The dating app’s ‘Bandersnatch’-style streaming show asks, ‘who would you spend your last night alive with?’
According to Variety, the dating app Tinder has secretly been making a choose-your-own-adventure-style original series, like Black Mirror’s ‘Bandersnatch’, which will upload directly onto the app in early October.
The two-hour-long, six episode series – which has just wrapped production in Mexico City – will be set in a world where the apocalypse is nigh (sounds familiar). It asks users, “Who would you want to spend your last days on Earth with?” to which you can swipe left or right to decide how the plot will develop.
Directed by Karena Evans, who has previously made music videos for Drake’s “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What”, the provisionally titled “Project X” will be used to create an algorithm to match users with others who have swiped in similar ways to each other. While no extra details have been confirmed, producers are also considering to run the series on a streaming platform like Netflix at a further date.
