The Dating Guy, is an animated comedy series depicting single guy, Mark, who values - well - being single. While primarily focused on the dating lives of twenty-something's Mark and his roommates V.J. and Woody, their gal pal Sam is not to be left out of the party, play and pounce type misadventures they all often encounter. Whether it's pretending to be a twin in order to date twins, marrying a friend to avoid Canadian deportation, trading an organ for "special" favors, nearly becoming a criminal or narrowly escaping one, nothing is too farfetched if it means having the time of their lives. Created by executive producers and fellow Gemini Award nominees Mark J.W. Bishop and Matt Hornburg; The Dating Guy stars Fab Filippo (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Queer as Folk, Being Erica) as charming ad man and weather guru, Mark Dexter; Sean Francis (appearances in Covert Affairs and Nikita) as Woody Jenkins, a handsome bartender and ladies man; Anand Rajaram (The Horses of McBride and Suits) as lonely computer guy, V.J. Mendhi and Lauren Ash (Scare Tactics and Almost Heroes) as the pretty, witty and wild Sam Goldman. Each week viewers are taken on a ride that starts with what might be called a "too good to be true" dating "win" for one or more of the principal characters only to find them marred by an improbable dilemma midway through and ultimately leaving them stunned and later looking to each other for advice and finally a little perspective; so, even though they never quite reach their desired outcome, it's their "oh well, what's next" attitudes that drive Mark, Woody, V.J. and Sam to keep things in check as they continue to look for their next big "dating" thrill. Each episode is 22 minutes and aired in the 30 minute television broadcast format. The Dating Guy is rated TV-14 for its adult themes.
