Fox lines up “Riot,” “Marry ‘Harry’”
Fox has set a late May airdate for I Wanna Marry ‘Harry,’ a Bachelor-style reality series from Zig Zag and Ryan Seacrest Productions that sees 12 American women competing for the affections of a Prince Harry impersonator – who they believe to be the real British prince.
Billed as a “surprising dating show” by the U.S. broadcaster, the series will follow the Prince Harry impersonator as he “courts each of the ladies, taking them on romantic dates worthy of a princess and trying to make some version of their fairytales come true,” according to the net.
The series, which previously had a working title of Dream Date, will premiere May 27 at 8 p.m. EST.
Elsewhere, Fox has set a May 13 9 p.m. EST premiere date for Riot, the game show formerly title Slide Show.
The series, from Shine America and exec producer Steve Carell, is hosted by Australian comedian Rove McManus, and features celebrities and comedians facing unpredictable song, dance and sketch challenges, often while navigating the show’s set, which is tilted at a 22 degree angle.
Finally, the broadcaster is bringing back Kitchen Nightmares for a sixth season on April 11, while MasterChef returns for a fifth season on May 19. Also returning is So You Think You Can Dance, which kicks off its 11th season on May 28, and Hotel Hell, which launches its sophomore season on July 21.
