FYI™ PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “KISS BANG LOVE” TUESDAY, JANUARY 3 AT 10 PM ET
SERIES FOLLOWS SINGLES SEARCHING FOR LOVE AS THEY TAKE PART IN A SOCIAL EXPERIMENT BASED ON BLINDFOLDED KISSING
NEW YORK, November 17, 2016 – FYI has set a premiere date for “Kiss Bang Love,” the new original series from the creators and producers of “Married at First Sight,” where singles choose a potential mate based on blindfolded kissing. Ten one-hour episodes will premiere beginning on Tuesday, January 3 at 10pm ET.
“FYI continues to set new trends in lifestyle content,” said Gena McCarthy, EVP of Programming and Development. “Kiss Bang Love’ is a romantic, sexy and smart format with great play-along for viewers. It expands FYI’s successful relationship content, which just delivered double digit growth across all platforms in October.”
In “Kiss Bang Love,” singles searching for love will participate in a new social experiment to explore whether blind physical chemistry can pre-determine romantic success. Each episode will follow a new man or woman as they meet ten potential matches and ultimately choose their favorite based on kissing while blindfolded, associated sensory perceptions and intimate conversations. Two final matches will go on romantic dates before a final decision is made and sealed with a kiss.
The series is hosted by “Married at First Sight” relationship and communication expert, Rachel DeAlto, who will provide guidance and advice to the singles throughout the experiment.
