The inspirational series about a couple overcoming challenges after a financial setback is based on the first play in GMC TV’s popular wedding vow-themed productions that aired on the network in 2012. FOR RICHER OR POORER premieres exclusively on GMC TV on Saturday, January 26th at 9 p.m. EST.
Based on original screenplays written by Cas Sigers Beedles and directed by Roger Melvin, FOR RICHER OR POORER follows our couple Kya (Luckett) and Aubrey Wilson (Dunbar)—who are on an upswing after suffering a major financial blow when Aubrey loses his six-figure job. Back on track and living a more modest lifestyle, the couple find themselves facing new challenges when they take a trip down memory lane with mementos given to each by ex’s, Kya’s new business takes off, home ownership on the horizon and dreams of expanding their family come in to play. As they explore issues such as honesty, trust, financial role reversal, and parenting, they find a new and deeper respect for their lifetime partner and build for a better future.
FOR RICHER OR POORER also stars Carl Payne (THE GAME), Buddy Lewis and DeEtta West.
