Hitched Series Finale

8:00pm – Tuesday, September 1 on TV 3

What a season it’s been, and now the hit local series Hitched goes out with a bang with the series’ first ever same-sex civil union. Hitched concludes its first season on Tuesday, September 1st at 8pm on 3.

This week’s series final will join long-time partners Beth and Lisa as they prepare for their civil union. “They are our first same-sex couple getting hitched – with a civil union,” says Executive Producer Nigel Snowden.

But even though this may not be a traditional wedding, Snowden says that audiences will still identify with Beth and Lisa’s story. “It’s still a story of love, but again they have their own dramas along the way,” he says.

TV3’s Head of Factual Programming, Sue Woodfield, agrees saying that it’s the little quirks of each individual wedding, or civil union in this case, that make audiences identify with the couples featured in the series.

“Hitched is great – because we can all see ourselves in what’s happening on screen – we can laugh and cry with them,” she says.

But as with any big project there are always issues to be sorted out on the day, and this week’s civil union will certainly not be any different.

“I defy anyone to say nothing went wrong with their wedding plans,” says Woodfield of the issues which will arise in the episode.

However Hitched isn’t about the disasters of wedding plans going haywire; it’s about the lead up to the biggest day of a couple’s life, a day that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

“The great thing is that whatever’s happened behind the scenes it all comes together in the end,” Woodfield continues. “It always (well almost always) has a happy ending.”

Make sure not to miss Beth and Lisa’s happy ending when Hitched ends its first season on Tuesday, September 1st at 8pm on 3.
