May 4, 2005  •  Post A Comment

The reality dating show “Beauty and the Geek,” which is being produced by “Punk’d” producers Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, will run on The WB for six episodes beginning Wednesday, June 1, at 8 p.m. (ET). The announcement was made Wednesday by David Janollari, president of entertainment for The WB.

The show takes seven beautiful but “academically impaired” women and mixes them with seven smart but “socially challenged” men. The men and women will be coupled up to perform tasks, which could lead to a $250,000 prize for one lucky couple.

“Geek” is produced by Katalyst Films and 3 Ball Productions. Besides Mr. Kutcher and Mr. Goldberg, Nick Santora, J.D. Ross, Todd A. Nelson and John Foy serve as executive producers.
