Dating game show to launch in Indy


Hendricks County Flyer

---- — “She Loves a Man in Uniform”(SLAMU) will launch in the Indianapolis and South Bend markets on Channel 40 and 46 respectively at 9 p.m. Nov. 2.

The dating show special, produced by Indy-based 70WesTV, just might be what “Grey’s Anatomy,” “NYPD Blue,” “CSI,” or an NFL locker room were like if placed in a blind-date game show format. SLAMU is a blind-date game show that brings single ladies together with handsome single guys in a multitude of uniforms — from NFL jerseys to moving company T-shirts — offering the real possibility of finding true love.

This announcement was made by Felicia Moodie and Tamara Stubblefield, producers of the show.

“SLAMU was born out of the ah-ha moment young 20-somethings and sometimes late bloomer 30-somethings have when a person finally realizes its more than just looks that keeps a relationship together and that the qualities of honor and service are even more important to a lasting relationship,” they said in a press release.

Moodie partnered with fellow Notre Dame classmate and former CIA profiler Patrick Parks, who will host the dating show special, and also recruited former Cleveland Browns running back and Notre Dame football captain Travis Thomas to be part of the show’s lineup.

Parks’ background as a performer, profiler for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and as a coach in his private practice to Fortune 500 executives, celebrities, and pro athletes makes him a perfect fit as a matchmaker, according to producers.

“Though he never deliberately planned any of it, Patrick admittedly has used his knack for observing people in every job he’s ever had. So it just made sense to ask him to host the show,” Moodie said.
