JERICHO, NY, July 1, 2003 – Last summer, a sassy group of New York's sexiest singles burst onto the scene with the premiere of SINGLE IN THE CITY on WE: WOMEN'S ENTERTAINMENT. From the Hamptons to Los Angeles to the Big Apple, the popular series documents the real-life experiences of women looking for love. On July 6 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT), WE presents Season II of SINGLE IN THE CITY. The eight women featured promise to be outrageous, outlandish and relentless in their pursuit of love and lust in the city that never sleeps.
From a magazine gossip writer to an investment banker to an aspiring belly dancer, nothing is off limits as the cameras follow the ladies around the city, uncovering their racy adventures. Eight one-hour episodes will reveal blind dates, dud dates, and wild nights in NYC's trendiest restaurants and lounges, as well as intimate girl talk. Viewers will get the inside scoop on which gender has the upper hand in dating, how far women are willing to go on the first date and more. Shocking, scandalous, often silly and sometimes sad, the experiences of these singles reflect the search for true love shared universally by women.
SINGLE IN THE CITY will feature:
CATHERINE: This former New York magazine writer has access to all the city's hottest events and parties. But despite all the glitz and glam of movie premieres and celebrity socials, she claims she's just a clumsy girl from Georgia. At a recent party, she slipped on a puddle of champagne, landing on top of Cindi Lauper.
SARAH: Calling herself "an equal opportunity dater," this part-time actress and waitress says any man over 5'7 and athletic is datable – and her profile on Jdate.com says the same. Sarah was fired from her last waitressing job because the manager claimed she was too loud. She considers that "a personal achievement in this city!"
SUSAN: A 26 year-old investment banker and graduate of Yale, Susan is part Cherokee and part Puerto Rican with a very strict set of dating rules. The man always pays and if he can't afford to live in the city, there's no point in dating him. She admits to her snobbery, but feels that being high maintenance will lead her to her future husband.
VICTORIA: 22 year-old British bombshell Victoria splits her time between belly dancing classes and traveling about the city with a pack of London "It" girls she met in private school abroad. She considers herself to be very flirtatious and intends to waste no time meeting all of the city's most eligible bachelors.
LORI: A straight-talking Long Island native who started her own celebrity events company, Lori went from "Bridge and Tunnel" to one of the best-known celebrity contacts in the city. She was voted "most likely to wind up divorced" in her high school yearbook, and although the prediction did come true, she has enthusiastically thrown herself back on the market and says things are looking up.
LAURIE: A successful writer for magazines like InStyle and Esquire, 31 year-old Laurie is always out on the town, but doesn't wait for men to approach her. On her last date, she made googlie eyes at another man across the restaurant, and then asked a waiter to pass along her email address. Very sneaky, but never a dull moment for Laurie.
WENDY: A self-proclaimed chronic dater, this 6-foot tall Barbie look-alike is looking for a man with a big bank account. A corporate marketing executive from a wealthy Seattle suburb, Wendy wants to be taken care of financially, but also wants to be respected. She claims her bright blonde hair attracts lots of patronizing men.
KIRSTIE: This 24 year-old cocktail waitress moved to New York from London after being scouted by a modeling agency five years ago. With friends in all the right places – models, club owners, promoters and photographers – she spends her time chasing parties around town all night. "I don't do a thing before midday," she says.
SINGLE IN THE CITY is produced by September Films, a global production and content company based in London, Los Angeles and New York.
