Disney+ has unveiled the official trailer and key art for its first UK Original series, rom-com action thriller “Wedding Season.” The eight-episode series premieres exclusively on the streaming service on Disney+ Day on Thursday, September 8. Further images were also revealed of the brand-new series, which premieres on Disney+ under the Star banner in Australia.
The genre-busting series tells the story of Katie and Stefan who fall for each other at a wedding and begin an affair, despite Katie already having a fiancé. Two months later at Katie’s wedding, her new husband and his entire family are murdered. The police think Stefan did it. Stefan thinks Katie did it. And no one knows for sure what the truth is…
The series is an action-packed romp across the UK and the US as Katie and Stefan go on the run, all while trying to prove their innocence.
“Wedding Season” stars Rosa Salazar and Gavin Drea, with Jade Harrison, Jamie Michie, Callie Cooke, Bhav Joshi, Ioanna Kimbook, Omar Baroud and George Webster.
The series is created and executive produced by up-and-coming screenwriting talent Oliver Lyttelton (“Cheaters”) and directed by George Kane (“Crashing”) and Laura Scrivano (“The Lazarus Project”). Produced by Dancing Ledge Productions (“The Responder”, “The Salisbury Poisonings”) with executive producers Chris Carey, Laurence Bowen, and Toby Bruce; Jax Media (“Russian Doll”, “Emily in Paris”) with executive producers Brooke Posch, Lilly Burns, and Tony Hernandez; and Johanna Devereaux executive producing for Disney+.
