Global it couple, Nick and Priyanka Chopra Jonas made headlines when they tied the knot last year in lavish wedding spanning weeks. Now, just over a year after their nuptials, they’ve landed a deal to produce a series based on wedding planning.
The couple has teamed up with Amazon Studios, taking up the role as executive producers for an unscripted series for Prime Video. Focusing on weddings traditions, the inspiration for the show comes from the Indian tradition of sangeet.
As confirmed by Deadline, the series will feature couples from different backgrounds gearing up for the big night with elaborate dance performances. Each episode will not just feature the engaged couple, but also the entire wedding party including their family and friends, following their preparations leading up to the big day, complete with a team of celebrity choreographers, creative directors and stylists.
Priyanka took to her Instagram to confirm the news in a lengthy post reading, “Nick Jonas and I are excited to announce a new, currently untitled project (we’re still working on it!!) that celebrates the love and magic that comes from friends and family that join together through music and dance the night before a wedding. It’s our #SangeetProject.”
The actor reminisced about her own wedding sangeet, which is, of course, where the idea for the show stems from. “At our wedding, both of our families came together to perform a sangeet. A performance (dance-off competition style) that celebrated our love story, one of the most unforgettable moments from a very special time in our lives,” she wrote.
“The days leading up to our Sangeet were some of the most special, memorable moments of the weekend. Bringing the concept of this musical celebration to the mainstream in a new way, through couples setting out on one of the most exciting journeys of their life, is an idea that we are proud to bring to life with Amazon,” said Nick Jonas, echoing his wives sentiments.
The currently untitled sangeet project is produced by Amazon Studios and Alfred Street Industries while Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Nick Jonas, Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Dan Volpe, Anjula Acharia, Phil McIntyre, and Nina Anand Aujla will serve as Executive Producers.
