TLC Greenlights Dating Series ‘Love at First Kiss’ from ‘The Bachelor’ Studio (EXCLUSIVE)

TLC has greenlit “Love at First Kiss,” a new dating series, Variety has learned exclusively.

Warner Horizon Television, the studio behind mega dating show “The Bachelor,” is producing “Love at First Kiss.”

Before landing at TLC, the project was initially set up at VH1, before the Viacom cabler passed on the series.

The series breaks singles’ boundaries by having them go beyond their comfort zones and kiss a total stranger, without introduction, to find out if one kiss can lead to everlasting love. If either of the pair feels a spark while lip-locked, he or she can head to a two-minute speed date, which could lead to date in the real world where all bets are off.

Each episode will introduce viewers to new singles — and some returning singles from previous episodes who didn’t find love the first time around — as they ditch the traditional ways of meeting someone and take the plunge with a complete stranger.

TLC has ordered eight episodes for the first season of “Love at First Kiss,” which  premieres Aug. 3 at 10 p.m.

Watch below for a sneak peak at “Love at First Kiss” on TLC:
