U.S. cable network FYI has commissioned a High Noon Entertainment-produced wedding series starring celebrity event planner Michael Russo (pictured), realscreen has learned.

The as-yet-untitled series will see Russo oversee a dream wedding – including his own – from start to finish over the course of each episode.

The deal marks the Cake Boss firm’s first commission for the A+E Networks-owned FYI, which launched in July, when it replaced the company’s Bio channel.

A spokesperson for FYI confirmed the commission to realscreen, but declined to discuss the show further, while a spokesperson for High Noon declined to comment.

The series is the latest commission for FYI, which also recently announced an hour-long transformation show entitled Red Hot Design, premiering this month.

In an interview with realscreen earlier this year, network president Jana Bennett said her vision for FYI is lifestyle programming that is a hybrid of entertainment and how-to.
