Sexy John Stamos Stars in a Two-Hour Original Movie Which ‘Marries’ Comedy with Controversy in America.
On the heels of one of America’s most controversial issues – same-sex marriage – A&E offers some comic relief with John Stamos and Grey’s Anatomy’s Eric Dane playing brothers who disagree on what equal rights mean when it comes to love in the romantic comedy “Wedding Wars,” also starring James Brolin and Bonnie Somerville. The two-hour original movie premieres Monday, December 11 @ 9 PM ET/PT only on A&E.
In “Wedding Wars,” love, family, politics and marriage rights collide when Shel (Stamos), a gay party planner, agrees to organize the nuptials for straight brother Ben (Dane) to Maggie (Somerville), the Governor of Maine’s (Brolin) daughter. After Shel finds out that Ben, a campaign manager for his future father-in-law, is behind the governor’s speech against same-sex marriage, he decides to go on strike for equal rights. Shel’s strike picks up steam and eventually spreads becoming the epicenter of a nationwide strike for the right to get married.
From executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan (Chicago, “The Reagans,” Hairspray) “Wedding Wars” is produced by Storyline Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. Directed by Jim Fall (Trick, The Lizzie McGuire Movie) and written by Stephen Mazur (Liar, Liar).
