If you are getting married in spring or early summer of this year, you may be one of the few lucky couples who could be featured on Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas‘ upcoming show set to air on Amazon Prime. Hosting an open casting call for engaged couples who live or work in the US, the celebrity pair is asking for love stories to share in their first professional project together as husband and wife.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news to his 28.8 million followers, Jonas posted a video explaining the premise behind the series and uploaded the submission link on his bio. “Priyanka and I are so excited about the series that we are developing with Amazon Prime Video and we want your video submissions,” Jonas said in the clip. “It’s very exciting and I think you guys are going to love this show. It’s all about love, marriage, and the magic of weddings. It’s going to be fun.”
The casting website explains the yet-to-be-titled project further: “Each episode of this documentary-style series will follow an engaged couple along with their wedding party, family and friends in the days leading up to their wedding. While each side prepares for the wedding day they will also need to rehearse for their performance that will wow everyone at the rehearsal dinner.” Luckily, the couple won’t have to prepare for their televised debut by themselves because “an arsenal of celebrity choreographers, stylists, and creative directors will help you and your partner to prepare for this performance of a lifetime!” Interested duos can head to the site and send in video recaps of their meet-cute moment, proposal story, and fellow wedding party performers for a chance to be chosen as one of the happy husband-and-wives-to-be.
While many friends tagged couples they know on Jonas’ post to participate and start planning their wedding soon, many singles also took this as an opportunity to find a spouse. “Who wants to marry me for the cause?” joked one user while another tagged someone asking, “Can you propose to me so I can be on their show”.
Chopra Jonas first shared the news of the project back in December, a few days after her wedding anniversary with the Jonas Brothers singer, by explaining the Indian wedding tradition of a sangeet celebration. “At our wedding, both of our families came together to perform a sangeet. A performance (dance-off competition style) that celebrated our love story, one of the most unforgettable moments from a very special time in our lives,” she wrote on Instagram, continuing that the couple is “excited to announce a new, currently untitled project (we’re still working on it!!) that celebrates the love and magic that comes from friends and family that join together through music and dance the night before a wedding. It’s our #SangeetProject.”
The Bollywood star ended the caption saying, “We want to be part of the celebration and help you make it even more spectacular…we’ll have you dancing before you walk down the aisle!” hinting to a potentially similar concept as Maroon 5’s infamous Sugar music video. Adding the hashtags “#representationmatters”, “#crosspollination”, and “#culturesblending” to the post, it seems Chopra Jonas may also be particularly looking for couples that similarly reflect her own intercultural marriage in an attempt to highlight more people of different backgrounds on mainstream media.
