Netflix to produce a ‘Jewish Matchmaking’ series
By Caleb Guedes-Reed
(JTA) — Matchmaker, matchmaker — are you going on Netflix?
The streaming giant announced a new “Jewish Matchmaking” series on Thursday, modeled after its hit “Indian Matchmaking.”
Details are scant, and there is no premiere date, but Netflix’s companion site Tudum says it will feature “singles in the US and Israel as they turn their dating life over to a top Jewish matchmaker.”
“Will using the traditional practice of shidduch help them find their soulmate in today’s world?” the show asks.
