NETWORK GREENLIGHTS DOCU-SERIES WITH 'THE BACHELOR''S MOST RECENT ENGAGED COUPLE BEN HIGGINS AND LAUREN BUSHNELL

Continuing to grow its original programming slate, Freeform has greenlit a "Bachelor" spin-off series titled "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After" starring the series' most recent happily engaged couple, former Bachelor Ben Higgins and fiancée Lauren Bushnell, announced today by Karey Burke, executive vice president, Programming and Development, Freeform.

The new reality series will follow the happy couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their brand-new life together while navigating the real world after the splendor of "The Bachelor"'s exotic dates and fantasy suites has ended.

During the show some fan favorites from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" will stop by to visit and share their own advice on life after the show. The series is scheduled to air in October.

"Ben and Lauren are the biggest 'Bachelor' couple of the last 10 years," said Burke. "Their romance captured everyone's attention, and we are delighted to continue their story on Freeform."

The series will be produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jason Ehrlich will serve as the executive producers. Jack Mori is co-executive producer.
