DESCRIPTION:
(from A&E's press release) A&E puts a comedic twist on one of America's most controversial issues - gay marriage - with "Wedding Wars," premiering on Monday, December 11 @ 9PM ET/PT. The romantic comedy from executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (Chicago, "The Reagans," Hairspray), stars John Stamos ("ER," "Full House"), Eric Dane (X-Men: The Last Stand, "Grey's Anatomy"), James Brolin ("The Reagans," Traffic, Catch Me if You Can) and Bonnie Somerville ("The O.C.," "Grosse Pointe"). Not all is fair in love and war, especially when the war is between brothers. 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 gay marriage, he decides to go on strike for equal rights. Shel's strike picks up steam and eventually spreads nationwide, leaving the impending wedding vows in the hands of a tacky planner and overall, in question.
