In the launch trailer, speed daters witness how their choices can strengthen or weaken relationships with potential love matches. As Misha and Ryan attempt to charm five distinct personalities each, they’ll face daunting ice-breaker challenges, shocking revelations, and plenty of awkward moments. Long conversations and deep questions lead to a variety of different outcomes. Streamers can take a moment to consult their audience before making game-changing decisions.
‘Attraction, dating and love are universal experiences we can all identify with,’ says director and writer Paul Raschid, ‘Our ambition for ‘Ten Dates’ was to expand the world of ‘Five Dates’ into a richer and more authentic range of dating options. The writing team included LGBTQ+ consultants who we worked with closely across the interactive storylines. We hope the result is a more inclusive experience which encourages people to try a variety of suitors. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and hope the audience will feel the same way.’
