'Labor of Love' Season 1: Release date, plot, host, contestants and all you need to know about the pregnancy dating show
The unscripted show will follow Kristy Katzmann on her journey to find potential romance and if things fall in place, embark on a journey of motherhood with one of the 15 contestants
'Labor of Love' focuses on walking the viewers along the journey of one woman towards a potential love life. Not just that, viewers will also see the process of her treading the path towards motherhood as she looks for a perfect partner with someone who she can bring new life into the world.
'Labor of Love' releases on Thursday, May 21, 2020.
The show will follow Kristy Katzmann, who starred in 'The Bachelor' Season 11. The 41-year-old is smart, highly successful, and equally beautiful but there's one joy that still evades the person who has everything to her disposal: a child. She hasn't met someone with whom she can explore parenthood with and in the show, she will be matched with 15 men who are ready to let their paternal sides shine.
Each week, the hopeful fathers-to-be will have to prove their mettle while performing challenges aimed specifically to put their parenting and partnership skills to the test. The ones who prove themselves worthy will advance to the next week and the ones who fall short of doing so will be notified by Kristy that she doesn't see herself starting a family with them. The option of keeping all 15 of them till the very end is also something that could happen on the show.
After eight weeks of challenges and romantic dates, Kristy 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.
To ease out the stress of making a decision of choosing a partner and a baby father, Katzmann will be seen relying heavily on an operating system called 'The Big Board of Men' for the same. Designed specifically for her personality, it was made to prioritize what Katzmann was looking for. She has access to it at all times and goes back to it during the show to filter through the men and go through their profiles.
Famous for playing 'Charlotte' on 'Sex and the City' franchise, Davis will be seen acting as a BFF-slash-host on 'Labor of Love'.
Davis is an adoptive mother of two and about being associated with the show, she stated: "When I first heard the premise of Labor of Love, I knew I had to be a part of this show. 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.”
She also said in an Instagram post that the show is “quite fun and very interesting,” adding, “my biggest surprise was the intensity of the men’s desire to have a baby too!”
