Seven has set late September to premiere its new drama miniseries Secret Bridesmaids’ Business, and TV Tonight can reveal Seven sources have confirmed commercial breaks of no longer than 1 minute.
Seven will screen 4 x 1 minute breaks across all 6 episodes, in a bold move to give viewers an experience much closer to the streaming model. It’s a vote of confidence in the series and good news for viewers.
The series, based loosely on a play of the same name by Elizabeth Coleman, draws upon the Mornington Peninsula for much of its backdrop. It features Abbie Cornish, Katie McGrath, Georgina Haig, Alexander England, Oliver Ackland, Dan Spielman, Annie Jones and Nicholas Bell.
Intriguing flashes of the wedding that is to come open the series… the flower girl running, blood on the wedding dress, the flash of a knife… Yet before we discover who might be the collateral damage, we pick up the story three months earlier…
A bride’s perfect wedding turns deadly after one of her bridesmaids unwittingly invites a malevolent stranger into their lives, triggering a life‐threatening chain reaction that blows open a hidden world of intimate secrets. In this addictive, six‐part, romantic thriller, the power of female friendship could prove the difference between life and death.
Sunday September 29 on Seven.
