Down for Love is the first Netflix dating reality show to feature participants that are living with Down Syndrome.

The show has become a hit for fans of reality TV and many people are saying that it is the most honest and heartfelt dating show that has ever been shown.

The premise of the show is pretty much in line with other similar properties, with people meeting up for dates and viewers being able to follow their journey.

The show would go on to win an award and be praised by agencies such as the New Zealand Down Syndrome Association which worked closely with the producers of the show, making sure that everything was done to make the participants comfortable throughout the process.

The five-part series follows six participants as they date and attempt to find love.

There are ups and downs in the season, and many people have praised the production as it is an honest and heartfelt look at dating, without a lot of the usual often staged and manipulated shows that exist in this media landscape.
