Written by Jan Epstein Schwaid, our story dives headfirst into the shallow end of the online dating pool to expose the hypocrisy of Internet dating companies: while they project a sentimental, romantic front, they’re more interested in cold, hard cash. We meet Claire, a woman whose idea of a hot Saturday night involves a Hoarders marathon and eating frosting straight out of a can. However, when she’s hired by the world’s largest online dating site, Love’s Bounty Hunter, as a “Featured Dater,” she finds her love life turned entirely upside down. As the whole world watches, Claire’s romantic exploits spiral into sheer insanity.
Claire Bahn, of The Rivals and The Distance Between Us, will star in the project. The show also features John Wayne’s grandson, Brendan Wayne of Cowboys & Aliens and Fast& Furious;as well as, David Forseth of Cold Case and soon to be featured in FOX’s Bordertown.The project is set to beginproduction in early 2014, with a release date in the fall of 2014.
Claire Bahn says the role has been “a chance to dive into a fun,relatable new character.” The role stretches her comedic acting chops, and she looks forward to its release.
Love’s Bounty Hunter hopes to gain intense interest online over the next few months; producers plan to start pitching to networks early next spring. You can find more information about the actors, as well as the production itself, at www.lovesbountyhunter.com.
