Prime Video India has commissioned Wedding.con, a true crime docuseries that aims to put a spotlight on the “dark side of online matchmaking.”
Produced by BBC Studios India Production, and directed by Tanuja Chandra, the series launches on the Amazon streamer on 29 December.
The series follows the stories of five women as they embark on a journey to fulfil their dream of a happy marriage. However, their search for the perfect life partner takes a distressing turn as they fall victim to financial and emotional exploitation by conmen.
These imposters, assuming fake identities and posing as suitable grooms on online platforms, leave the women betrayed. Emphasising the need to raise awareness and take action against such scams, the five-part docuseries sheds light on the vulnerability of women who, in their pursuit of companionship, become easy, unsuspecting targets of deceitful schemes.
“In Prime Video, we have a collaborator who shares our vision of producing impactful content that can resonate with a diverse audience. Wedding.con isn’t merely a collection of intriguing stories, it’s a thought-provoking narrative designed to foster awareness”, said Neha Khurana, Head of Factual Entertainment and Documentaries, BBC Studios India Production. “
