IS IT ALL FOR LOVE... OR MONEY?
LIFETIME'S PROVOCATIVE NEW DOCUSERIES "MARRYING MILLIONS" PREMIERES JULY 10, EXPLORING THE TRUE INTENTIONS OF SIX DEEPLY IN LOVE COUPLES
Series Comes From The Producers of 90 Day Fiancé
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 23, 2019) - Lifetime explores the love lives of six couples in the new docuseries Marrying Millions, premiering Wednesday, July 10, at 10 pm ET/PT. From the creators of 90 Day Fiancé, the new series follows the relationships where one partner is incredibly wealthy, and the other is definitively not, leading the couple to face intense scrutiny and questioning whether it's true love... or true love of the money and the lavish lifestyles that follow?
Marrying Millions follows six couples who are deeply in love and hoping to marry, but come from completely different worlds. Regular people are whisked off their feet and plunged into a high-end life of riches, extravagant experiences, and glamorous trips around the globe. While it may sound like a modern-day fairytale, it's definitely not all champagne and caviar. On the road to the altar, the couples must try to bridge their vast differences and fit into each other's alien worlds. Ten one-hour episodes have been ordered.
Marrying Millions is produced by Sharp Entertainment for Lifetime and executive produced by Matt Sharp, Dan Adler and Jason Hollis. James Bolosh and Gena McCarthy executive produce for Lifetime.

Despite their almost 40-year age gap, these two couldn't be more in love with one another. Bill wants to introduce Brianna to the finer things in life but wonders if she is ready for Dallas high society and if Dallas high society is ready for her.
Katie and Kolton
Katie, 37, was previously married to baseball star Josh Hamilton. But following a messy and public divorce, Katie ended up millions richer, with shared custody of their daughters. Katie met aspiring hip-hop artist, Kolton, when a group of her 18-year-old daughter's friends showed up at Katie's house, which included 23-year-old Kolton. After hitting it off, the two began dating and though they have only been together for a few months, there has already been backlash from her friends and family and she has yet to meet his parents.
Gentille and Brian

Gentille is a real estate investor who buys and sells extravagant homes, and in doing so, lives an extraordinarily lavish lifestyle. Brian, meanwhile, comes from a blue-collar family in Minnesota and works in construction, living paycheck-to-paycheck. The two met when Gentille hired Brian to work on one of her developments, but Brian quickly won her over with his charm and sense of humor and they began dating. Gentille's friends, a big part of her life since she has no family, have their doubts about Brian's true intentions.
Drew and Rosie
Divorced, multi-millionaire Drew, who owns a successful construction and landscaping company, met Rosie, a recent college graduate who still lives with her parents.
