WE tv has announced a pick-up for reality series “Bridezillas,” with 10 new hour-long episodes. The original “Bridezillas” ended its run in 2013 after 10 seasons and launched spinoff series and hit WE tv franchise “Marriage Boot Camp,” which recently concluded its eighth season on WE tv. Casting is currently underway across the country for the 2018 series.
“From the beginning, ‘Bridezillas’ was nothing short of pop culture phenomenon and a brand-defining show for WE tv. Years after saying goodbye to our last ‘Bridezilla,’ we have been asked consistently to bring this show back by viewers and fans,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv. “With its built-in fanbase and continued cultural relevance, the ‘Bridezillas’ franchise is a strategic growth asset that we can leverage across our business and we are thrilled to be bringing it back to WE tv.”
The logline: The series famously spotlights so-called ‘normal’ women who have turned into “Bridezillas” by their upcoming nuptials. Each episode will follow two hilariously unhinged brides as they hurtle toward the altar. We meet the brides and their grooms, learn their backgrounds, relationship histories, and see how the wedding has taken over their lives. As we move closer to the brides’ big day, tempers and tensions flare, the patience of loved ones is tested and monumental meltdowns become inevitable as our ‘Bridezillas’ are pushed to the edge – all in the name of planning the ‘perfect’ wedding.
