Drew Barrymore is upping her TV game once again, as EW can confirm the actress will narrate the Ellen DeGeneres-produced reality show First Dates.

The dating series, based on the U.K. program of the same name, will revolve around the highs and lows of multiple meetups occurring at a restaurant in Chicago. At the end of each episode, the daters will reveal whether they’d like to see their partners again.

As Barrymore’s focus shifts to TV, she is set to star in Netflix’s upcoming romantic comedy Santa Clarita Diet, which she will topline alongside Timothy Olyphant, in 2017. The Charlie’s Angels actress recently struck a development deal with MTV, and will executive-produce a coming-of-age series, Blooms, for the network. She will also guest-star on an upcoming season 2 episode of Bravo’s Odd Mom Out.

First Dates has received an eight-episode order from NBC, and will begin production in July. No premiere date has been announced.
