March 31, 2010


In our last edition of MIPTV Picks, you’ll recall being introduced to Undercover Princes, a four-part series featuring three bachelor princes from various international locales. Looking for love in all the wrong places, the three princes picked up and moved to England, where they went incognito in an effort to find someone who would love them, and not their riches. In this sequel series, three princesses from around the globe (Aaliya, Sheillah and Xenia) come to the UK in search of Mr. Right. If this series does as well as its predecessor, the producers may want to take a hint from Undercover Boss and move up the royalty chain for its next installment – Undercover Queen, anyone?
