Bow Wow will help singles find love on BET’s upcoming reality dating series After Happily Ever After.
The eight-episode series features people who were previously in long-term relationships that ended in divorce or separation, and now their exes are playing matchmaker, BET recently announced.
During each episode, Bow Wow will throw a singles party with a group of potential prospects for the daters.
But here’s the catch, the events will be attended by the exes so they can determine who might be best suited for their former partners. The exes will invite one of the prospects to move into a house to date their former partner for 48 hours. When the time is up, the dater will decide if they want to keep the prospect or send them back to the singles party.
The series is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions for BET.
“This unique series is created for men and women looking for their second act love story while taking into consideration that they are often still entangled with their exes because of their history, their children, and their extended families,” Bunim/Murray President Julie Pizzi said in a statement.
This isn’t Bow Wow’s first time working with BET. From 2012-2014, he hosted the network’s video countdown series 106 & Park. The network says the new show marks a homecoming for Bow Wow.
“This show promises to be full of surprises, twists, and turns that will leave viewers asking for more,” said Tiffany Lea Williams, executive vice president of BET unscripted programming said in a statement. “We are also thrilled to welcome Bow Wow home to BET and to partner with Bunim/Murray Productions, who has been creating unscripted hits for three decades and always delivers their latest guilty pleasures to viewers.”
Bow Wow previously served as an executive producer on the WE tv show Growing Up Hip Hop. In 2020, he made it to the finale as the Frog in Fox’s The Masked Singer.
