Change of Heart Free TV Show Tickets in New York City
The Change of Heart TV Show is Shot in New York City and Tickets To The Show Are Available To The Public
Change of Heart Changes Filming Location from LA to NYC
The TV date-game genre became so crowded in Hollywood that the producers of "Change Of Heart" shifted production to New York in part because "the pool" of suitable TV daters in Los Angeles is running too low.
When "Change of Heart," syndicated by Warner Bros. Domestic Television, was "the only game in town," there never was a problem signing up participants for the show, according to executive producer Scott St. John. He and his producers could go to clubs singles joints to pick out prospective "change of hearters" without fear of competition.
As St. John explained at the opening day of the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena on Monday, "You start off as the only game in town and going to these venues, then you see four or five competing shows turning up at the same events."
New competitors for Change of Heart and Blind Date
Of course, that was not the only reason for moving the show from Los Angeles to the Big Apple, he said, but it certainly played a big part. Joining the ratings-buoyant "Change of Heart" and competitor "Blind Date" from Universal this season will be Telepictures' "ElimiDate," Universal's "The Fifth Wheel" and Tribune's "Talk or Walk," among others.
The producers and hosts of the plethora of relationship strips being presented at TCA all echoed the common theme that their shows will be different and will stand out from the others this season. In the case of "ElimiDate," for instance, executive producer Alex Duda stressed that it had a strong game element that gives it a reality TV edge.
"ElimiDate" involves one girl dating four guys (or vice versa) at the same time and eliminating three of the dates in the course of the episode until one winner remains. The show is being produced in various cities to give it a broad appeal, according to Duda. The producers have already shot in Dallas, where every prospective female participant's "ideal date was a 6-foot-4 Texan guy with blue eyes," Duda said.
"ElimiDate" will also go on location to Nashville, Boston, San Diego, Washington and San Francisco -- cities that the producers say are chock frill of young, dating singles. This, she said, will also solve the problem of finding young daters in Los Angeles.
"The Fifth Wheel" takes a different approach to the genre: It sends two men and two women out on a date, but they "suddenly find themselves joined by an additional person, the 'fifth wheel,' and all bets arc off as they each vie for each other's affection," said Matt Cooperstein, senior vp domestic television at Universal Worldwide Television. The series will be hosted by Aisha Tyler, host of E! Entertainment's "Talk Soup."
Change of Heart's New Host
"Change of Heart's" producers used the opening TCA day to introduce and announce the new host of the show, stand-up comic Lynne Koplitz, who replaces Chris Jagger, who had been host of the show since its launch three years ago. Koplita, a featured comic at several top Manhattan clubs, also will do street interviews.
The producers are looking to give "Change of Heart" a new edge with the move east. "The New York shows we've produced the past three seasons have been our most popular," Telepictures Prods, president Jim Paratore said. "The move to New York, combined with Lynne's comedy background, will bring a whole new attitude and flavor to the show."
