EXCLUSIVE: American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is taking on a new role for Fox — a matchmaker. I’ve learned that the network has quietly greenlighted Dream Date, a dating competition series from Ryan Seacrest Prods. Details about the top-secret project — now shooting on location — are scarce, but I hear it revolves around a group of women looking for love and features a celebrity element. There is no airdate yet but a late fall/midseason bow is a possibility. While Seacrest is best known for his stint on a reality competition series, Fox’s Idol, the new show marks a rare competition series for Ryan Seacrest Prods. which has built its unscripted brand on docu-reality series like the Keeping Up With The Kardashians franchise and Shahs Of Sunset. On screen, Seacrest next is hosting NBC’s live competition series Million Second Quiz.
