Love Connection is coming back to TV.
The 15-episode, one-hour dating series promises “to amp up the original hit dating show for today’s audience.” It will premiere this summer.
Each episode of Love Connection will feature single men and/or women in search of romance. After the singles are sent on three blind dates, they will dish the dirt in front of a live studio audience, as Cohen brings his personal brand of fun to the series.
“Love Connection was always one of my favorite programs,” said Fleiss. “Show creator Eric Lieber was a close friend of mine. He taught me a lot about the relationship show format. The first rule -- if the cast is good, just stay out of the way.”
Love Connection originally debuted in 1983 with Chuck Woolery as its host, running for over 2,100 episodes. It ended its run in 1999.
