A romantic comedy is one thing, but NBC’s “Marry Me,” which debuts in the fall, seems to be a romantic tragedy. Annie and Jake are in love and want to get married, but they just can’t seem to get the proposal right.
This is the story of a couple in love trying to have the dream engagement they want. Unfortunately, that’s not how live works. Here’s the official synopsis:
Six years ago, Annie (Casey Wilson, “Happy Endings”) and Jake (Ken Marino, “Eastbound & Down”) bonded over their mutual love of nachos and they’ve been inseparable ever since. Now, after returning from a romantic two-week island vacation, Jake’s all set to pop the question. Before he can ask, though, Annie lets loose on Jake for his inability to commit. She was expecting him to “put a ring on it” in paradise and now Jake’s perfect proposal is ruined. Not wanting to spend the next 60 years talking about that mess of a proposal, Jake and Annie decide to hold off on the engagement until they can do it right. Yet if history tells us anything, it’s when we really want things to go right that they all tend to go wrong. The only thing we know for sure is these two are destined to be together whether they can get it together or not
“Marry Me” will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
