Labor of Love preview

A new dating show will see a former Bachelor contestant search for the perfect father-to-be for her future children.

Kristy Katzmann, who appeared on The Bachelor‘s 11th season in 2007, is the protagonist of the upcoming Fox programme – to be hosted by Sex and the City's Kristin Davis.​

A newly released synopsis describes the 41-year-old as a “smart, successful and beautiful career woman who seems to have it all – that is, except the one thing she wants the most”.

“Like so many women in America today, she is ready to have a child and start a family, but has yet to meet the potential father of her children,” the show’s description adds.

“Kristy will be matched with 15 sexy, sophisticated and like-minded men, who are ready to let their paternal sides shine.”

Each week, the cohort of potential dads will undertake challenges designed to “put their parenting and partnership skills to the test”. Katzmann will eliminate contestants based on how they fare.

“After eight weeks of intuitive and hilarious challenges, breathtakingly romantic dates and some heartwarming, yet borderline awkward gestures from the men, mother-to-be Kristy, with the help of Kristin as a sounding board, will decide if she has found the man with whom she’d like to settle down and start a family or if she’d rather continue on the path to motherhood on her own,” the synopsis states.

“When I first heard the premise of Labor of Love, I knew I had to be a part of this show,” Davis said in a statement.

“I believe every woman should feel empowered to go after their dreams, whether it be professional or personal, and to be at Kristy’s side as she took her future into her own hands was truly exciting.”

Labor of Love will begin on 21 May on Fox.
