'Wife' bows April 30 at 9 p.m.

The CW is helping one farmer spread a few seeds of his own this planting season.”Farmer Wants a Wife” will bow April 30 at 9 p.m. behind “America’s Next Top Model.”

Show is the CW’s answer to the two-decade-old “Farm Aid” — except in this case, the network is hooking a farmer up with some lovin’, not with funds to forestall his foreclosure.

“Farmer Wants a Wife” follows 10 city women as they attempt to charm the overalls off a farmer who hasn’t been able to find love in the country. Show takes the spot left empty following the season finale of “Pussycat Girls Present: Girlicious,” which is “American Idol” to “Farmer Wants a Wife’s” “The Bachelor.”

Show, already a big hit in the Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and France, among other territories, comes from FremantleMedia North America. Adam Cohen, Cara Tapper and Joanna Vernetti exec produce.
