Discovery-owned lifestyle channel TLC is prepping a new six-part series with Kate Gosselin of Kate Plus 8 fame as she searches to find love.

Kate Plus Date, produced by Figure 8 Films, follows Gosselin as she tries to find that special someone now that her sextuplets are grown and her oldest twins are off to college in the fall. Having been single for nearly a decade while devoting herself to her children full-time, Gosselin is a bit rusty in the dating department.

So she enlists expert matchmakers Rachel DeAlto and Adam LoDolce to guide her through the dating process. Over the course of the series, the matchmakers will set Gosselin up on dates with 10 bachelors. The dates she goes on feature two activities: one that’s fun and interactive, and another that’s more intimate, designed to see if the two have chemistry. Gosselin’s college-bound twins Mady and Cara offer their own two cents, but ultimately, Gosselin has the final word.

After going out with the 10 dates, Gosselin must choose just two guys to take on a second date.

Kate Plus Date bows June 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
