About


Jenn B "The Queen of Dating" is hitting the road to Comic-Cons across California to document the adventures of Super Heroes and Nerds!

A preview of the comic book side of things!
A preview of the comic book side of things!

Hey, dating is hard enough...but it’s even harder if you are dressed as a Klingon. "Nerds Need Love" is a lighthearted but earnest reality show featuring Cosplayers, Comic book fans, and even celebrities from the comic book world.

Our Klingons, Stormtroopers, and other Super Heroes will be interviewed by Jenn B, "The Queen of Dating", on their quest to find love. We will follow Jenn as she interviews contestants during a "speed dating" session. Jenn will interview the speed daters and the viewers at home will be given a "play by play" of how the dates are going from the contestant point of view. The most promising pairs will be sent out on a date and followed by a camera crew. After the date is over, Jenn will interview each participant separately to see how they thought the date went and see if the contestants feel a love nerd connection has happened.  

Who We Are

 Jenn is the Owner and President of the Nationwide Company, The Queen of Dating. Jenn is a regular on Good Day Sacramento. In addition, Jenn is the President of The National Association of Professional Women's Sacramento Chapter. She holds a Masters Degree in Special Education. Jenn recently signed with Abyss Walker Entertainment and will be featured in upcoming projects and comic books.

So Jenn, how will the show work?

 Jenn is scheduled to appear at comic-con conventions across the state of California (and possibly touring other states as well in the future). Jenn and her team will be videotaping a "speed dating" session at Comic Con. At the speed dating session, Jenn and her team will have mini-cameras set up on each dating contestant, along with wireless microphones, taping their conversations. During the "speed dates" Jenn will be "popping in" on screen asking about how things are going for each of the participants. Jenn and her team will pick some of the more interesting pairings and send them outside of the comic-con location to go on a date-a set of mini-cameras will be set up on location and a video crew will follow them along capturing the date. After the date is over, Jenn will interview each person individually to see how the date went (breaking down the video we shot at the date) the team will then film the two contestants together and see if they would like to go out again. Each episode will consist of a speed date session that will then follow 2 or 3 pairs on a date.

What We Are Planning To Do

Jenn and her team will be shooting and editing a "sizzle reel" and a full pilot to show to productions companies once this project is complete.  From there Jenn and the team hope to make 8-12 episodes a season. Nerds Need Love will begin taping the pilot and sizzle reel September 28, 2013 at Sac Comic Con. http://www.sac-con.com

Production Costs  

In order to create the series, Nerds Need Love needs donations to be able to shoot the sizzle reel, hire the camera crew, buy production and camera equipment, hire a comic book artist to draw comic book panels in footage to be used in Sizzle Reel, production, photography, editing and to create this fun and exciting comic book inspired reality series. We are micro-budget. Which basically means that we're making this reality show as cheaply as is humanly possible. Some costs are unavoidable. We need money for basic film costs (camera rentals, lighting equipment, travel costs, post-production). This is a passion project for us. But it's one that will live or die by this Kickstarter campaign. We truly can't do this without you. Following up after the date and obtaining contestant feedback is the entertainment portion of the reality series.
