HERE COME THE “BRIDES OF BEVERLY HILLS”
NEW TLC SERIES TO PREMIERE OCTOBER 28TH
(Los Angeles, CA) — TLC expands its fan-favorite wedding programming with the extravagant new series, The Brides of Beverly Hills, premiering on October 28th at 10 and 10:30 pm. The series gives an inside look into the hearts – and wallets – of Beverly Hills’ over-the-top brides. Receiving its US premiere, the series consists of 13 30-minute episodes, which will air back-to-back over the course of 10 weeks.
Set in the stunning salon of Renee Strauss, the series follows as she and her wedding-savvy crew, including a wedding planner straight out of Father of the Bride – Kevin Lee, pamper the most discerning of clients. Beverly Hills is not your average neighborhood, and its brides-to-be are no exception. Clientele range from old money to new socialites; some arrive under a pseudonym while others bring their whole entourage. Certain brides demand the highest glitz while others opt for gentle elegance. Through it all, the champagne flows, as do tears, laughs, and quirky tales about the clients’ star-studded lives. More than finding the perfect dress, Strauss and her team help transform the biggest dreams and unlimited budgets into a bride’s perfect day.
“TLC is the destination for wedding programming, and Brides of Beverly Hills builds on the popularity of Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, and our other successful series,” remarked Amy Winter, TLC General Manager. “These brides and Renee’s business can only be found in one of the most talked-about towns in the country, and we know our audience will love this insider’s look at this premier wedding boutique.”
Brides of Beverly Hills is produced by Planetworks.
