Season Premiere: WEDDING DAY

TNT Gives Deserving Couples a Magical Day to Cherish the Rest of Their Lives In Network’s First Unscripted Drama: WEDDING DAY

A near-fatal car accident postpones a wedding in the series premiere of TNT’s uplifting drama WEDDING DAY.

Holli & Steve; Premieres Tuesday, June 16, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT)
Just four days before his wedding day in 2007, Steve received a call that his bride-to-be, Holli, had been injured in a near-fatal car crash and had only a 50% chance of surviving. After six days in a coma, she finally came to, but every day since then has been a struggle to withstand the long, painful road to recovery. Holli and Steve’s walk down the aisle includes a New York shopping spree, a Badgley-Mishka wedding dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes. The couple even gets to enjoy a special performance by Boyz II Men, who were moved when they heard Holli and Steve’s story.

"WEDDING DAY is everything a good drama should be, from the compelling and relatable people and stories to the climactic build to the big day. They conducted an extensive search from coast to coast for couples whose stories are undeniably inspirational and uplifting,” said Burnett. “The show also gives us the wonderful chance to give back to those who volunteer their time or put their lives on the line to help others. They are thrilled to be able to give each selected couple a wedding they’ll never forget, while also bringing their incredibly moving stories to TNT’s viewers.”
