According to a report from Variety, dating app Tinder is set to launch a “choose-your-own-adventure” styled streaming series next month. The series will be set before an impending apocalypse and will pose the question “Who would you spend your last night alive with?” The show will air directly on the Tinder app and users will be given the choice to swipe left or right to continue the plot…What the hell did I just write?
The series, which is currently untitled, will be a six-episode affair. Production just wrapped in Mexico City and the project was helmed by director Karena Evans. While not having previous experience with television projects, Evans has directed videos for rapper Drake and even led the pilot episode for Starz’s drama P-Valley.
According to another unnamed source, Tinder is looking to bring the series to other platforms after its initial run on the app. Considering the unique nature of the program, it seems likely Netflix will play host to it when it does wrap up. The series reportedly runs for a little over two hours and is shot in portrait orientation to accommodate viewing on smartphones.
Variety claims the show went under the codename of “Project X” and had a projected budget of around $5 million USD. It was shot entirely on location with “up-and-coming” actors and actresses. The show is predicted to air the first week of October.
