EMMY AWARD WINNER ANDY COHEN TO HOST REVIVAL OF ICONIC RELATIONSHIP SHOW "LOVE CONNECTION," PREMIERING IN SUMMER 2017 ON FOX

Relationship Show Guru Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor") to Executive-Produce; Cohen to Serve as Co-Executive Producer

Emmy Award winner Andy Cohen ("Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen") will host LOVE CONNECTION, a new one-hour series that amps up the original hit dating show for today's audiences. FOX has ordered 15 episodes of the new unscripted series, to be executive-produced by Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor"). Additionally, Cohen will serve as a co-executive producer.

From Fleiss' NEXT Entertainment, Warner Horizon Television and Telepictures Productions, LOVE CONNECTION is set to premiere on FOX in Summer 2017.

Each hour of LOVE CONNECTION will feature single men and/or women in search of romance. After the singles are sent on three blind dates, they will dish the dirt in front of a live studio audience, as Cohen, the well-known provocateur, brings his personal brand of audacious fun to the series.

"I was a huge fan of the original 'Love Connection,' and hosting the new version allows me to do one of the things I love most: meddling in people's personal lives," said Cohen.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to bring this incredibly beloved and iconic show to primetime network television. The combination of the insanely talented Andy Cohen and the undisputed king of relationship shows Mike Fleiss is absolute magic...add in the perfect home of FOX...and I think we have a match made in heaven," said Mike Darnell, President, Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television.

"'Love Connection' was always one of my favorite programs," added Fleiss. "Show creator Eric Lieber was a close friend of mine. He taught me a lot about the relationship show format. The first rule - if the cast is good, just stay out of the way."

LOVE CONNECTION will be produced by NEXT Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and Telepictures Productions. Mike Fleiss ("The Bachelor"), Martin Hilton ("The Bachelor"), James Breen (SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, "American Idol") and Jason Ehrlich ("The Bachelor") will serve as executive producers. Cohen will serve as a co-executive producer.
