Sony's Crackle.com to run reality dating series
Brad Garrett’s looking for love in all the online places.The “‘Til Death” star has signed on to produce and star in the Internet reality series “Dating Brad Garrett.” Sony Pictures TV, which produces “‘Til Death” for Fox, is also behind the online skein. “Dating Brad Garrett” will run this fall on Sony’s Crackle.com site, and will also be accessible on YouTube, AOL Video, Hulu, VCast and Bravia Internet Video Link. Ten-episode skein will center on Garrett as he goes on blind dates with ten different women. Garrett pals – including his urologist and his ex-wife – will choose which women he dates based on submissions to the Crackle site. Potential Garrett dates can start uploading submission videos to Crackle on June 12. “An online dating show seemed like a logical choice given that I’m in the midst of a mid-life crisis, and adverse to pain,” Garrett said. “And since I’m not picky about my choices, I hope women of all sizes, shapes and colors will be compelled to submit their videos.” Garrett heads into his third season this fall on “‘Til Death.” His credits also include nine years on the laffer “Everybody Loves Raymond,” and voice acting gigs on “Ratatouille,” “Finding Nemo” and “Night at the Museum.” Besides Garrett, exec producers on “Dating Brad Garrett” include Glenn Robbins, Doug Wald and Kallissa Miller.
