FOX has set a July premiere for the new plus-sized dating show "More to Love" and announced open casting for the new series.
The network announced on Monday (April 6) that "More to Love" will premiere on Tuesday, July 28 in the 9 p.m. ET hour. As always with FOX, premiere dates are subject to change, especially in this case, where stars of the show are yet to be found.
"More to Love" is produced by Mike Fleiss ("Are You Hot?") and follows a "husky hunk," who romances a number of "confident and secure plus-size women."
Interested singles are invited to head over the the casting website at MoretoLoveCasting.com, where we learn that the show's tag line will be "Real women. Real sizes. Real love." Perhaps because going through the casting process is no guarantee of either making it on the show or finding love, the site has a prominent ad for a Big & Beautiful singles dating site.
The website asks questions like "What does the phrase 'real woman' mean to you?" and "Has your weight ever become an issue in a past relationship?" and "How do you feel about the entertainment industry's standard of beauty?"
There were also be open casting calls at Lane Bryant stores across the country in cities like Philadelphia, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. A complete list of cities is available on the casting website.
Remember how we said that with FOX, all premiere dates are subject to change? We weren't kidding. Slipped in at the bottom of the "More to Love" release is the entirely unrelated information that the new internationally produced medical drama "Mental" has moved its premiere date to Friday, May 29, pushed back by a week. "Don't Forget the Lyrics" will still have its scheduled summer return on May 22.
