According to Variety, the show will be shot using a soap opera theme and feature narration by Sabato as he and contestants participate in various challenges such as replicating steamy love scenes or skydiving in a gown.
"[Sabato is] the 'fantasy man' for many of our viewers, and now that fantasy can become a reality," VH1 vice president Jeff Olde told Variety.
The show is expected to begin shooting in late-2008 and will be produced by Ish Entertainment, the recently-formed company headed by former VH1 progamming executive Michael Hirshorn.
