ITVBe and ITV Hub sign commissioning deal for "The Singles' Table"

Production for the six-part dating show commissioned by Peter Tierney for ITVBe and ITV Hub will begin this year.


ITVBe and ITV Hub have commissioned Initial to produce "The Singles’ Table." The project to execute the new dating show is set to launch this year. “The Singles’ Table is like all the best bits of a wedding day, a girls night out and speed dating fused into one exciting new dating format," ITV Director of Reality and Acquisitions Paul Mortimer, said.

"The Singles’ Table" was commissioned by Peter Tierney, Commissioner for ITV and Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality and Acquisitions for ITV. Executive Producer for Initial is Sharyn Mills. Casting for the series will be overseen by Bobbie Hall. Banijay Rights served as the international distributor for the show.

The show helps five single girls find the man of their dreams. Across one joyful summer of love, each of the six episodes sees our cast invited to a different stranger’s wedding by the bride and groom - keen for their own single mates to find ‘the one’. The girls join potential suitors on The Singles’ Table for some dining, dancing and drama, but once the bouquet is thrown and the carriages await - will they choose to see any of them again?

Over the series they’ll be attending six very different weddings, giving viewers a hilarious and revealing insight into how Brits celebrate their big day. “What could be a more romantic setting to launch a truly fresh dating show than at real-life British weddings," Katy Manley/Cat Lynch, Managing Directors for Initial, said. "We’re excited not only at the prospect of seeing sparks fly across the Singles’ Table but also at the chance of stepping into the lives of six very different and diverse British couples on the happiest day of their lives.”
