Posted by at 1:08 pm on February 14, 2017

On Tuesday, NBC announced the premiere date for “First Dates,” a dating reality series that will be narrated by Drew Barrymore. The series will debut on April 7 at 8 p.m./7c. Based on a hit U.K. format, the hourlong series offers a look at a variety of real first dates happening over one night at the same restaurant in Chicago.

The show features daters from cities across the country, and of all ages, sexualities and dating experience. Using a fly-on-the-wall and hidden-camera approach, viewers will be along for the ride as the dates unfold.

Barrymore has primarily focused on film, but she has been involved in various TV projects in her career. In addition to starring in the short-lived series “2000 Malibu Road,” she executive produced the reality shows “Tough Love” and “Tough Love: Couples,” as well as the reality cooking show “Knife Fight.” She also executive produced the rebooted version of “Charlie’s Angels” in 2011. She currently stars in the new Netflix comedy series “Santa Clarita Diet” alongside Timothy Olyphant.

NBC had previously ordered eight episodes of “First Dates” from executive producer Ellen DeGeneres and Shed Media, part of the alternative department at Warner Bros Television.
