Arranged

TV3, 8 x 1 hour, 2016 – Present

Arranged is a colourful and fun look into the traditional cultural weddings of New Zealand’s migrant communities. From modest religious ceremonies to the glitz and glamour of multi-day Indian celebrations, the series explores the age-old customs and practices of arranged marriage to show how they exist, alive and well, in modern day New Zealand. Arranged opens the door into a dazzling and diverse world, and lifts the lid on some very different ways to say “I DO”

‘Arranged’ offers valid reasons as to why some choose to leave their love life to those who can analyse compatibility with a more critical eye. But what really makes ‘Arranged’ so compelling is the very likeable subjects the producers have chosen, you are drawn into their lives and find yourself really wanting the best for these young people.’
