Forget about the "two people meet each other" typical love story. It's now a full-on family affair.

In each episode, audiences are introduced to a bachelor/bachelorette who's looking for love. That singleton is then sent on three dates – to meet the families of three potential partners.

The twist in the tale? The bachelor/bachelorette must choose just one potential partner who they think they'll hit it off with – based solely on what the families say and do. But will they make the right choice?

"ST Novela E Plus"... it's SUCH a mouthful and has no personality or identity to it whatsoever. It's such a bad, bad name for a telenovela channel which could be a drawcard for StarSat if it had a proper name.
