FYI Premieres New Docu-Series Teenage Newlyweds
FYI's new docuseries, TEENAGE NEWLYWEDS follows three young couples as they take a leap of love and transition from teen sweethearts to husband and wife. The series captures their weddings and all the ups and downs of juggling family, school, career, finances and first homes, while still navigating life as a teenager. Eight hour-long episodes begin premiering tonight, Tuesday, May 31 at 10 pm ET/PT.
"FYI continues to create unique and entertaining content that spotlights the many faces of American marriage," said Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for FYI. "Teenage Newlyweds' joins 'Married at First Sight,' 'Arranged' and 'Seven Year Switch' as one of our latest relationship franchises that shares alternative paths to finding love."
In "Teenage Newlyweds," viewers follow three couples as they learn how to build a life and future together, all while still growing up. Halie and George, both members of the Mormon Church, met while he was a missionary and were engaged after only a few short months of dating. Brenda and Travis were set-up on a blind date while attending college and sparks flew immediately, despite clashing beliefs and values. Small-town high school sweethearts, Emma and Joey have vastly different career aspirations, but are determined to make their marriage work. Universal life stages are explored across the series as viewers watch the three couples work through issues most American couples today tackle when they are older and wiser.
"Teenage Newlyweds" is produced for FYI by A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Frank Sinton, Christmas Rini, and Elise Duran are executive producers for A. Smith & Co. Productions. Gena McCarthy and James Bolosh serve as executive producers for FYI.
