‘betty’ are making a sixth run of the romantic, insightful and acclaimed series The Undateables for Channel 4.
About the series:
The series follows people with a variety of disabilities and conditions on their quest to find love. Working with several introduction agencies which match contributors with like-minded people, based on common interests and hobbies, age, location and more. It’s a fun, vibrant and romantic series, aiming to challenge society’s perception of disabled people. The Undateables do not believe anyone is undateable – the title is provocative and thought provoking, and in place to challenge how disabled people are often viewed by others….the Un drops off in the opening credits to reaffirm that everyone deserves love no matter who you are, and everyone can date/is dateable.
The series is about people looking for love but also is a way of looking at impairments through everyday situations such as dating.
‘betty’ are currently in the process of talking to a number of organisations, including leading disability networks and charities, about the series idea and to ensure issues are handled sensitively. Channel 4’s Disability Adviser is also working with betty on the project. The agencies, and betty, will consult when necessary with people with expertise in the areas of disability and impairment, on-screen or off-screen, for advice and guidance and will work with organisations that host friendship and dating events as well as introductions agencies that find matches for their clients across the UK, based on what has been specified by that client in terms of common interests, likes and dislikes, and location. ‘betty’ will be closely involved with the matching process and work with the agencies and organisations, seeking to provide introductions with both disabled and non-disabled people.
The series will follow key mile-stones in contributors’ journeys and explore their thoughts and feelings about their experiences along the way. From meeting the agency and getting their dating profile set up to preparing for their first date, documenting the highs and lows of their journey.
