WeTV Brings First African-American Bachelor To Television
We’ve questioned time and time again why ABC has yet to cast an African-American man as their object of desire on the hit show “The Bachelor,” but we no longer have to wait because WeTV has answered the demand for a black bachelor with their new show “Match Made In Heaven.” The show stars a real estate developer named Shawn Bullard who is looking for a wife from amongst a group of very diverse beauties. Along to help him in his quest are his mother Maggie and NFL Spiritual Advisor for the Indianapolis Colts, Pastor Ken Johnson. Watch the teaser:
