Produced by LA-based Kinetic Content, the 6 x 60-minute docuseries will trace the lives of three sets of partners – an interfaith couple, a gay couple and an interracial couple – determined to marry in the face of staunch opposition from their family and friends.
The series will offer a comprehensive look at the familial pressures each couple must overcome as they prepare to walk down the aisle, stemming from issues of race, religion and sexual preference, among other areas.
Bride and Prejudice will premiere on FYI on March 8 at 9 p.m. EST/PST with a two-hour season opener. The remaining hour-long episodes will air in the 10 p.m. EST/PST timeslot and culminate with a two-hour season finale.
“FYI continues to pioneer brand-definitional relationship content,” said McCarthy, senior VP of programming and development for FYI, in a statement. “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.”
