Cape Town – Lifetime (DStv 131) from A+E Networks UK on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform has commissioned its first local South African TV series, Four Weddings SA and is now looking for brides who want to win a honeymoon through their weddings.
Four Weddings SA is produced by Rapid Blue for broadcast later in 2015.
Rapid Blue is now looking for couples getting married in 2015 for the format show from ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Four Weddings SA is essentially Come Dine With Me SA – but with brides.
"We are delighted to announce a South African version of this very entertaining series," says Heather Jones, the vice president of programming at A+E Networks UK.
"Every local production of Four Weddings has created a 'talk about' piece of TV and we expect the same for Africa".
There will be 4 hour long episodes of Four Weddings SA which will follow 4 opinionated and competitive brides who think their weddings are better than anyone elses.
The brides attend each other's weddings and score on four important components: venue, food, dress and overall experience. The bride with the highest score wins a honeymoon.
"Four Weddings has been produced in more than 20 territories around the world and every bride has a very different idea of their perfect day," says Dan Gopal, the executive vice president for distribution for ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
"We look forward to seeing what South African brides have to offer in the battle for the best wedding!"
Four Weddings South Africa has been commissioned by Koulla Anastasi, the director of programming for Lifetime and the Crime + Investigation channels.
"We are really looking forward to working with Lifetime on this commission, especially because Lifetime is a new and exciting channel in the market and this is its first locally produced series," says Kee-Leen Irvine, the managing director of Rapid Blue.
"We have no doubt the show will reflect South Africa’s huge cultural diversity and, with its compelling mix of all the wedding drama plus the nerves of the competitive brides, Four Weddings South Africa will make for unforgettable and often jaw-dropping entertainment".
People who want to enter Four Weddings South Africa and who are getting married between now and June 2015 can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an entry form.
