“We are thrilled to have Eva leading the charge creatively. She has enlisted the help of the three best matchmakers in the world, each with their own philosophies and approaches to guiding singles towards love,” NBC executive Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “The show’s innovative format that uses online profiles and proven matchmakers will provide a better chance for our suitors to realize connections that will last long beyond the season finale.”
“This show is about making real connections and the ongoing search for love, something that both men and women can relate to,” Longoria added. “I am excited to be a part of such an innovative and promising format that will help these great guys find true love.”
Reports Longoria was developing Ready for Love for NBC first surfaced last month. According to the reports , celebrity matchmakers Steve Ward and Amber Kelleher will be two of the three matchmakers on the show.
Ready for Love will debut with the three matchmakers conducting a nationwide search to find a potential perfect mate for Patton, Lopez and Arguello. Each matchmaker will then select 12 girls for his or her own team, which will equal four women per bachelor. When all the matchmakers’ teams are combined, each man will have a total of 12 women to choose from.
The women will be selected only after convincing one of the three matchmakers they’d be a great fit for — and felt a real connection with — one of the men. Once the matchmakers’ teams are established, the three groups will live in separate houses and receive personalized advice and mentoring from their given matchmaker.
At the end of each week, all the participants will gather onstage in front of a live audience, watch the dates and then receive feedback from the matchmakers. The women who fail to make a connection with the men will be sent home. Ready for Love’s finale episode will feature the three men each choosing their final woman and conclude with each couple deciding whether they wish to break-up, get engaged, get married, or simply continue dating.
Ready for Love is being produced by Longoria’s UnbeliEVAble Entertainment production company along with Renegade 83 and Universal Television. Longoria, former The Bachelor producer Jason Ehrlich, Greg Goldman, David Garfinkle, and Jay Renfroe are serving as executive producers.
