Fox orders Zig Zag’s Prince Harry lookalike dating series

DD-gent_regclothingRFox has greenlit I Wanna Marry ‘Harry’, a new reality show in which US women compete for the attention of a man they believe is Britain’s Prince Harry.

That person is in fact a lookalike of the British royal.

The idea for the show came from Danny Fenton (pictured), CEO of Zig Zag Productions.

The lookalike-dating-reality series, which was shot in the UK, is a coproduction between Zig Zag and RSP.

Fox has greenlit the show as part of its spring/summer schedule. It has given it a Tuesday 8pm slot and it will bow on May 27.

Fox’s former reality boss Mike Darnell commissioned I Wanna Marry ‘Harry’, but it has since been overseen by his successor Simon Andreae, who has ordered international reality shows Utopia and Release the Hounds.
