Oprah Winfrey’s Network to Air Israel’s ‘Marry Me Now’ Adaptation
A new group of potential brides could be heading down the aisle when Oprah Winfrey’s OWN TV channel airs reality show ‘Marry Me Now’ on March 19, based on the Israeli series originally aired on the defunct channel. 10.
OWN will air eight episodes of the US adaptation, which will also be available on streaming provider Discovery+.
The OWN Network’s version of Oprah is hosted by relationship coach and author Rebecca Lynn Pope, who guides eight Houston, Texas women eager to plan their weddings and determined to reverse roles and propose to their loved ones.
Each week, Pope trains a woman as she secretly plans a surprise wedding, culminating in a public proposal to her partner, all in three days. Even if the answer is no, women gain clarity about their love life and can move on.
“Marry Me Now” was first developed by Israeli TV veteran and reality show creator Zipi Rozenblum for Armoza Formats.
“It never ceases to amaze that original content created here in Israel is making waves around the world,” Rozenblum said.
