WE tv RENEWS ITS VOWS WITH "BRIDEZILLAS"

WE tv TO REBOOT HIT REALITY SHOW TURNED CULTURAL PHENOMENON

One of Reality TV's First Franchises To Return in 2018 with 10 New Episodes

"Bridezillas" Became Part of the Cultural Lexicon, and Only Became More Popular and Pervasive Over Time

NEW YORK, NY - July 13, 2017 - The wedding show that spawned a new television genre and became a cultural touchstone is returning to WE tv. The network announced today that it will reboot its long-running hit show "Bridezillas," with 10 new hour-long episodes set to premiere next year. 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 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.

"Bridezillas" is executive produced by Laura Halperin. Executive Producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy.
