Bow Wow is launching a new dating series on BET after pitching his idea to the Black Entertainment TV channel.
The new dating series, titled After Happily Ever After, will be produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and will debut this fall. The show will ask exes and divorcees to play matchmaker for their former partners.
"This unique series is created for men and women looking for their second act love story while taking into consideration that they are often still entangled with their exes because of their history, their children, and their extended families," said Bunim/Murray President Julie Pizzi. "On After Happily Ever After, ex-couples who genuinely loved each other can now work together to give their ex another shot at finding a life-long partner."
The eight-episode series will be filmed in Kentucky and will feature celebrity guests who recently broke up with their partners.
In each episode, Bow Wow will throw a singles party with the ex-spouses or partners so they can pick and choose who will be a suitable partner for their exes.
The exes will invite the contestant to move into the house with their former spouse or boyfriend for 48 hours to see if there is a love match.
At the end of the 48 hours, the former spouse or ex-boyfriend will decide if they will continue to date the person their ex chose, or if he will dismiss her and allow his ex to choose someone new for him.
The series marks Bow Wow's first return to BET in 8 years.
Question: Will you tune in to watch After Happily Ever After?
"Ken", a retired military man and single father, recalled his disastrous first date on Bravo TV's "Love Match Atlanta."
His date interrogated him about arriving in an Uber, and she demanded to know if he was willing to get a vasectomy.
Ken said it was the worst date of his life!
Love Match Atlanta's first season follows successful matchmakers who use their unique skills to help high-profile women find love.
According to Bravo's website, the matchmakers "balance the drama in their own lives as they find love for high-profile singles who are on the hunt for the ultimate relationship and willing to pay top dollar."
In episode 7, matchmaker Shae Primus' client, her sorority sister, proves to be a major challenge.

"Ladies and gentlemen this is what chasing your career and getting too old for the dating market looks like. She's callused, manly [overly assertive]. She said to that brother 'You're on the clock.' She's looking for a subordinate, lol."
"She had no emotional intelligence in knowing that he was uncomfortable during that time. No self awareness: Me, me, me, me..."

"She's a solid 2, grilling dude like this!... Yeah she needs to buy a dog, she dying single."

Rachel Lindsay, left, claims ESPN host Sage Steele was "thrilled" when she didn't choose a Black man on ABC's "Bachelorette."
Lindsay made the remarks on the Higher Learning podcast with co-host, former TMZ staffer Van Lathan.
Lindsay, 36, hinted that Steele, 48, is a bourgeois biracial who is only Black when it's convenient for her.
Lindsay, who is Black, said the incident occurred about 4 years ago when she met Steele at ESPN. She said the encounter with Steele left her feeling like she was in the Twilight Zone.
"I like Sage," said Lindsay, adding that Steele is "problematic".
"She's a woman of color who had a long career in the media and I'm aspiring to this but then I'm listening to you and the first thing you say to me is how thrilled you are that I didn't choose Black. And I'm like… who is this woman?. Since then I've started to learn more about how problematic she can be."
Lindsay shared a video clip on Twitter. She captioned the video: "Y'all want to hear about the first time I met #SageSteele? #TrueStory."
Steele was temporarily suspended from ESPN's SportsCenter over comments she made about former President Barack Obama's race. She also disparaged ESPN's parent company Disney's vaccine mandate, calling it "sick" and "scary."
HBO Max dropped the trailer for its new reality TV series "FBoy Island," hosted by comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, 37.
The series follows three sexy women - Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig - who are joined by 24 men on a secluded island.
Among the 24 men are 12 "nice guys" and 12 self-professed f**k boys. According to Urbandictionary.com, a "f**k boy" is a player who is only interested in a relationship for sex.
The women's mission is to attempt to find love on the island, preferably with one of the nice guys. But nice guys usually finish last because American women are only attracted to thugs and f**k boys -- despite what women say about wanting a "good man."
According to the NY Post, "By the episode 10 finale, it will be revealed to the audience and the women which men are the nice guys and which were the FBoys all along."
"FBOY Island" premieres July 29 on HBO Max.
Watch the trailer below.

Contestants Carlton and Diamond Jack did not make it to the alter after he confessed that he was bisexual.
Diamond was upset that Carlton kept his secret lifestyle from her. According to theJasmineBrand.com, Carlton and Diamond forgave each other on the reunion special.
Carlton's confession didn’t bring him the attention and press coverage that he had hoped for. Oprah and Ellen Degeneres didn't call him to book interviews.
He went off the deep end when the Black LGBT and T media accused him of using the bisexual lifestyle for attention.
The overly emotional Carlton took to social media to complain that his "celebrity friends” abandoned him after he came out.
Feeling alone and depressed, he wrote a series of suicidal notes to manipulate his social media followers into expressing false sympathy for him.
In a goodbye message on his Instagram story, Morton wrote:
"Today is one of those days where I don't want to be here. I feel extremely alone and unsupported. I've cried for help since Feb. 13. No one cares."
In another post, he wrote: "Goodbye everyone."
As a result of his Diva antics, the hashtag #BisexualMenExist trended on Twitter.com.
