HOW TO GET THE GUY - Romantic Reality Series To Premiere June 12 On ABC

HOW TO GET THE GUY Premieres Monday, June 12 On The ABC Television Network

HOW TO GET THE GUY, a romantic reality series that follows the trials and tribulations of love as seen through the eyes of four young, attractive and available women who are looking for Mr. Right, premieres Monday, June 12 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. The show is from Emmy Award-winning producers David Collins and David Metzler ("Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.")

Shot docu-soap style at over 150-locations throughout San Francisco, the one-hour series will follow four single women over six episodes as they take hold of their own romantic destinies and declare to the world that they are ready, willing and able to do anything and everything they have to in order to find true love.

Accompanying Alissa, Anne, Kris and Michelle on their journey are two "Love Coaches," Emmy-winning writer and award-winning journalist Teresa Strasser and well-known television host JD Roberto. Lending the "he said/she said" perspective to the women′s search, Strasser and Roberto will guide each lady throughout a series of events that ultimately leaves them learning more about love than any of them thought possible.

In the premiere episode, Teresa and JD take the ladies to San Francisco′s Monster Park, where they pledge to "get in the game" and get serious about finding not just a guy, but "the guy." Later the love coaches spend a little time with "girl next door" Anne, giving her tips on "dropping the hanky," or how to show available men she′s interested; support Alissa, a "spiritual massage therapist," as she meets a guy who is about to ask her out; try to get party girl Kris to take dating a little more seriously; and coax trial lawyer Michelle to be less picky and give a guy --- any guy - a chance. The four get to put the advice into play when they go to a "signal party," an event chock full of single folks looking to hook up.

Collins and Metzler said: "HOW TO GET THE GUY is a how to manual come to life! Throughout the series, each woman will exhaust all avenues in their search for ′the guy′ and look within themselves to see if they are ready to jump over this emotional hurdle. Together we have created a format where every episode is framed around a different universal rule of love, lending tips and ′news you can use′ that the audience can apply to their own real-life romantic adventures."

HOW TO GET THE GUY is from Scout Productions, which is currently in production on their fourth season of Bravo′s "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," which has earned them an Emmy and Producers Guild Award. HOW TO GET THE GUY is broadcast with Spanish subtitles via secondary closed captioning. A TV parental guideline will be posted closer to airdate.
