The Dating Guy is a 26-episode, half-hour animated comedy series for adults which made its Canadian debut Sunday, October 17, 2010 as part of the Teletoon at Night new fall lineup. The Dating Guy features a diverse cast of Canadian voice actors as well as special guest appearances by notable Canadian comedians Russell Peters and Howie Mandel. Created by marblemedia partners Mark Bishop and Matt Hornburg, The Dating Guy follows four friends – Mark, Woody, Sam and VJ – on their weekly hunt for love, or at least some kind of “happy ending.” From the ins and outs of dating a werewolf to the subtleties of seducing a virgin porn star, The Dating Guy takes viewers on a no-holds barred and eclectic journey into the dating world of 20-somethings – including the time in life where school is done, work is whatever, and flying to the Philippines to procure a black market liver for a girlfriend’s dying brother is just an average Tuesday night. The Dating Guy experience is extended online at DatingGuy.com, a comprehensive website complete with blogs, quizzes, videos, polls, a “sexy cartoon” image gallery, full episodes of The Dating Guy and two original web series. The first series, called The Morning After Show, is a weekly debrief by a live-action panel of dating experts and celebrity panelists, including Jonathan Roy and The Bachelorette’s Craig McKinnon, discussing topics from the previous night’s episode. The second web series, Dr. Love, features live action rant videos from a character who is referenced, but never seen, on the show. Dr. Love discusses topics and clips from The Dating Guy in a real-world context and with an edgy, comedic spin. The website launched on October 17, 2010 with new content posted on a weekly basis throughout the show’s run. The Morning After Show and additional Dating Guy bonus videos can also be seen by visiting the show's YouTube channel, here. The Dating Guy is produced with the participation of the Canadian Television Fund created by the Government of Canada and the Canadian Cable Industry, with the assistance of the Rogers Cable Network Fund and the Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund.
