Talking to Strangers follows four friends who are looking for love and missing it at every turn. When Addy breaks up with her boyfriend of five years, longtime online dater Emma challenges her to give it a try. Will is a newly divorced dad and best friend Jak urges him to get 'back in the game'. Whether it's dealing with a date who's profile picture is a relic from her younger years, or learning that the seemingly perfect match is actually a racist, these four continue to log on. And when Addy's ex also joins the cyber dating pool, her new journey becomes ... complicated.

Together, they discover that you can find your soul mate anywhere. Sometimes they’re closer than you might expect.

    I like to laugh....I think the concept is great but the trailer needs something funnier to make me want to see more...make it more about the show and less about the creators. Good luck with this project

    Great idea for a show. The awkwardness of online dating is hilarious (I've heard)!
