A&E PRESENTS "THE MARRIAGE TEST" FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS JAY MCGRAW AND DR. PHIL MCGRAW

FOUR COUPLES IN CRISIS FIGHT TO DECIDE IF THEIR MARRIAGES ARE WORTH SALVAGING WITH THE HELP OF RENOWNED MARRIAGE COACHES

90-MINUTE SPECIAL PREMIERES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 AT 10 PM ET/PT

New York, NY -- September 13, 2013 -- A&E Network presents "The Marriage Test," a 90-minute special from executive producers Jay McGraw and Dr. Phil McGraw that explores the troubled relationships of four couples who agree to live together under one roof for seven days of in-depth counseling to try to save their marriages. "The Marriage Test" premieres on Saturday, September 21 at 10 PM ET/PT.

In the special, four couples who have found themselves at the end of their rope come to "The Marriage Test" house hoping to resolve their deeply rooted problems and begin to heal their relationships. Led by husband-and-wife marriage coaches Will Craig and Laurie Gerber, the couples take part in a series of exercises that include individual and group therapy sessions all aimed at salvaging their troubled unions. Will and Laurie watch the residents 24/7 in order to uncover each person's issues and ultimately attempt to save these marriages by forcing the couples to save each other. At the end of the week, each twosome will have to decide whether recommit and stay together and or break up and go their separate ways.

The couples include: Cory and Joann, married for four years and struggling with Cory's inability to put his marriage first in his life and Joann's stress management; Jacque and Danny, married 10 years, fight constantly in front of their children and are aware of the negative impact it will have on them if it continues; Thomas and Jeanine, married nine months, face her inability to compromise and ongoing trust issues as well as his emotional cheating; and Shannon and Joey, married for 12 years during which time Joey has cheated more times than he can count and Shannon inexplicably continues to put up with it.

"The Marriage Test" is produced for A&E Networks by Ghost Mountain Productions and Bienstock Young Media. Executive producers are Jay McGraw, Carla Pennington, Phil McGraw, Eugene Young and Jay Bienstock. Executive producer for A&E is Drew Tappon.
