Press notes for Bad Dates state, "Haley Walker is a Texan in New York City with a top-tier restaurant to run, a teenage daughter to raise, and a dating scene to navigate. From the privacy of her bedroom, she dishes about her hilarious dating adventures. With charm and quirky grace, Haley takes us through a motley array of suitors, looking for the man who will fit her like a great pair of shoes."
