Ryan Seacrest, NBC team up for 'Momma's Boy'
Series is planned for early fallNBC is teaming with "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest for a new reality series where mothers choose brides for their sons.
In "Momma's Boy," a group of "controlling mothers," their eligible "complacent sons" and several brides-to-be live together under one roof. Some potential brides are "nice girls" while others, as the press release states, "might not be as appealing to the mothers."
The series is planned for early fall, set to launch right after NBC's presentation of the Summer Olympics in Beijing. NBC is one of several networks that might launch shows from their fall schedules earlier than usual this year.
"Anytime I make a decision either personally or professionally, I have to ask myself...what would my mother say?," said Seacrest. "Like it or not, I am a true Momma's Boy. She is the most important woman in my life and she is never short of opinions. This series throws Mom right in the middle of all the drama. It's loud, it's wild and it's real."
Seacrest is executive producing the series with Andrew Glassman ("Average Joe"). His Ryan Seacrest Productions has a first-look deal with E! and is currently shooting the second season of the hit E! series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
NBC has already announced its fall schedule and its unclear which slot "Boy" will take over.
