Dating shows are popular on television, but a San Diego production company created a unique twist on the genre: a San Diego-based, San Diego-filmed show with real San Diego residents. It’s called The Romance, and debuted on television in February on Channel 4. The Romance will run for six episodes, following contestants on a variety of dates. They get feedback from a group of three judges including Kimberly Seltzer, a dating coach, Elle France, a Rancho Santa Fe matchmaker, and Ken Gora, with his doctorate in psychology and a background in counseling, serves as a judge and host. In addition to casting local contestants, the television series will also feature many local businesses like Crush in Solana Beach and Sbicca in Del Mar, among others.
