Carrboro was not selected for the BBC and Oprah Winfrey Network’s new reality show “Lovetown, USA,” according to a Town of Carrboro press release.
In a phone conference with Economic and Community Development Director Annette Stone, the BBC producers said that “there was not a single thing the town could have done differently to be selected,” according to the press release.
Carrboro was notified that it was being considered for the match-making show Nov. 4, and held events to try to bring the show to town.
Stone said in an email that the town plans to capitalize on its “15 minutes of fame” by declaring February “Love Month” in Carrboro.
