Marry Me Now Lands on OWN in the U.S.


OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has picked up the Armoza Formats docu-reality series Marry Me Now for the U.S.

The U.S. edition of Marry Me Now will be hosted by relationship coach, love guru and author Rebecca Lynn Pope, who will guide women as they take the reins in planning their weddings and proposing to their significant others in the hopes of marriage. It will premiere on OWN on March 19 and will stream the same day on discovery+.

Marry Me Now is produced by ITV Entertainment and executive produced by Jordana Hochman, Ted Iredell, Caroline Self, Avi Armoza, Odelia Yakir, Zipi Rozenblum and Nehama Cohen.

With this commission, the U.S. becomes the seventh territory to adapt Marry Me Now. The format has previously traveled to France, Poland, Russia, Germany, the 46 countries of sub-Saharan Africa and aired three hit seasons on South Africa’s VIA TV. The U.S. version of Marry Me Now will be distributed by ITV Studios, while the format is available through Armoza Formats.

Avi Armoza, CEO of Armoza Formats, said: “We are always asked to bring content that combines high stakes with strong human emotions, and Marry Me Now does just that, along with highlighting a shift of power as women bring their own take to the often-traditional approach at marriage proposals. We are excited by the format’s continued success around the world, with the new adaptation from our partners at OWN and ITV Entertainment sure to be a new fan favorite.”
