Logo is jumping into the dating-show arena with Finding Prince Charming, a gay-themed Bachelor-esque series hosted by Lance Bass.
The program — set to debut this fall — “will include 13 charming and gorgeous suitors, all housed together, who compete to win the heart of one of the nation’s most eligible gay heartthrob. The sexy suitors grapple to stand out from the crowd all hoping for a moment of intimate connection, romance and, perhaps, true love. One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.”
Pamela Post, SVP of Original Programming for Logo, said in a statement, “Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture. Finding Prince Charming will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”
Back in 2003, Bravo broke ground with the premiere of the first-of-its-kind gay dating series Boy Meets Boy. The twist? Unbeknownst to the “leading man,” several of the suitors were straight. The show lasted for only one six-episode season.
