ORANGE’S scenic views and abundance of single men proved big drawcards for Sydney-based production company Southern Star Entertainment when they spent several days shooting the Nine Network’s upcoming reality series When Love Comes to Town.
The producers, who had shortlisted Molong and Orange as possible locations for the series, filmed segments in Orange and Millthorpe last week.
The show, hosted by Natalie Gruzlewski, matches eligible men, including two from this region, with 12 women from metropolitan areas who are willing to relocate in order to find love.
According to a Nine Network spokeswoman, Orange was chosen for its “picturesque views and the fact that there were some great single guys there with a shortage of single girls”.
She said all the single city girls featured in the show “have been unlucky in love and travel to the furthest corners of Australia in order to find ‘the one’”.
“Along the way they will meet the two most eligible bachelors in several of the most picturesque and remote towns around the country,” she said.
“While dating these guys, the girls will learn about their lives, passions and the unique connection they have with their local community.
“The girls will then meet the bachelors’ friends and families, and spend time in what could be their new home.
“Ultimately, they must decide whether to stay in town and pursue a relationship, or try to find love in the next town.”
The spokeswoman said the Nine Network would not reveal the men and women’s identities before the series airs next year.
