Channel 4 Announces New Series 'Bride and Prejudice'

News Image
Channel 4 has commissioned a brand new five-part factual entertainment series, Bride and Prejudice.

Bride and Prejudice is produced by 7 Wonder and based on an A&E format.

It will tell the stories of six soon to be wed couples as they confront a deeply held opposition to their marriage from within their own families, whilst trying to organise their weddings. For each couple there is at least one family member who is strongly against their wedding ever taking place. From race to religion, LGBT to class and age gap, the couples face countless questions.

The series will follow the couples in the exciting time leading up to their wedding day. These couples are seeking to win their families' support for their relationship and address the disapproval of their loved ones.

Lucy Leveugle, Acting Head of Factual Entertainment at Channel 4 said: "Bride and Prejudice looks at issues ripe and relevant in Britain today through the prism of Romeo and Juliet stories of star-crossed lovers and their families. The series is as much about the underlying bonds within these families as the conflict that these issues raise."

Duncan Coates, Executive Producer for 7Wonder added: "There's nothing like a wedding to flush out a family drama, especially when it crosses traditional divides. Bride and Prejudice is a timely re-working of an age old love story. Warm, witty and searingly honest, it's a brilliant insight into the struggles for acceptance played out across Britain today."

Bride and Prejudice (5 x 60) was commissioned by Channel 4's Acting Head of Factual Entertainment Lucy Leveugle. The Executive Producer is Duncan Coates and the Series Producer is Martin Conway. The series will air later this year on Channel 4. 7Wonder is a Banijay Group company.
