News brief: Discovery orders Too Ugly for Love?

TUFL-1Discovery has ordered a new dating series Too Ugly for Love? for its international nets.

The series will be produced by Betty, the UK prodco Discovery acquired in 2011.

It will follow ten singles looking for love, but also hiding medical conditions that have hampered their efforts.

The six-part series will launch on TLC in South Africa and then roll out on other international TLC and Discovery Networks International channels around the world.

The conditions include hyperhidrosis (profuse sweating), alopecia and a rare skin disease.
