A dating reality series project is in the works from the creator of TrumpSingles.com.
CEO David Goss confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that he’s teamed with indie production company Boxx Communications and its president and CEO Mark Walker to collaborate on a competitive reality dating series project with politics as its centerpiece. It’s still in the early development stage, and the show does not yet have a title or a network or cable partner.
Still, Goss said he’s excited to be able to take the concept of dating during a complicated political landscape to the next level after the success he’s had with the site. Launched in May 2016 by Goss, a Republican, TrumpSingles.com now has 37,500 active users, a dramatic increase from the 12,000 users the site had in early December, just weeks after Donald Trump’s surprising White House win. The site even employs a version of Trump’s campaign slogan with the tagline, “Making Dating Great Again.”
It’s expected that the series could focus on some of the site’s users, but Goss adds that they would likely open up the audition process to anyone who has experienced politically charged dating issues or problems. Says Walker: “We would love to create a show that can show different people’s positions and possibly bring them together.”
