Bow Wow Hosting New Dating Show on BET

Two years ago rapper Bow Wow publicly pitched his ideas for BET programming [click here if you missed that]. 

Looks like somebody was listening... 

From Deadline
BET is launching After Happily Ever After, a new dating series from Bunim/Murray Prods that’s planned for this fall. Hosted by Bow Wow, the unscripted show will ask exes from a divorce or separation to play matchmaker for their former partners to help them move on and find love once again.
Filmed in Kentucky, After Happily Ever After marks Bunim/Murray Productions’ first unscripted series for the network. Additional casting news, including a few celebrity daters, will be revealed in the coming weeks.
On each installment of the eight-episode series, Bow Wow will throw a singles party with a new group of potential prospects for the daters. These parties, however, are only attended by the ex-spouses so that they can determine who might be best suited for their former partner. The exes will invite one of the prospects to move into the house to date their former spouse for 48 hours. At the end of the two days, the dater will then decide if they will keep the prospect or send them back to the singles pool and have another opportunity to meet someone new.
