The Dating Guy is an adult animated comedy that follows four friends, Mark, Woody, Sam and VJ, in their weekly hunt for love… or at least some kind of happy ending. From the ins and outs of dating a werewolf to the subtleties of seducing a virgin porn star, The Dating Guy takes us on a journey into the minefield of the twenty-something dating scene—that time in your life where school is done, work is whatever, and flying to the Philippines to procure a black market liver for your girlfriend’s dying brother is just an average Tuesday night.
The fun from the TV show is extended on the Gemini Award-winning DatingGuy.com—a dating advice website for dudes, complete with quizzes, games and enticing articles, and two original web series. The first series, The Morning After Show, is a weekly debrief by a live-action panel of dating experts discussing topics from the previous night’s television episode. The second series is hosted by Dr. Love, who dishes out her insights into the world of love and dating in a funny and informative way.
The Dating Guy was produced for TELETOON in Canada (English/French) and HDNET (U.S.). Co-produced by marblemedia and Entertainment One. Distribution and sales handled by Entertainment One.
