Andy Cohen is going from Bravo to primetime with the reboot of the beloved 1980’s gameshow Love Connection. The 15-episode run will air this summer on Fox, according to CEO Gary Newman. The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss will executive produce and Andy Cohen will serve as co-executive producer.
The one-hour show is based on the original program that aired from 1983-1994 and features single men and women who are searching for romance. The single men and women will g out on three blind dates and then rehash the highs and lows in front of a live audience.
“I was a huge fan of the original ‘Love Connection,’ and hosting the new version allows me to do one of the things I love most: meddling in people’s personal lives,” said Cohen. [Variety]
