilot episode of Dating Unlocked that my partner and I came up with on one of our drives between Toronto and Montreal. It often happens this way – we’ll be listening to music or a podcast on the nearly 6 hour drive and then at some point start talking about TV show ideas.
Sometimes they’re good, often they’re not or we may discover another company has just launched a very similar show. The creative process can be challenging in that way – everyone develops their content in a relatively quiet or secretive way and then one day – bam! There’s a new show. Because we’re all influenced by so many factors – our place in history, the news, cultural trends, music, art, a conversation overheard in line at the grocery store it’s not uncommon for very similar shows to emerge from unrelated companies in different geographical locations.
My partner, Patrick, coming from the world of health technology and currently eyebrows deep in his PhD work has a very different perspective and experience base than yours truly. I think that’s why we have so much fun creating show ideas together – our brains just work in very different ways.
On one of these drives we came up with the concept for Dating Unlocked and this year we held a casting and found a host we fell in love with (and hope you will too!), shot the pilot episode and are now seeking some feedback. If you live in Canada, the network (OUTtv) is sharing this landing page where you can screen the episode and then fill in a short questionnaire. WATCH IT FREE HERE in Canada.
Before we go to series it would be great to know- what you liked, what you didn’t and how we can make it even better. If you know other people who enjoy dating shows, we invite you to share the link with them as well.
If you don’t live in Canada, and are interested to see the show, we’ve currently made it available on my storefront here. We’ll be adding more platforms in the future and if you sign up for the newsletter we’ll be sure to let you know.
Thanks so much, we know how busy everyone is – we appreciate your time and input.
