WE tv’s newest unscripted series, “Love Blows,” is about a successful Chicago-based matchmaking service, run by a dysfunctional (but loving) family who sometimes let their own relationships cloud their decisions. The show chronicles the inner dynamics of LuvBizChicago, a family business run by head matchmakers – Lisa and her ex-husband Jim – who have to contend with a staff comprised of wild, young, single matchmakers; Lisa and Jim’s own adult children who co-run the business; and the ultimate snag – Jim’s former mistress, who is always creating drama for the employees and their clients. The show will air after “Million Dollar Matchmaker,” starring Patti Stanger, on Friday nights. The six-episode series is executive produced by Patti Stanger, who also appears in the show.

The world’s favorite love guru, Patti Stanger, also returns to WE tv with a new group of millionaires for a final chance at finding love in season two of “Million Dollar Matchmaker,” which recently premiered Friday, August 4. In 10 hour-long episodes, viewers will see if true love will once and for all prevail, as Patti helps some of her unmatchable millionaires…and if Patti can’t help them find love by the end of their stay, no one can.

“Million Dollar Matchmaker” airs Fridays at 9 p.m. CST on WE tv.

And beginning Friday, August 25th “Million Dollar Matchmaker” moves to 8 p.m. CST (9 p.m. ET/PT) followed by the premiere of “Love Blows” at 9 p.m. CST. (10 p.m. ET/PT).

RECOGNITION:         

 

WE tv is proud to collaborate with Michigan Avenue Magazine to recognize local singles making a difference in the community, and celebrate Chicago as one of the greatest places to enjoy single life.

Honorees (more info below) strive to make a difference in the city through their successful careers, charitable work, interests and beyond.
