LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Another reality show aimed at milking romance for ratings asks the question, "Who Wants to Marry My Mom?"
Five episodes of the NBC series, which the network said was inspired by an upcoming "Meet My Folks" special, will air in late spring. No specific air date was announced.
"The idea of kids choosing which mate is best for their single mom just seemed like a fun, natural extension of 'Meet My Folks,' " NBC executive Jeff Gaspin said Thursday.
"Meet My Folks" lets parents judge suitable dates for their children. A March 10 edition, "Meet My Kids," turns the tables by giving three adult sons the chance to pick their mom's companion for a Hawaiian vacation.
In "Who Wants to Marry My Mom?" the adult offspring of a single mother will decide which of several suitors will win the chance to vacation with their parent.
