Amazon orders Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas series
Staff Reporter | On 12, Dec 2019
Amazon Studios has greenlit an untitled series from Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas.
The unscripted series is executive produced by the famous couple and inspired by an Indian pre-wedding tradition called the sangeet. The sangeet takes place the night before the ceremony, bringing together the families of the betrothed for a performance-filled evening of song and dance. Chopra Jonas and Jonas’ sangeet played an important role in the lead up to their own nuptials in December 2018.
The as-yet untitled series is a celebration of the love, marriage, and magic that ensues when friends and family come together. The engaged couples featured throughout will hail from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and locations. Each episode will follow an engaged couple along with their wedding party, family, and friends, as they not only prepare for the wedding itself, but also 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. The Sangeet is a centuries-old Indian wedding tradition, that not only celebrates the union of two people, but also signifies the introduction and bonding of two families coming together in a marriage,” said Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
“The days leading up to our Sangeet were some of the most special, memorable moments of the weekend,” Nick Jonas continued. “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.”
“The sangeet is such a beautiful tradition and we’re excited to partner with Priyanka and Nick to honour it through this series and find couples from all different backgrounds that are excited to bring their families together through the universal language of song and dance,” commented Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.
The Untitled Priyanka Chopra Jonas / Nick Jonas Sangeet Project is produced by Amazon Studios and Alfred Street Industries. Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Nick Jonas, Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Dan Volpe, Anjula Acharia, Phil McIntyre, and Nina Anand Aujla will serve as Executive Producers.
Casting for the series is currently underway and filming will take place in 2020 with participants driving the creative vision for their respective ceremonies.
