A new dating show executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres is scouring Austin and other Texas cities in search of sexy singles.

The show, “First Dates,” has been picked up by NBC. A premiere date hasn’t been announced just yet.

If you’re single and ready to mingle, head to firstdatescasting.popular.productions to answer a few questions.

The fine print: Contestants must be legal U.S. citizens and can’t have any felony convictions, among other restrictions. Candidates running for office won’t be considered, either.

Producers will review the responses they receive and determine who appears on the first season of “First Dates,” which will feature eight episodes. If it does well in the Nielsen ratings – and with DeGeneres involved that’s pretty much a given – expect it to be back for a second season.

Good luck, guys and gals.
