Lance Bass has been set to host a new dating competition series on Logo that will feature all gay competitors, The Wrap has learned.
Logo has greenlit “Finding Prince Charming,”which will feature 13 suitors, all housed together, who compete to win the heart of one eligible gay bachelor.
“‘Finding Prince Charming’ will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.” Bass is best known for his time as a member of the musical group *NSync, which has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide.
Most recently, Bass served as a daily contributing panelist on “The Meredith Vieira Show,” and hosted the daily Sirius XM pop culture radio show, “Dirty Pop.” “Finding Prince Charming” is produced by Brian Graden Media.
Brian Graden and Dave Mace serve as executive producers along with Fred Birckhead and Nick Murray.
Chris Mc Carthy, Pamela Post and Stevenson Greene are executive producers for Logo and Jen Passovoy serves as producer.
Think about this: There is a generation of TV viewers alive today who will never have known a time when reality-show casting was any less inclusive and diverse than it is today: Always getting more representative of the world around us, more real.
