FYI(TM) PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "BRIDE & PREJUDICE" TUESDAY, MARCH 15 AT 9PM ET/PT

SERIES FOLLOWS COUPLES HEADING TOWARDS MARRIAGE AS THEY STRUGGLE TO GAIN ACCEPTANCE FROM LOVED ONES WHO OPPOSE THEIR UNION

FROM THE PRODUCERS OF FYI'S HIT SERIES "MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT"

NEW YORK, February 11, 2016 - FYI's new docuseries, "Bride & Prejudice," follows three star-crossed couples who desperately want to get married, but whose prejudiced family members do not approve of their unions. Six episodes are set to premiere on Tuesday, March 15 at 9pm ET/PT, beginning with a two-hour season opener. The remaining hour-long episodes will premiere Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT and culminate with a two-hour season finale.

In the two-hour premiere, viewers will meet three couples as they decide to make a life-long commitment and get married in the face of staunch opposition from their family and friends. From an interfaith couple in Baltimore, to a gay couple in Boston, and an interracial couple from Houston - these people are all striving to show doubtful loved ones how differences in race, religion and sexual preference do not affect their ability to love and be loved.

"FYI continues to pioneer brand-definitional relationship content," said Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for FYI. "Bride and Prejudice' shares culturally diverse and emotionally powerful stories of real people, tackling real issues, like race, religion, and sexual orientation, on their path toward marriage and love."

Bringing each other's families together may be challenging, but for the couples featured in "Bride & Prejudice," approval is necessary before walking down the aisle. As they announce their engagements and meet the in-laws, emotions run high. Viewers will see the difficulties each couple must deal with along the way. Will familial pressure impact their upcoming nuptials, or will love of a potential spouse outweigh love of family? Will they go through with the weddings if family members don't ultimately approve? Against all odds and in the face of bigotry, these couples will aim to prove that their relationship has what it takes to build the foundation for a long lasting marriage.

"Bride & Prejudice" is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI. Chris Coelen, Katie Griffin and John Platt are executive producers for Kinetic Content. Gena McCarthy and James Bolosh serve as executive producers for FYI.
