ITV’s new dating show Romeo & Duet, created and produced by Goat Films, is filming at dock10 studios.

Oti Mabuse leads the musical matchmaking as single love seekers stand on a balcony and are serenaded by potential love matches that they can hear, but not see. The seven-part prime-time series gives its singers one song to entice a singleton down from the balcony and meet face-to-face.

The newly formed couple will then head off on a duet-date to learn a duet, before returning later in the show to perform that number in a singing competition against the other couples. The crowd’s chosen couple then go on another date.

Throughout the series Mabuse is joined on stage by musical director Vikki Stone and her live band Vikki Stone & The Heartbeats.

Romeo & Duet is executive produced by Mel Crawford with show-runner Christian Fletcher.

Romeo & Duet was developed from an original idea created by Ivor and David Baddiel. It was commissioned by ITV’s Joe Mace, commissioning editor Entertainment, and Katie Rawcliffe, head of Entertainment Commissioning.
