Stars of 'Manhattan Love Story' dish on whether their characters would ever use Tinder

In a world with Tinder, OkCupid and Coffee Meets Bagel, it’s actually really hard to have a true, traditional blind date – you can usually do some cyber-stalking to find out more about the set-up. But that’s where the new show “Manhattan Love Story” starts. Dana, played by Analeigh Tipton, and Peter, played by Jake McDorman, meet on a blind date and really don’t hit it off. The best part – you can hear both of the characters’ thoughts.

“Its almost like doing a different version of your character when you’re doing the internal monologue because it’s your private thoughts so you have no ego, you have no pride. You’re not worried about what people think about it so it’s almost your character’s inner child in a lot of ways,” said McDorman.

Fusion sat down with the two leads to learn more about the new show, “Manhattan Love Story.”

“Manhattan Love Story” premieres Tuesday at 8:30 PM on ABC. ABC and Fusion share the parent company, Disney.
