VH1's 'Dating Naked': Watch the Trailer (Video)
VH1 is the latest network to get naked in hopes of luring viewers.
The cable network will debut unscripted entry Dating Naked on Thursday, July 17, at 9 p.m. and has just released a supertrailer for the dating show.
Each episode will feature a man and a woman as they each date two different — and naked — suitors. The series will explore the art of romance free of preconceived notions, stereotypes and, yes, clothing. At the end of every hourlong episode, the two romance-seekers analyze what they've learned from their dates — and themselves — before deciding whether to move forward with their potential love matches.
Dating Naked was created and produced by Lighthearted Entertainment, with company president Howard Schultz on board to exec produce alongside exec vp Rob LaPlante and vp development Jeff Spangler. VH1's Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills will oversee for the network.
The series marks the latest push into the naked unscripted space. Discovery last year greenlighted two survival series, Naked Castaway and Naked and Afraid; Syfy explores the business and art of body painting with Naked Vegas; and TLC has Buying Naked, a real estate series featuring nudist couples in search of a clothing-optional home, among other series in the works.
