NBC is planning a show that combines elements of dating shows with The Amazing Race. On the show, “16 soon-to-be-married couples will compete for a ‘fantasy primetime wedding,’” Zap2it.com reports; they’ll have to “compete in a series of challenges designed to test the strength of their relationships.” The eight-episode series will debut next summer.
