International Reality Series Phenomenon From Producers of "American Idol" Mixes One Country Man With Ten City Women To See If Love Will Bloom

March 10, 2008 (Burbank, California) - "Farmer Wants a Wife," the international reality series sensation from FremantleMedia North America, makes its U.S. debut on Wednesday, April 30 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), following The CW's hit series "America's Next Top Model." This new comedic reality series is designed to help one farm boy find the city girl of his dreams.

"Farmer Wants a Wife" has already established itself as a smash hit in numerous countries across Europe, ranking #1 in its timeslot in The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Finland, France, Germany and Australia.

The show brings ten city women to one charming, hard-working farmer who is happy with his life except for one thing - he's lacking romance and wondering if he might find happiness and excitement with a woman from the city. Through a series of challenges, group activities, shocking eliminations and cozy dates, the uptown women will soon see how they match up with a down-home guy on the path to true love.

"Farmer Wants a Wife" is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Super Delicious partners Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper and Joanna Vernetti are executive producers. The show is based on the format "Farmer Wants a Wife," from an idea in the British edition of Country Living magazine, in collaboration with FremantleMedia.
