ABC/Lou RoccoOn the heels of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ first wedding anniversary a week ago, Amazon has greenlit an unscripted series executive produced by the couple, inspired by the Indian pre-wedding tradition of the Sangeet, according to Deadline.
Sangeet, which takes place the night before the ceremony, is a musical celebration of the union of the couple, as well as their families. Chopra says the ritual played an important role in the lead up to their own cross-cultural wedding.
The series will take the audience through “a celebration of the love, marriage, and magic that ensues when friends and family come together through music and dance the evening before the wedding,” and will feature couples from “a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and locations,” according to Amazon. Each episode will follow an engaged couple, along with their wedding party, family and friends, as they prepare for the wedding and “rehearse for what will be an epic performance with the help of a team of celebrity choreographers, stylists, and creative directors.”
“We re-watched the video of our Sangeet last week on our first anniversary, and the togetherness of our family and friends during this event still sparks the same warmth and excitement that it did just over a year ago at our wedding,” says Priyanka.
“The days leading up to our Sangeet were some of the most special, memorable moments of the weekend,” adds Nick. “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.”
Nick and Priyanka tied the knot on December 1, 2018.
