Canadian digital cable specialty channel AMI-tv has set Oct. 30 for the premiere of its new dating series There’s Something You Should Know.

Produced by Toronto’s Summerhill Media, the 6 x 30-minute series aims to demystify stereotypes around dating people with disabilities and elicit honest discussions.

Each episode follows a single person with a physical disability, which isn’t revealed to their prospective matches until after they have spoken. It premieres Oct. 30 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Other recent titles from AMI-tv, which is owned by not-for-profit media company Accessible Media, include Food Spin with Chef Aleem (produced by Montreal prodco Fair-Play) and Vancouver-shot documentary Mind Set Go (Anaïd Productions), which went to camera in June.

Summerhill’s other production credits include the 12-part docuseries Collar of Duty (Animal Planet Canada) and one-hour doc Manifest: The Power of Thought (VisionTV).
