Now, Gottfried and her team have partnered with the Jewish Entertainment Network of Los Angeles as a way to find to sponsors and advertisers for future episodes.
I was thrilled to be able to speak with Gottfried about why she created the “Friends”-esque series, what her weirdest date was, and the least favorite part of her day: What prompted you to create your new comedy series? I’m a big fan of the Israeli TV show “Srugim” which was an inspiration to me in creating “Soon By You.” I also just wanted to see Orthodox Jews like myself portrayed authentically in the media and have fun with the concept of dating in the Modern Orthodox world.
This online Jewish matchmaking approach gives members a unique dating edge.
With matchmakers available both locally and internationally for personal interviews.
