Quintessential Bachelor Charlie O'Connell Takes on Manhattan and 25 Women as 'The Bachelor,' Premiering Monday, March 28 on the ABC Television Network

[via press release from ABC]

QUINTESSENTIAL BACHELOR CHARLIE O'CONNELL TAKES ON MANHATTAN AND 25 WOMEN AS "THE BACHELOR," PREMIERING MONDAY, MARCH 28 ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

ABC's hit romantic reality series, "The Bachelor," will kick off a new season with Charlie O'Connell in his hometown of New York, New York. The seventh edition of "The Bachelor" will premiere with a two-hour special MONDAY, MARCH 28 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Charlie O'Connell is a financially secure 29-year-old jack of all trades who enjoys a fantastic lifestyle and a love for life that is contagious. Charlie, a self-described fun loving "good guy," has long cherished his carefree bachelor lifestyle. However, amongst 25 beautiful bachelorettes, is there one girl who can stop Charlie in his tracks and inspire him to settle down?

While he grew up in New York City, Charlie currently splits his time between both coasts. For the last eight years Los Angeles has been his main residence, where he lives with his older brother, actor Jerry O'Connell. He also spends much of his time at his family's home in Montauk, Long Island with his parents, whose marriage of over 30 years serves as the model relationship Charlie so desires.

This season will be unlike any other on "The Bachelor," as we strip down some of the formalities and offer viewers a less structured version of the program. On the first day there will be no limos, no gowns and no traditional rose ceremony. This time there are no rules and anything can happen, as we give Charlie the opportunity of a lifetime to discover if love is out there waiting for him.

Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions. Mike Fleiss ("High School Reunion") is the executive producer. Lisa Levenson and Scott Jeffress are co-executive producers.
