‘My Mom, Your Dad’: Yvonne Orji Hosts New HBO Max Dating Show Featuring Kids Setting Up Their Single Parents

Following completion of her five-season stint as Molly Carter on the HBO's Insecure, Emmy-nominated actress and comedian Yvonne Orji is crossing over to the realm of reality dating television.

Orji will appear on My Mom, Your Dad, an eight-episode reality dating television series set to air on HBO Max.

My Mom, Your Dad chronicles a group of single parents selected by their college-age children to move into a house called Second Chance Retreat together with the hopes of finding love. Unbeknownst to the parents, their kids are all staying together in another house right down the street, watching and manipulating their dating adventures with the help of Orji and various hidden cameras.

Created by The Office exec producer Greg Daniels and his daughter Haley Daniels as their first unscripted television project, My Mom, Your Dad premieres on HBO Max this week.

Jennifer O’Connell, executive vice president, Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family at WarnerMedia, said in a previous statement: “Created by a father-daughter duo who represent the two generational perspectives in the show, the concept of MY MOM, YOUR DAD is heartfelt, hilarious, and cringeworthy. Greg’s comedic brilliance with Haley’s original ideas, combined with the unscripted expertise of ITV Entertainment and the multi-talented Yvonne Orji is sure to result in highly addictive viewing.”
