Bray Entertainment could probably audition for Fiddler on the Roof with all the matchmaking we’ve witnessed this month for our new TLC show, Single Dads Seeking… The 6 part series features the lives of single dads who seek out love and the missing matriarch online. Working with matchmakers and matchmaking website, we are excited to see these men attempt to find the missing piece to their family. As we enter production, our team is looking forward to see if any sparks fly with these potential couples.
In early March 2008, TLC launched a slightly refreshed look and promotional campaign, alongside a new slogan: “Life surprises”. This new slogan came as TLC began to shift even more to personal stories, with a shift away from the once-dominating home improvement shows. Programs focused on family life became the core of the channel. Jon & Kate Plus 8, which by 2008 was the highest-rated program on TLC, and Little People, Big World were joined by 17 Kids and Counting (which became 18 Kids and Counting and then 19 Kids and Counting as the Duggars, the family that the series centers on, expanded), and Table for 12 in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Also premiering on TLC in 2009 was Cake Boss, which focuses on the head baker at Carlo’s Bakery and his staff, who mostly consist of his family.
