Get Me To The Church in pre-production
The series entails a bride or groom and their friends going to a pre-wedding celebration, after which the wedding party must rush to the location of the ceremony to complete their nuptials in time. The show is another original concept from the shingle; they have recently produced multi-series show The Jump and the Educating… series.
The increase in factual commissions by the broadcaster is said to be a move aimed at strengthening their current objective of catering to a more female-based audience.
Shooting is set to begin in the summer with the production company currently locking down the casting on the featured couples to feature on the first series.
