TV show description:      
This TV series follows the lives of four friends who spend their spare time performing in a wedding band called “Mother of the Bride.”

A perennial bachelor and the band’s lead singer, Tommy (Brian Austin Green) is sexy and stylish. He’s the life of the party on stage and in the bedroom. A bad boy with a good heart, Tommy’s philosophy and band credo is “Make it the big night, not just for the bride and groom, but for everybody.” He sometimes goes a little too far so it helps to have a great band to back him up.

Stevie (Harold Perrineau) is the new bassist in the band, but he’s also a seasoned vet who’s rubbed shoulder with all the greats in the music industry. A session musician for more than 20 years, Stevie has recorded with the who’s who’s of the music business. However, he’s never seen on an album cover because he’s never been an “official member” of a band — until now. He still records with today’s hit-makers, but he feels like a real rock star when he plays with these guys.

For every guy with a wife, kids and career, Eddie (Peter Cambor) is their guitar hero. Monday thru Friday, he’s a responsible dad and husband who juggles PowerPoint presentations, playdates, and occasional date nights. On Saturdays, he packs the amps and band gear into the mini-van and becomes a weekend rock god. He’s the one guy in the band who has to do the “check-in call” with his wife between sets. Eddie’s only solo time is when he gets to jam on stage. Once off-stage, he has to help his best friend, Tommy, get out of his own jams.

Barry (Derek Mille) has always been behind his brother Eddie -– on stage, in looks and popularity, even in age. Barry’s five months younger. From laser shows to pyrotechnics to rotating drumkits, he’s all about bringing the arena rock experience to black-tie events.

Ingrid (Kathryn Fiore) and Eddie’s two kids love it when their parents tell the story of how they met — she fell in love watching him perform at the first wedding the band ever played. The part of the story they leave out, however, is how they hooked up in the coat-check room during the father-daughter dance. Ingrid is willing to give Eddie a “hall pass” to play in the band on weekends, but he has to be careful about straying too far. She’s Seattle’s most-decorated CSI detective, which means her forensics skill set can pick up microscopic evidence of the raucous out-of-control situations Tommy often pulls him into.

Roxie Rutherford (Melora Hardin) owns Seattle’s premiere wedding and events planning firm, Rutherford Events. There’s nothing she won’t do for a client -– including shipping sand in from Fiji for an island-themed party. Roxie’s the person behind the most important moments and best nights in people’s lives. Roxie and Tommy are two strong alpha personalities constantly struggling over who gets their way.

Rachel (Jenny Wade) is the junior wedding planner who can’t seem to plan her own wedding. Despite being recently promoted, Rachel is still treated like Roxie’s personal assistant. With an unorthodox mix of neuroses and earthy sexiness, Rachel is torn between Rutherford and Tommy. She’s often forced to carry the stress from the band’s antics on her slender shoulders. And since Rachel has a hard time saying no, she tends to service everyone else’s life before dealing with her own.

Series Finale:     
Episode #10 — End of the World As We Know It
After a falling-out with Rutherford, the guys are recruited by Roxie’s rival event planner (and former assistant) Emily Corgy (guest Erinn Hayes) to play an “End of the World” party. The guys don’t feel good about the career move after learning Tommy and Emily have started dating. Worlds collide when they learn the event they’re scheduled to play has been double-booked with another “End of the World” party thrown by Rutherford. Even worse, it’s headlined by Mother of the Bride’s rival – the Def Leppard tribute band Armageddon It (fronted by guest Ken Marino). It’s a recipe for disaster.
First aired: January 19, 2013

    How did this show get cancelled? Everybody I know would either watch it or DVR it. We all loved it. It was something different from all the stupid reality shows and other crap thats on tv. I was really looking forward to atleast another season of it. TBS needs to change their minds and bring it back. 10 episodes isn’t that long of a time to build a good following. Cmon TBS give it atleast another 10 episodes.

    Another good tv show that bit the dust. The way that the last episode ended made you think that it was going to be coming back. I say bring the show please.

  3. Alcal says

    TBS another bad decision. Cast was such a good blend of personalities, and the concept was fresh and different from most of the junk on tv now. Bring it back!

    The first few episodes were ok. I knew this show wouldn’t last. There was just nowhere for it to go. Glad they cancelled it before it got really terrible. Would have been a major embarrassment for the actors in this show most of which are fairly talented.

    There is such crap on TV and finally a great show, great music, Funny and so much more. I couldn’t wait each week for a new episode. And then only 10.
    What if Seinfeld had been axed after its first 6 episodes. But No, they stuck at it and got better. This show is already great and different.
    Maybe the execs need one more crime investigation show because there are so few.
    I cant watch one more show with someone locked up in a basement or one more staged so called reality show or toothless swamp people.

    Great show. They do great covers of classic songs. I don’t care if they are really playing or not. In an industry where networks copy each other within 3 months (storage wars/ auction hunters, American Idol/The Voice, etc) , this show was brilliant and highly origional. It was like Spinal Tap and a sitcom combined. Great one-liners and it makes a mockery of some of the classic things that happen to the folks that work in the wedding industry.

    Bring this show back.

      Love the show! It brought me BACK to TBS. I watched on television and online. Told friends about it and they enjoyed it as well. I agree with John and Shawn wholeheartedly. I thought it was fresh, musically entertaining and a great cast of characters and actors. Hey, TBS are you listening? I got a winner in this show. You broadcast a show I like and watch then you snatch it away (so I go away). Please reconsider and bring us another season; if not, consider rebroadcast.
