Fox Sets Launch for Faux Prince Harry Dating Series, Shifts 'Gang Related'
A trio of Gordon Ramsay's unscripted series and "So You Think You Can Dance" also get premiere dates, with "Enlisted" likely returning to the schedule.
Fox has set its summer schedule, which includes a new dating series called I Wanna Marry "Harry" and a shift for Gang Related.
I Wanna Marry "Harry", which pits 12 single American women competing for "Prince Harry's" affections, will launch Tuesday, May 27, at 8 p.m.
Here's the official logline: "Summer love is in the air, as an average English 'bloke' is given the royal treatment and an upper crust makeover before meeting 12 single American women searching for Prince Charming. Will he be able to convince them he’s regal? And if he does, will they fall for the crown, or fall in love with the real him? Join 'Harry' as he courts each of the ladies, taking them on romantic dates worthy of a princess and trying to make some version of their fairy tales come true."
The Steve Carell-produced Riot (formerly Slideshow) will debut Tuesday, May 13, at 9 p.m. following the season finale of Glee. Australian talk show host Rove McManus leads the series, which "features the nation's funniest celebrities and comedians facing unpredictable song, dance and sketch challenges, often while navigating the show's trademark one-of-a-kind set, tilted at a 22-degree angle."
Scripted drama Gang Related, originally set for a Tuesday, May 20 launch, will now debut Thursday, May 22, at 9 p.m. Encores will air Fridays at 9 p.m. beginning May 23.
Three of Gordon Ramsay's unscripted efforts also have received premiere dates: Kitchen Nightmares (Friday, April 11, at 9 p.m.), Masterchef (Monday, May 19, at 8 p.m.) and Hotel Hell (Monday, July 21, at 9 p.m.).
So You Think You Can Dance, meanwhile, will kick off its 11th season with a two-hour premiere Wednesday, May 28, at 8 p.m.
They join previously announced spring/summer series on the network's schedule: Surviving Jack (Thursday, March 27, at 9:30 p.m.) and 24: Live Another Day (Monday, May 5, at 8 p.m.). Fox indicates that Enlisted, whose last original airs April 11, will return to the schedule.
