Disney has confirmed that it has greenlit a brand new genre-busting marriage murder series called “Wedding Season”. This new eight-part Star original series for Disney+ internationally.
“Wedding Season” centres on Katie, a beautiful bride who we meet on her wedding day surrounded by the dead bodies of her new husband and every member of his family. The police think Katie’s lover Stefan did it. Stefan thinks Katie did it. Katie thinks her ex-husband did it. No one knows what the truth is.
This new romantic comedy action-adventure is being created by Dancing Ledge Productions and Jax Media. Dancing Ledge Production has previously worked on “The Salisbury Poisonings”, while Jax Media worked on Netflix’s “Emily In Paris”.
In a statement to Deadline, Johanna Devereaux, Disney’s director of scripted content, EMEA, said:
“When we first read Oli’s brilliant scripts for Wedding Season we laughed out loud… and we were desperate to find out what happened next. It’s an addictive, genre-defying series packed with twists and turns.”
Wedding Season has been written by Oliver Lyttelton, who was behind the BBC short-form scripted series Cheaters and will be an executive producer, along with Chris Carey, Laurence Bowen, Toby Bruce, Lilly Burns, Brooke Posch and Tony Hernandez. George Kane will be the director of the new Star Original, having previously worked on “Timewasters”, “Flack”, and “Crashing”.
Disney has previously announced that it is aiming at producing 50 original projects for Disney+ in Europe by 2024, and this is the 15th Disney+/Star Original so far announced that will be created in Europe.
