Watch the premiere of “Dream Man”, a spoof of The Bachelor

The cast of Dream Man

TUTV has a new show on our programming schedule, this time a spoof of every college girl’s favorite guilty pleasure TV show. Dream Man is a sitcom about the production of a show similar to The Bachelor, except that all of the girls hate the man for whom they’re supposed to be competing.

Created by Temple students Holly Guepfel and Sam Berit, Dream Man works as a show-within-a-show, depicting both the dating reality show and the behind the scenes reality of the production. Watch the trailer above, and tune in to TUTV on Wednesday, February 7 at 1 and 9 p.m. to see the premiere.

The original “A Star Is Born” airs Sunday on TUTV

A Star is Born

A Star is Born

The release date of the fourth adaptation of A Star is Born is set for this year, directed by none other than Philly’s own Bradley Cooper, and this time starring Lady Gaga as the titular star. Since the prototypical Hollywood fable is coming (back) soon to a theater near you, it seems high time to go all the way back to the beginning, to a 1937 Technicolor picture produced by David O. Selznick. The original stars Janet Gaynor as an idealistic aspiring actress who finds success, but at what cost? Tune in to TUTV Sunday, February 4 at 1 and 9 p.m. to find out.
