Myx TV Greenlights Hidden-Face Dating Series 'Bagged' (Exclusive)
Myx TV, an English-language multicultural Asian-American entertainment network, has greenlighted a new dating series in which contestants' heads are covered with masks.
Bagged, an original series that premieres at 8 p.m. Aug. 21, aims to "determine if looks or personality reign supreme" when it comes to dating.
The premise finds three contestants vie for one dater's affection. The competitors heads' are covered for the duration of the dates and only exposed at the end, when the winner is chosen. Viewers will then get to see if their looks match their personalities and how much looks really matter.
Each episode features diverse daters and contestants of varying races and sexual orientations. The show was shot in and around Los Angeles.
“In today's world where appearances are so valued and judged, we think Bagged is a refreshing take on dating," said Miguel Santos, general manager at Myx TV. "Bagged is entertaining, sexy and provocative — just like the dating lives of many of our viewers."
