HOT FROM FOX...

GEORGE LOPEZ TO HOST "TAKE ME OUT" DEBUTING THURSDAY, JUNE 7 ON FOX

Multi-talented entertainer George Lopez will host TAKE ME OUT, the provocative and unpredictable new dating series premiering Thursday, June 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. TAKE ME OUT, based on the hugely successful international format, is a fast-paced, dynamic new series featuring 30 single women searching for a match and several brave bachelors who must make the ultimate first impression.

With an extensive career that encompasses television series, film, and stand-up comedy, Lopez will play matchmaker between the 30 female contestants and the men hoping for the chance to take one lucky lady out on an ultimate dream date.

"I am thrilled to be hosting such an entertaining new series," said Lopez. "Anything can happen on a show like TAKE ME OUT and I'm looking forward to the excitement."

"George's amazing energy, spirit and incredible comedic timing make him the perfect host for TAKE ME OUT," said executive producer Jeff Apploff.

Filmed in front of a studio audience and comprised of four rounds, TAKE ME OUT begins with a group of 30 beautiful, single women in search of finding a match made in heaven. Every week, the women are introduced to several bachelors one by one. Each woman stands at a lighted podium with a switch that controls her fate for a date: if she thinks it's a match, she keeps her light on; if her attraction has been short-circuited, then it's lights out and she waits for the next potential Mr. Right.

As the hopeful mate reveals more and more about himself, the women continue to turn their lights out as they lose interest - leaving only the flirty females still fascinated by him. At this point, the gentleman takes control of the game and eliminates the ladies by turning out the lights of those women he's just not into. During the last round, the bachelor will pose one final question to the two remaining women and will choose a winner to join him on a romantic fantasy date. Meanwhile, the remaining 29, plus one new woman, return during the next game for another chance at finding the guy who will light up their lives.
