Sarah Jessica Parker Is Making a Dating Show for Lifetime—And It Sounds Like The Holiday

AbGardner

In real life Sarah Jessica Parker has been with her husband, Matthew Broderick, for over 20 years, so she hasn’t been on the dating scene for a while. But of course, her most iconic character, Carrie Bradshaw, is the cultural representative for many single women everywhere…even years after Sex and the City left the air. 

So it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that she is currently developing a dating show for Lifetime. And boy, does that news hit so many of the pleasure centers in my brain: SJP, dating, and Lifetime. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Parker’s Pretty Matches Productions is working on a series tentatively titled Swipe Swap, which the outlet compares to the much-beloved Nancy Meyers’ movie The Holiday. (Cue another pleasure center lighting up in my brain!) Check out this description: “Two hopeful singles who trade places and adopt each other’s lifestyles—from living in one another’s homes and visiting each other’s favorite local haunts, to connecting with one another’s closest friends and family—all in the pursuit of romance in their new cities.”

Honestly, we’re surprised nobody has taken this angle on dating before, but kudos to Parker for spearheading the project. Though, sadly, Deadline reports there are not plans for her to actually appear on the show. Her production company has also teamed up with ITV Entertainment, the people behind the CBS version of Love Island, so we know they have some reality-TV experts on board. 

It certainly feels as though we’re in a new era of popular dating shows. Of course, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette—along with all their spin-offs—have blessedly never left us. But new(er) hits like Love Island, Love Is Blind, and Dating Around are driving so much social media conversation as of late. We love to see it. 

Soon (likely in 2021) we’ll be able to add Sarah Jessica Parker’s Swipe Swap to that list.
