FOX has announced that "Married By America" their new, unscripted reality series from the creators of the hit series “Joe Millionaire,” will launch with a three-hour premiere over two nights. The first two hours will air on Monday, March 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) followed by a one-hour episode on Wednesday, March 5 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). One-hour episodes will begin airing in their regular Monday (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) time period on March 10 - the night the series’ couples meet for the very first time and get engaged.
This series follows five singles who put their trust in the American viewing public to play matchmaker. These men and women and their potential spouses are successful in every aspect of their lives, except at finding a mate by conventional means. Viewers will get a chance to vote by phone for three potential couples after the two-hour show on Monday, March 3, and then for two more couples after the one-hour show on Wednesday, March 5.
With the help of relationship experts, five potential mates will be handpicked for each of these men and women but they won’t meet before their engagement. Their friends and family will analyze each of these potential partners, discuss their lives, interests and intentions and winnow them down. Then, the home audience will be given the opportunity to weigh in and vote by phone to make the final decision as to which of these partners is the perfect match. Once face-to-face, these new couples will embark on a journey toward matrimony in hopes that they have indeed found their one true love.
MARRIED BY AMERICA is a Rocket Science Laboratories, Inc. production. Ted Haimes, Chris Cowan and Jean-Michel Michenaud serve as executive producers.
