TVWise continues our Upfronts coverage with a first look at NBC’s new comedy series Marry Me.
Marry Me follows Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) who, six years ago, bonded over their mutual love of nachos and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. Before he can ask, though, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to “put a ring on it” in paradise and now Jake’s perfect proposal is ruined. Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. Yet if history tells us anything, it’s when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not.
The comedy series was created by David Caspe, who previously created ABC’s cult comedy series Happy Endings. In addition to Casey Wilson and Ken Marino, Marry Me also stars Sarah Wright, John Gemberling, Tymberlee Hill and Tim Meadows. Sony Pictures Television and FanFare Productions are producing, with David Caspe, Jamie Tarses and Seth Gordon serving as executive producers. Sony Pictures Television will handle global sales.
