Help Us Get Married! is a ground-breaking new docu-series featuring three newly-engaged couples, from across America, who are planning their weddings, with the help of the Facebook community. In each Thursday episode, Facebook Watch viewers watchas couples struggle to agree on wedding day decisions, and then have the ability to help them decide through Facebook polling. Then, on Friday nights, starting May 4th, audiences can tune-in live to see the results of the previous night’s vote! Over 12 weeks, the Facebook community will have the final say in the wedding planning process, deciding on everything from the venue to picking the perfect dress, and in the season finale the audience will get to see the weddings they helped plan.

Host Tamera Mowry-Housley is best known for co-hosting The Real. She has starred in the hit Disney Channel series Sister, Sister alongside her twin sister, Tia Mowry, and films including Seventeen AgainTwitches, and The Hot Chick.

Bachner and Meagher stated, “Tamera is a supremely talented host who is passionate about the wedding space and has the experience to navigate the type of live, interactive programming that only Facebook Watch can deliver. ‘Help Us Get Married!’ gives viewers a set of tools that will allow them to share opinions, shape our storylines and talk with Tamera in real time. It’s beyond exciting to be a part of this.”

Help Us Get Married! showcases the audience interactivity and community building capabilities of the Facebook Watch platform, making the viewing experience more social for the Facebook community as they directly engage and impact the outcome of the show’s three weddings.
