BBC Studios is to produce a five-part nightly special leading up to the royal wedding for PBS.
Royal Wedding Watch will be produced by BBC Studios’ Topical and Live Unit and broadcast nightly from a central London studio. It will also include a live report from Windsor in every programme.
Lisa Ausden, creative director, BBC Studios’ Topical and Live Unit, said: “BBC Studios is thrilled to be working with PBS in this unique collaboration, giving US viewers a front row seat in the build-up to the big day.”
Shawn Halford, PBS’ senior director, programming added: “From cakes to choristers, banquets to bouquets, gowns to crowns, viewers will get a fun and informative insider’s briefing on royal etiquette, an unprecedented look at the elaborate planning, secrecy and care that goes into this royal wedding that has captured the imagination of people around the world.”
