“Who Is Really the Most Important Woman in Every Man’s Life”?
In the history of TV dating shows, women have had to deal with rich bachelors, nerds and geeks, aging rock stars and even farmers who want a wife. But this summer, NBC will present the toughest dating challenge of all — getting past momma.
“Momma’s Boys” is a new reality dating series from Ryan Seacrest (“American Idol”) and Andrew Glassman (“Average Joe”) centering on a group of mothers who must help choose the perfect bride for their complacent sons.
“Anytime I make a decision either personally or professionally, I have to ask myself…what would my mother say?” says Seacrest. “Like it or not, I am a true Momma’s Boy. She is the most important woman in my life and she is never short of opinions. This series throws Mom right in the middle of all the drama. It’s loud, it’s wild and it’s real.”
During the run of the show, mothers and their eligible bachelor sons will be housed together with several “brides-to-be.” As the tension mounts, viewers will watch the controlling mothers search for their son’s perfect mate.
Some of the possible brides are “nice girls” — while others might not be as appealing to the mothers. As expected, rivalries are formed, drama mounts and emotion builds as crucial choices must be made.
“Momma’s Boys is going to be a loud, wild ride of emotions and drama, designed to answer the question – ‘who is really the most important woman, in a man’s life?’,” said Glassman. “For our moms and for our guys, the stakes couldn’t be higher.”
And I’ll bet the ratings will be as high as the stakes for this reality family free-for-all.
