Poker Central teamed up with Alkemy X to bring the new, unscripted series “Chasing Hearts” exclusively to PokerGO. The six-part series premieres on October 2 and follows couples on blind dates while experts analyze their every move, focusing on their tells.
“Chasing Hearts” uses hidden cameras to breakdown the best, and worst, parts of participants’ blind date by analyzing body language, underlying chemistry and awkward conversations. Hosts Hayley Bright, a relationship and lifestyle expert, and Blake Eastman, poker coach and founder of the training site Beyond Tells, offer their analysis on these moments and unique insights through the lens of the poker world.
“’Chasing Hearts’ combines unpredictable blind dates and poker-themed analysis to present a clever twist on the traditional dating show,” said Joe Kakaty, president of Poker Central. “PokerGO’s content library has an incredible diversity of programming that gives subscribers the choice to watch anything from live poker to unscripted reality, and everything in-between.”
Alkemy X completed a number of recent film and television projects, including “Blindspot” for NBC, “Power” for STARZ, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller “Split” and the new Hulu documentary “Batman & Bill” – which looks at the origination of the superhero and his creators.
“Using our digital and long-form experience in unscripted content, we were excited to partner with Poker Central to create this entertaining ‘poker-adjacent’ programming,” says Andy Singer, Alkemy X executive vice president of television and digital programming.
“Chasing Hearts” releases all six parts Monday, October 2 exclusively on PokerGO under the Originals tab. The new series joins “Pokerography”, “Major Wager” and “Poker Nights” as original programming only found on PokerGO.
