The show premieres on August 7 at 10 p.m. on ABC, streaming and on-demand. It is produced by Nomad Entertainment, with Emmy nominee Grant Kahler serving as showrunner.

ABC is also gearing up to launch the fifth installment of Bachelor in Paradise this summer.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, the series is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television.
