FOX has ordered a second season of Love Connection, with Andy Cohen returning as host and co-executive producer, along with exec producer Mike Fleiss (The Bachelor).
The revival of the dating show sends singles on three dates in an attempt to find true love without the online app component that plays such a large role in the dating world today. Love Connection is produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television and NEXT Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions. Fleiss, Martin Hilton, James Breen and Jason Ehrlich serve as executive producers. Cohen is a co-executive producer.
“Andy Cohen is a phenomenal host, not only because he has brought so much fun to the show but also because he truly wants these participants to find love, and that genuine level of interest enables him to elicit both touching and hilariously awkward dating moments from them,” said Rob Wade, the president of alternative entertainment and specials at Fox Broadcasting Company. “I’d also like to thank Mike Darnell and Mike Fleiss, who, along with Andy, have helped redefine this show.”
“This show fits like a glove and I can’t wait to make more love connections,” said Cohen.
“We are excited for a second season of Love Connection,” said Mike Darnell, the president of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television. “Andy Cohen is a natural provocateur and is beloved by so many for his uncanny ability to bring out the most revealing details about the couples and their dates.”
