From Armoza Formats, Odelia Yakir and Zipi Rozenblum, Marry Me Now (60’) is the emotional and empowering docu-reality series that gives women the chance to take charge of their own fate. Each episodes follows one determined woman, who has had enough of waiting for a ring. She will prepare her own wedding in just a few days and all without the groom-to-be’s knowledge. On the last day she will surprise her partner in her wedding dress with an ambush proposal. If he says no, it’s all over… but if he says yes, they will tie the knot on the spot!
Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, said: “We are always asked to bring content that combines high stakes with strong human emotions, and ‘Marry Me Now’ does just that, along with highlighting a shift of power as women bring their own take to the often-traditional approach at marriage proposals. We are excited by the format’s continued success around the world, with the new adaptation from our partners at OWN and ITV Entertainment sure to be a new fan favorite.”
