Manhasset resident stars in
FYI docuseries
FYI network will premiere the
new series, Mikie Saves the Date,
on Tuesday, January 13, at 10 p.m., with eight, one-hour episodes.
Mikie Saves the Date follows event planner extraordinaire Mikie Russo of Manhasset as he creates uniquely personalized and visually arresting weddings for his clients. Set apart by his ability to resolve emotionally tense situations that arise when planning a wedding, Russo is able to defuse family disputes with ease. There is no fête, large or small, that this master of matrimony cannot handle.
With a do-it-yourself attitude and a passion for all things DIY, this Long Island native broke into the industry because of his passion for flowers. At a young age, he spent his days crafting floral arrangements that impressed his family and friends, which led to his first job with a florist, where he worked with brides—and ultimately, to his own event planning company, Michael Russo Events.
In each episode, Russo will help a different couple turn their dream wedding into a reality, no matter
the budget.
Mikie Saves the Date is produced for FYI by High Noon Entertainment. Jim Berger and Scott Feeley are executive producers for High Noon. Gena McCarthy and Audra Smith are executive producers for FYI.
