Ryan Lochte, Kevin Jonas E! Series Get Late April Premiere Dates
Ryan Lochte has landed on E!'s schedule.
The cable network has set a Sunday, April 21, premiere date for the Olympic swimmer's docuseries, What Would Ryan Lochte Do? The show will bow at 10 p.m., followed by a second season of the Ryan Seacrest-produced Married to Jonas, starring Kevin and Danielle Jonas. They are the latest additions to E!'s year-round Sunday night reality block, which at other points during the year features the various Kardashian series.
The six-episode Lochte effort comes more than half a year after the swimming phenom broke out at the Summer Olympics, becoming one of the most talked about athletes in London. His E! series will showcase his day-to-day activities in and out of the pool, with a focus on his love life, his family and his friendships.
In making the series pickup announcement earlier this year, E! president Suzanne Kolb said of the Gainesville, Fla.-based athlete: "He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun. Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: They want to be him, sleep with him or mother him.”
For its part, Jonas will once again offer a window into the Jonases' lives together as a newly married couple while still accommodating the needs of their very close -- and very different -- families. A pending Jonas Brothers world tour as well as pressure to have a baby will be explored in the unscripted effort's second season.
