NBC Local Media’s LX.TV, so far known mostly for its localized city guide-style programming, is adding another show to its reality roster.
The production unit is behind “The Match Off,” a reality competish that will air on NBC’s ten O&O stations (including KNBC Los Angeles and WNBC New York) starting this Saturday, June 26. Show will air at 1 a.m., after “Saturday Night Live.”
“‘The Match Off’ is the perfect series for local audiences – nothing is more local than finding a partner,” said Morgan Hertzan, Senior Vice President and General Manager, LX.TV.
The six-episode summer series, hosted by Maria Sansone, features matchmakers and clients from New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Here in L.A., that means Sherry and Eva Singer, Luis Santiago and Kim Lockhart, Julie Ferman and Dianne Bennett. The matchmakers “go head to head to help their singles find love.”
Rachel Kamrasch is executive producer.
