JERICHO, NEW YORK, June 3, 2002 – “Single in the City,” an eight-part reality documentary series about what it’s like to live and date in New York will premiere nationally on
WE: WOMEN’S ENTERTAINMENT on Sunday, July 7, 2002 at 8 PM/ET. Each hour-long episode of “Single In The City” exposes the racy, real-life adventures of 11 single women, as they look for love, while having fun along the way.
Last summer during the height of dating season, cameras followed seven of the singles on first dates, blind dates, wild dates and complete duds. The other four women, appropriately dubbed “The Barracudas,” bring new meaning to girl talk by sharing intimate and shocking tales of bad boyfriends, sexual exploits, and dangerous flirting over brunch and cocktails. In this series, “Real World” meets “Sex & the City,” and viewers will experience a fly-on-the-wall closeness to being single in New York.
Meet Natasha, Leoni, Lauren, Allison, Penny, Wendy, Gigi, Kathy, Donna, Sandra and Kathleen:
ALLISON, has mastered the art of juggling men. Unlike many other women, she doesn’t want marriage and children. A 6’1″ stunner with blonde hair and blue eyes, Allison enjoys a successful modeling career.
LEONI, makes a living as a seductive decoy for potentially cheating men. With a soft spot for younger male models, Leoni and her best friend, Eve, invade New York City’s hottest night-clubs looking for action.
LAUREN, calls herself a BAP (Black American Princess). This attorney-turned-singer with an explosive personality has a lot of opinions about men and she isn’t afraid to express a single one of them.
PENNY, is a British bombshell with a smart perspective on the New York dating scene. At 5″7 and 110 pounds, this public relations executive needs no help promoting herself.
WENDY, knows when she’s a got a “keeper”. Her pint-size dog Lucky gives her the nod. As Editor of Animal Fair magazine, she likes to make herself seen in the Manhattan publishing scene.
NATASHA is a career minded British banker who men practically drool over. Only in New York for a year she is already a familiar face at some of New York City’s hottest bars and lounges.
GIGI, is a sharp brunette TV reporter. Raised on the upper-east-side, Gigi has dated every single Jewish guy in New York, or so she says. Always impeccably dressed and charming on camera, Gigi makes hard news a little easier to swallow.
KATHY, works as a bartender. She spends her free time going on auditions for acting gigs and looking for her next date. Kathy is more than happy being single.
DONNA, is a budding indie film actress with a modeling career to match. With her own “Mr. Big” out of town often, Donna keeps her dating options open – when the cat’s away, Donna’s at play.
SANDRA, has just come out of a long marriage and is newly single. The business manager for a software sales company, Sandra has a knack for picking out just the right wine on a date. She’s even selected her favorites for the “first date wine” and “the evening after the night before” categories.
KATHLEEN, cuts the hair of extremely wealthy Wall Street bankers. When it comes to relationships, Kathleen says she’s driving the car. If the men don’t like it, they can find another ride.
