Hulu gets into the love business with a new unscripted show hosted by Taye Diggs.
Back in the Groove follows three women in their 40s, caught up in the grind of their daily lives, who will check into The Groove Hotel, a resort on an island in the Dominican Republic. The goal is to rediscover their youth, live joyfully and hopefully find love in men half their age.
“As the saying goes, you can’t fall in love with someone else until you fall in love with yourself!” according to the Hulu announcement. “At the Groove Hotel, these three women get the chance to do both! Whether they find the perfect flirt, friendship, true love or anything in between, this is their chance to take charge and break the double standards older women face every day. And they will have a lot of fun with it!”
The show marks the first unscripted Hulu Original series under the Walt Disney Television Alternative Banner. There will be eight episodes.
The three women are Sparkle, a 43-year-old from Atlanta; Steph, a 41-year-old from Miami, and Brooke, a 42-year-old from Los Angeles.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Elan Gale, Bill Dixon, Sonya Wilkes, Evan Wilkes, Michael Krupat, John Luscombe, Shannon Stoeke and Diggs. Back in the Groove is produced by Walt Disney Television Alternative and Beyond Media Rights Ltd.
