Facebook Watch has set a May 3rd premiere for a new interactive docuseries, Help Us Get Married!
Hosted by Tamera Mowry-Housley, the series is set to premiere over two nights. It features three newly engaged couples from across America who are planning their weddings with the help of the Facebook community.
In each Thursday episode, Facebook Watch viewers will see the couples struggle to agree on wedding day decisions, and then have the ability to help them decide through Facebook polling. Then, on Friday nights starting May 4th, audiences can tune-in live to see the results of the previous night’s vote.
Over 12 weeks, the Facebook community will have the final say in the wedding planning process, deciding on everything from the venue to picking the perfect dress. In the season finale, the audience will get to see the weddings they helped plan.
The show is produced by Thumb Candy Media, the digital studio division of B-17 Entertainment, founded by Rhett Bachner and Brien Meagher. Bachner and Meagher will serve as executive producers alongside Richard Courtney.
“I am excited to be a part of this interactive journey with Help Us Get Married! on Facebook Watch,” said Mowry-Housley. “Directly engaging with the community as they connect with one another, voice their opinions, and ultimately impact the outcome of our couples’ special day is unlike anything I have ever done before. I remember planning my own wedding and how stressful decision-making can really be for every little detail. Through the help of the community on Facebook, I hope we can make the process for each couple much easier as they let us into the most intimate planning of their wedding days and have a lot of fun along the way.”
Mowry-Housley is best known for co-hosting The Real. She has starred in the hit Disney Channel series Sister, Sister alongside her twin sister, Tia Mowry, and films including Seventeen Again, Twitches, and The Hot Chick. Mowry-Housley was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Bachner and Meagher stated, “Tamera is a supremely talented host who is passionate about the wedding space and has the experience to navigate the type of live, interactive programming that only Facebook Watch can deliver. ‘Help Us Get Married!’ gives viewers a set of tools that will allow them to share opinions, shape our storylines and talk with Tamera in real time. It’s beyond exciting to be a part of this.”
