Freeform has greenlit “Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After,” which will follow the most recent happily engaged couple, former Bachelor Ben Higgins and fiancée Lauren Bushnell. The logline: The new reality series will follow the happy couple as they prepare to walk down the aisle and begin their brand-new life together while navigating the real world after the splendor of “The Bachelor’’s exotic dates and fantasy suites has ended. All the while, Ben will explore getting involved in the political realm and Lauren will try and establish her identity post-“Bachelor.” During the show some fan favorites from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” will stop by to visit and share their own advice on life after the show.
The series, which will debut in October, will be produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton and Jason Ehrlich will serve as the executive producers. Jack Mori is co-executive producer.
