Comedian Jamie Lee to launch “feminist wedding show” based on her book ‘Weddiculous’
Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images for New York Magazine(NEW YORK) — Comedian Jamie Lee intends to corner the market on feminist wedding shows.
The Crashing actress confirms to ABC Radio that her 2016 book Weddiculous: An Unfiltered Guide to Being a Bride, is heading to the small screen.
“Yes, we are turning the book into a TV show,” she says. “I can’t say for what streaming service but I am determined to make Weddiculous sort of the first-ever feminist wedding show.”
She adds, “We’re in the process of casting that, so if there are any people getting married [who] would like a little assistance with their wedding process, I’m your girl.”
Lee was inspired to write the book during her own wedding planning with now-husband, Dan Black. It was a way to show brides-to-be that not everything has to be as shiny and perfect as the bridal blogs would have you believe.
Making the book into a TV series was the next logical step, considering that Lee is a longtime fan of wedding reality shows. She even appeared on an episode of Say Yes to the Dress.
“I applied through the website, I didn’t hear back, I was devastated,” she says. “It was my dream to go on that show. Then I went out and bought my dress on my own…And then the day after I bought my wedding dress, I got a call from TLC.”
She ended up keeping her original wedding dress, but she did get a fun fitting at famed bridal salon Kleinfeld’s.
