A new set of potential brides may head to the altar when Oprah Winfrey’s OWN television network airs reality show “Marry Me Now” on March 19, based on the Israeli series originally featured on the now-defunct Channel 10.

OWN will broadcast eight episodes of the US adaptation, which will also be available on streaming provider Discovery+.

The US is the latest territory for the Israeli bride-to-be format that was previously broadcast in France, Poland, Russia, Israel, Germany and South Africa.

Oprah’s OWN network version is hosted by relationship coach and author Rebecca Lynn Pope, who guides eight women from Houston, Texas, impatient to plan their weddings and determined to flip roles and propose to their significant others.

Each week, Pope coaches one woman as she secretly plans a surprise wedding, culminating with a public proposal to her partner, all in three days. Even if the answer is no, the women gain clarity on their love lives and can move forward.

“Marry Me Now” was first developed by veteran Israeli TV showrunner and reality show creator Zipi Rozenblum for Armoza Formats.

“It never ceases to amaze that original content created here in Israel is making waves around the world,” said Rozenblum.
