To the Editor in Chief-I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I just wanted to follow-up with you about Fate Date. The show started as a last minute addition to a struggling college television lineup at Loyola College in 2002. Along with a director and creator named BJ Barretta, and host and head writer named Joe Salvati, myself and two people who would soon become among my best friends, put together a blind date show starring two real life Loyola college students. Once outside of school, we worked ourselves into the world, but still desired to return to the world of Fate Date. So now, with the vigorous support though, not financial, of a new college television network called The U Network (www.theunetwork.com), we are producing a pilot for a new season of Fate Date.
I think students of your college paper would be interested in our story. In each episode, we’ll visit a college campus across the continent and not only look for “the funny” in an awkward blind date with the cameras rolling, but we’ll also examine the dating scene of each campus. It seems these days a lot of college dating amounts to nothing more than “hooking up.”
We’re out to prove dating isn’t lost on college campuses, it’s just forgotten.
I invite you to visit our web-site www.fatedate.tv. I hope to talk to you soon about Fate Date,
