Singer Lance Bass, formerly of the boy band *NSYNC, will host a gay dating competition, “Finding Prince Charming,” scheduled to debut on the cable channel Logo this fall.
The LGBT-focused network said Tuesday that the series, in which 13 suitors share a house and compete for an eligible gay bachelor, is already shooting.
Bass, 37, has barely commented about the show on social media other than to post on Facebook, “Get ready for ‘Finding Prince Charming’ — coming soon to LogoTV!!” He was a contributor to the recently canceled syndicated daytime talk show “The Meredith Vieira Show,” and from 2012 through February hosted the SiriusXM daily two-hour radio series “Dirty Pop.” Bass will be one of the celebrities in Fox’s upcoming dinner-party competition, “My Kitchen Rules,” slated for midseason.
Brian Graden Media, the production company for “Finding Prince Charming,” has done series and specials for VH1, MTV and others, including “Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding Special” for E! Bass married actor Michael Turchin on Dec. 20, 2014, in Los Angeles, with actresses Jamie-Lynn Sigler and JoAnna Garcia Swisher officiating. The special ran Feb. 5, 2015.
“Logo has a long history of showcasing LGBTQ-focused stories with memorable characters that transcend pop culture,” the channel’s programming executive Pamela Post said in a statement. “ ‘Finding Prince Charming’ will take viewers on a whirlwind journey through modern love and relationships in a way that only Logo can do.”
