The real soap opera unfolds as new couples are formed and have to discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last.
COUPLED will also feature the one thing that all modern romances have in common – texting.
"First Dates" is executive produced by Ellen De Generes and Jeff Kleeman for A Very Good Production, Pam Healey and John Hesling for Shed Media, and Tim Carter for Twenty Twenty.
Anthony Dominici also serves as executive producer.
Hosted by entertainment personality Terrence “J” Jenkins, COUPLED follows 12 single, smart and young professional women looking for love, who will meet face-to-face with eligible single men against the beautiful backdrop of the Caribbean islands.
The women have first choice as they instantly decide if they feel a spark of chemistry and want to spend more time with each guy, or if they don’t feel a connection and want to wait for the next one.
“The real soap opera will unfold when these budding couples discover whether or not they have the compatibility to make their relationships last,” Fox says.
