Ever since the name change, Freeform has been trying to make itself known to those who aren't in the 15 to 25 year old white girl demographic. They snatched up a late night show, are adding new comedy shows, and now they have a series from Veep's Jon H. Ryan -- Timothy Simons. He wrote the script with Blacklist writers Derek Elliott and Jack Donaldson. Deadline reports the show is titled Bad Dates and will feature reenactments of real life bad dates. From the description, it sounds like 1000 Ways to Die but for dating. Freeform can add as many new shows as it likes; it'll always be known as "the network that is stuck playing The 700 Club forever."
