Tinder is everywhere, so much so that the pilot of this new web sries is premised on a Tinder date gone wrong. In the first episode of "Local Attractions," a woman named Maeve ends up on a terrible Tinder-facilitated date with a man named Trent.
“My friends, some of them go on what feels like twelve [Tinder] dates a week,” its creator, Connor Hines, told Betabeat. “It’s amazing — morning coffee, lunch, Sunday walks in Brooklyn — I found it astounding. The stories that they had, I couldn’t believe. Somebody needs to be doing something with this.”
“I was astounded by how many people felt that they related to the experience,” Hines said, adding that he will likely launch a Kickstarter to finance the rest of the series.
