Showtime’s Polyamory: Season 2 in the Midwest?

By Kendra Holliday | December 8, 2012

Today I spoke with Natalia, creator/director of Showtime’s Polyamory: Married & Dating. She told me they’re hoping to film Season 2 in the Midwest! They want to show that polyamory is not just a coastal trend, but thriving right here in the Bible Belt. It sure is – I know TONS of awesome polyfolk!

Please take a look at her message below. If this is something you might be interested in, drop her a line asap!

Showtime’s Polyamory: Married and Dating

Hello Community,

Thank you all for your amazing support with the show, it means the world to me.

I’m reaching out in hopes of speaking with poly families interested in sharing their story with me.

I’m looking for polyamorous families that are charismatic, healthy, active; can be unmarried but practicing poly (don’t all have to live together); bisexuality is welcome in both male and female partners; and are open to sharing all aspects of their love lives. Between the ages of 25-50 would be ideal. Diversity and flexible schedule would be great!

As I think you have seen, I am a person of integrity and my intent is to portray polyamourists as loving, mature adults who are capable of carrying on multiple loving relationships in a society that has programmed us for monogamy. I’ve had so many people reach out to me, mono people struggling in their relationships telling me the show changed their lives for the better. Despite what Dr. Drew said, I believe 100% that Polyamory is a sustainable way of living — and I would like to continue the pro-Polyamory conversation in the mainstream.

If you are interested in speaking with me, I would love to hear from you! Email me at natstertv (at) yahoo (dot) com .  It would help if you’ve seen the series to get a sense of what is expected. Also, I would greatly appreciate a picture along with your email so I can keep track of who’s who.

Thanks again, much love to everyone, I look forward to speaking with some of you!

– Natalia

perhaps it would be interesting to dedicate the series to poly people who are over fifty and are “beyond marriage” so to speak, in the sense that, having successfully raised their children, are in that time of life when they feel especially experimental and free. how do they organize their poly lives? that would be an interesting question to explore. juggling employment, middle-age, exes, adult children, retirement prospects, aging parents. how does all that pan out in one’s poly life? also, in this group one finds quite a bit of geographic and cultural diversity. just a suggestion. i already expressed my availability to Natalia. y me imagino que ela sabe que yo hablo espanol. gracias y saludos.

The last show seemed to have a lot of inflated drama. I agree that perhaps older, settled poly-folk might be interesting. However if we have less drama, wouldn’t things be trumped up to make “television”?

I totally agree with you Ra, however that doesn’t make for “good TV.” We are in a polyfidelitous triad and contacted Natalia, but got the sense that we are too “boring” for the show. We are all middle aged (late 40s/early 50s), all our kids are grown, we have no drama, no jealousy, and no BFs or GFs coming and going! Who wants to see that, when there’s drama, fighting, lots of nudity and sex, etc.?!? Sheesh! LOL

I would LOVE to see another season! My husband and I had been “swingers” for a few years and only occasionally discussed becoming polyamorous before the show. After seeing the show, we decided that it was definitely something that we were both wanting to do, and we desperately need to see how other poly families operate, find mates, deal with their families/friends, etc. Can’t wait!
