Discovery-owned lifestyle net TLC has commissioned UK television prodco True North to produce a regional version of TLC’s franchise Say Yes To the Dress in Lancashire.
The 10 x 60-minute series, tentatively titled Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire, will spotlight the inner world of the bridal boutique Ava Rose Hamilton. Host and celebrity stylist Gok Wan (pictured) will team with boutique owner Paula Chappell, and her dress consultants to help the upcoming brides find their perfect bridal gown and say ‘yes’ to the dress.
Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire joins TLC’s wedding portfolio of programming, which features Say Yes to the Dress: UK and also includes new wedding shows Second Chance Dresses and Olivia & Alex Said Yes bowing in late 2018.
“Say Yes to the Dress is an incredibly well-loved brand so we are very proud to work with Gok and TLC to give it a new northern vibe,” said Jessica Fowle, creative director at True North, in a statement. “We’re sure that viewers – both old and new – are going to love our funny, feisty brides and the passionate team at Ava Rose Hamilton.”
The Lancashire spin-off of the Half Yard Productions format was ordered by TLC’s Clare Laycock, and Charlotte Reid is the commissioner. Deidre Dowling is the executive producer for TLC and Jo Haddock is the executive producer for True North.
Say Yes To The Dress Lancashire is expected to air in early 2019.
