E! has greenlit a reality dating series starring NFL star Travis Kelce, the network announced Thursday.
“Catching Kelce,” an eight-episode series, will invite 50 women from 50 different states to compete to become Kelce’s lifelong “teammate.” The series will debut later in 2016.
While Kelce will determine who stays and who goes home in each episode, the women will decide which of their competitors gets to go on VIP dates with the Kansas City Chiefs tight end.
“On top of being a well-respected athlete, Travis has a fun-loving, over the top personality that draws people to him, and we are excited to give our viewers an up-close look at his search for love,” Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming and Development, E! said in a statement.
The show is produced by Grandma’s House Entertainment. Ben Newmark and Dan Newmark of Grandma’s House Entertainment, Scott Langerman of ACE Media, and Lauren Stevens will serve as executive producers. Adam Bold and Mike Lopez of Grandma’s House Entertainment will also produce.
