NBC to premiere Ryan Seacrest's new 'Momma's Boys' on October 29


By Steve Rogers, 10/02/2008 

NBC has announced Momma's Boys, a new Ryan Seacrest-produced reality dating series that will follow three mothers tasked with helping their bachelor sons select the perfect woman, will premiere on Wednesday, October 29 at 9PM ET/PT.

Momma's Boys will begin with the three mothers and sons moving in with 32 single women -- some of whom will be "nice girls" the mothers will approve of, and others who won't meet the possessive yet loving moms' high standards. 

Once there, the Momma's Boys bachelors will spend six episodes narrowing the women down to their one woman -- and in the process, determine who is the most important woman in each of their lives: their mothers or their new significant others.

Momma's Boys, which was first announced back in May, was originally supposed to have debuted "on the heels" of NBC's August coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing.

"Anytime I make a decision either personally or professionally, I have to ask myself, 'What would my mother say?'  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," Seacrest said at the time. "This series throws mom right in the middle of all the drama. It's loud, it's wild and it's real."

However despite the delay, NBC still apparently has high hopes for Momma's Boys.  As part of its premiere announcement, the network also revealed it has already begun casting calls for a second season of the series.

The casting calls began in Los Angeles and San Diego on September 22 and will continue through late October with stops in Atlanta, GA; Baton Rouge, LA; Clifton, NJ; Louisville, KY; Las Vegas, NV; Madison, WI; Miami, FL; New York, NY; New Orleans, LA; Salt Lake City, UT; and Washington, DC.

Momma's Boys is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Glassman Media, with Andrew Glassman serving as executive producer alongside the American Idol host.

Ryan Seacrest Productions, which has a first-look deal with E! Entertainment, has previously produced several awards show specials and reality series for the cable network, including Denise Richards: It's Complicated, Keeping up with the Kardashians and Paradise City.  The company is also developing Bromance, a new MTV reality competition that will see men competing for the opportunity to befriend Brody Jenner.

In addition, Seacrest also serves as lead anchor for the network's E! News program. 

Unlike Seacrest, Glassman has previously worked with NBC -- most notably on Average Joe, which premiered in November 2003 and subsequently aired three more seasons on the network.
