Nick and Vanessa Lachey to Host ‘Love Is Blind’ Dating Show for Netflix

Couples will date and form relationships without ever seeing each other

Husband and wife duo Nick and Vanessa Lachey have been tapped to host a new dating show for Netflix, the streamer announced Wednesday.

Titled “Love Is Blind,” the serialized dating show will follow singles as they date, form relationships and fall in love, all without ever having seen their dates.

The couples will see each other for the first time after getting engaged, and the cameras will continue to follow them as they attempt to form a physical connection to match the emotional one in the days leading up to their wedding.

The series will be produced by Kinetic Content, which is also behind Lifetime’s hugely popular reality series “Married at First Sight.”┬áChris Coelen, Sam Dean, Ally Simpson, Eric Detwiler and Brian Smith of Kinetic Content will serve as executive producers on the project.

For Netflix, “Love Is Blind” is a deeper push into unscripted programming. The streamer recently rolled out the “Catfish”-esque game show “The Circle,” in which contestants have to figure out which of them — based only on each other’s social media profiles — is not who they claim to be.
