ITV Studios’ Come Date With Me headed to W Network

Proper Television will produce a local version of the cooking and romance reality series, to debut in winter 2013.

The ITV Studios format Come Date With Me (pictured) is headed to Canada, via W Network and Proper Television.

After a recent move of the cooking and dating reality series to Australia, the British format is also going to Sweden, Latvia and Ukraine.

The Canadian version of the international format will bow on W in winter 2013.

Proper Television will start production on the local series this summer after a casting round.

“You can’t have too much of a good thing, so we’re delighted to bring Come Date With Me to the network this winter,” Vibika Bianchi, Corus Entertainment VP of original programming, lifestyle, reality and factual entertainment, said Thursday in a statement.

Come Date With Me mixes the cooking and competition elements of Come Dine With Me by adding romance as four eligible bachelors compete for the heart of one woman – or vice versa.

ITV Studios’ Come Date With Me format is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
