VH1 Orders Matchmaking Series
VH1 is getting into the matchmaking business.
Making Mr. Right, centered on three women who want to find true love, will debut its eight-episode season on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 9 p.m.
The unscripted series, led by professional matchmaker April Beyer, puts single women Brittany Skipper, Lindsay Osborne and Rachel Seeker as fake "matchmakers" in order to get inside the minds of 14 unsuspecting men who believe they've signed on for a show called Match Me If You Can. The trio pretend to find the guys' perfect matches when in reality are there to mold them into their versions of Mr. Right through a series of challenges. In the finale, the women reveal their true motives.
Making Mr. Right is produced by High Noon Entertainment. Pam Healey and Jim Berger as executive producers, with Fred Birckhead and Elayne Cilic as co-EPs. Dave Kuba is consulting producer.
