Jessica Mulroney, the Jewish mom who is BFFs with Meghan Markle — and the rumored godmother of royal baby Archie — is getting her own Netflix show! The show, I Do, Redo, is set to help couples whose weddings didn’t go as planned.
“When I believe in something, I go after it at full speed, and I’m blessed to be able to create a show that truly inspires me,” Mulroney said in a press release. “We are aiming to make a significant difference in the lives of our chosen couples whose first weddings did not go as planned due to tragic circumstances. This is a side of the wedding industry that has never been shown on television before.”
The 30-minute episodes will focus on a couple who had a wedding disaster, and Mulroney — who played a major role in the royal wedding — will help these couples redo their big day. The first season, set to premiere sometime in 2020, will be 10 episodes.
“I really wanted to show a side of weddings that I believe in,” she said in an Instagram video. “I connect with couples all the time in such a real way. Although a lot of shows are very fun and exciting and show the Bridezillas and catty behavior, it’s definitely entertaining, but it’s not the side that I want to show. I want to show something real, something where we can help couples who’ve had a rough go.”

I DO REDO. Here’s the answer to all your questions today. Why this show? Why now? I was offered many bridal shows in the past but this is the stuff that matters to me. Authenticity and helping others is my only way. Thank you for all your support today. This is a project that means the world to me.
On that same post, literally everyone shared congratulations. Her husband, Ben Mulroney, wrote, “I’ve had a lot of reasons to be proud in my life. This moment tops the list. Congratulations honey.” Mindy Kaling (yes, Mindy Kaling — Jessica Mulroney is her stylist) wrote, “I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾.” (Powers that be: Please bring Mindy on the show!!) Misha Nonoo, another Jewish pal of Markle’s, commented “Congrats Jess! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻❤️❤️❤️” Even Canadian skating star Tessa Virtue shared her naches, writing, “So proud of you! ❤️”
Mulroney’s family also shared their congratulations. Her brother, John Brownstein, tweeted he was so proud.

Her sister, Liz Brownstein, who lives with her family in Israel, shared on Instagram, “proud sister over here,” and Mulroney re-posted it, kvelling that her “sister can watch it from Israel!!!”
As Town & Country put it, “Not everyone can have a royal wedding, but at least some can have a royal wedding planner.”
Mazels on the show, Jessica!
