Meet Cute, along with Hough’s production banner, Canary House Productions, wrote and executive produced the series, which also stars and is voiced by the Dancing with the Stars champ. As the title of the series suggests, Transformation aligns with Canary House’s mission to impact lives through stories of transformation, self-discovery and identity. Morgan Pichinson, president of Canary House, also executive produced the podcast. Canary House has a first-look deal at Universal TV.
Shah’s Meet Cute — a very appropriately titled company — launched in February and is a podcast platform that makes 15-minute audio romantic comedies. To date, the company has produced and released nearly 200 rom-coms.
Focusing on modern romance that reflects the times, the episodes feature characters with a diverse range in age, ethnicity, backgrounds and love interests and is not exclusive to hetero stories. Meet Cute has built one of the largest and most diverse networks of producers, actors and writers to tell moments of human connection within scripted rom-coms. Its creative network has many communities represented including Black, Latinx, Native American, Asian and LGBTQ+.
Emmy winner Hough has appeared in Grease: Live!, Footloose, Safe Haven and as a two-time professional champion and judge on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. She recently launched Kinrgy, a movement experience inspired by the elements.
Meet Cute is repped by WME.
