Viacom-owned cable net Logo has greenlit a gay dating competition series hosted by former *NSYNC vocalist Lance Bass (pictured).
Produced by LA-based prodco Brian Graden Media, Finding Prince Charming will feature 13 suitors living together as they vie for the attention and affection of “one of the nation’s most eligible gay heartthrobs.”
Each episode of the series will see one participant eliminated until the heartthrob picks one ideal mate to commit to an exclusive relationship.
Brian Graden, Dave Mace, Fred Birckhead and Nick Murray serve as executive producers for Brian Graden Media alongside Logo’s Chris McCarthy, Pamela Post and Stevenson Greene. Jen Passovoy serves as series producer.
The series is currently in production and is expected to air on the network this fall.
Brian Graden Media’s production stable includes such series as E!’s Men of the Strip and Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding Special; Current TV’s 4th and Forever; VH1′s Walk of Shame Shuttle; MTV’s Todrick; and Emmy Award-winning series HitRECord on TV starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Pivot.
“Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture,” said Pamela Post, senior VP of original programming for Logo, in a statement. “Finding Prince Charming will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”
