Named after his classic 1993 hit, “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)”, Meat Loaf is creating his own reality dating show under the same title.
It’s reported that the 73-year-old singer has teamed up with production company, Nobody’s Hero to develop the 'relationship competition series.’ The competition will involve physical games and tests to see how much contestants can work together and trust each other. It will be played to the soundtrack of classic hits performed live in studio.
In a report by Deadline, it’s said:
"In each episode, two couples will put their relationship on the line for the show’s cash prize. After two rounds of absurd and sometimes frightening physical contests, inspired and accompanied by ballads, the couple on top will advance to the “Endgame,” where their faith in each other will undergo the ultimate challenge."
Michael Lee Aday, better known as Meat Loaf will act as executive producer for the show but any further details of the show have not been announced or finalised.
The song 'I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)’ was the first single from his album 'Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell’ and reached the number one spot in 28 countries including Australia. It also won him a Grammy Award for Best Rock Vocal Performance, Solo.
In the same report, Nobody’s Hero creators, Potts and Nash said:
“For the most part, we want to create shows that are funny, clever and buzzworthy, but two out of three ain’t bad.
Meat Loaf added:
“You took the words right out of my mouth.”
