13 Jun The Suitress: A Digital Dating Series in Quarantine
One of my best friends, Naz Perez, just turned 30-years-old and she’s never had a serious relationship, but she’s going to make the most incredible significant other one day. She’s a total romantic, beautiful, and a great communicator. Naz is an entertainment host and producer looking for a modern man in touch with his feelings. She was stressed out by not having the opportunity to date during quarantine, so my sister and I decided to produce a digital show to help her out…and entertain ourselves. In The Suitress, we set Naz up on blind dates via phone in the comfort over her home. Naz does not know what the men look like. However, the men do know what Naz looks like. Naz gets to know the suitors in separate 15 minute phone calls.
Towards the end of the series, Naz gets on the phone with her four favorite suitors and it’s broadcasted on the I Don’t Get It podcast. Naz will has individual, 10 minute conversations with each of them. Following this and a Q&A with Ashley & Lauren, Naz selects the man she feels she has the most chemistry with and will go on an in-person date with him at the end of quarantine.
If you like The Bachelor and Love is Blind, The Suitress is your low budget (actually zero budget) treat during quarantine.
