FOUR FABULOUS, LARGER-THAN-LIFE BEST FRIENDS WORK TOGETHER TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES IN A NEW TLC SERIES, “1000-LB BEST FRIENDS”

— New Series Premieres on TLC and discovery+ on Monday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Building on the success of 1000-LB SISTERS, which continues to deliver ratings gold with its highest-rated season ever, TLC today announced its newest transformation series, 1000-LB BEST FRIENDS. Vannessa and Meghan are larger-than-life best friends, and along with their pals Tina and Ashely, they are battling obesity with heart and humor. This gregarious girl gang will embark on a journey of sisterhood, weight loss, and self-discovery. 1000-LB BEST FRIENDS premieres on TLC and discovery+ on Monday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT.

“The ratings success of 1000-lb Sisters has made one thing clear – our audience loves personal journeys of transformation featuring authentic, bold and very boisterous personalities, which is why we’re excited to introduce this brand-new series, 1000-lb Best Friends,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “This show is about weight loss and leading a healthier lifestyle just as much as it is about a tight-knit group of girlfriends that love to have a good time. By the end of the first episode, viewers will be asking themselves if their friend group has a Vannessa, a Meghan, a Tina or an Ashely.”

Vannessa and Meghan, whom viewers first met on TOO LARGE, were bullied for their weight all the way back in middle school and ever since then, they have had each other’s backs. When Meghan peaked at almost 600-lbs, they decided it was time to take control of their lives and pursue weight loss surgery. Meghan qualified while Vannessa didn’t, however Meghan’s weight loss has stalled out since she went ahead with the surgery. Power comes in numbers and now with Tina and Ashely, they are making a pact and recommitting to their original goal to turn their lives around. Ashely previously underwent weight-loss surgery, but she’s put back on all the weight she lost and is once again pursuing surgery to get back on track. Tina, on the other hand, isn’t ready to take on the risks of surgery, so she plans to lose the excess weight on her own.

From camping to swimming in the ocean, these friends are determined to get out of the sedentary habits that have led them to where they are now. Whether it’s exercise, doctors’ appointments or therapy sessions, they’ll rely on each other to get through it all. But with four big personalities, they are bound to ruffle each other’s feathers. Will the gang be able to overcome their insecurities and self-doubt in time to attend their high school reunion as a fiercely fabulous, united front?

Viewers can go behind-the-scenes in the digital midform series 1000-lb Best Friends: Inside the Episode, premiering on discovery+ and TLCgo, where Meghan & Vannessa sit down, spill the tea, and provide commentary on all episodes. Meghan & Vannessa are also giving their two cents on high fashion, trendy hairstyles, and Gen Z slang in a hilarious social media series.

TLC Continues Growing Their Tuesday Night Family Lineup with New Series “I Am Shauna Rae”

TLC CONTINUES GROWING THEIR TUESDAY NIGHT FAMILY LINEUP WITH NEW SERIES “I AM SHAUNA RAE” PREMIERING ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 11 AT 10PM ET/PT

— New Series Follows the Life of 22-Year-Old and 3’10 Shauna Rae, Whose Growth was Stunted Following a Rare Form of Brain Cancer —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Shauna Rae may look like a child, but she desperately wants to be treated like an adult. Premiering on Tuesday, January 11 at 10PM ET/PT, I AM SHAUNA RAE follows Shauna as she navigates the extraordinary challenge of trying to live a normal adult life despite her appearance. Diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer at six months old, Shauna’s treatment allowed for remission, but resulted in a side effect no one predicted – she stopped growing. The chemotherapy made her pituitary gland almost dormant, leaving Shauna with a childlike appearance and standing at only 3 feet and 10 inches tall– the average size of an 8-year-old. Except, Shauna is 22.

“When I first heard about Shauna Rae, I couldn’t stop asking questions. I was fascinated by her life and it became quite clear TLC needed to tell her story,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “Similar to so many series on TLC, hers is one with its own unique set of challenges and she faces those with courage, heart, and a punch of sass.”

Shauna is determined not to let her size stop her from trying to live her best life, even though by appearances, the world has trouble seeing her as an adult. With her zest for life and wicked sense of humor, Shauna wants to assert her independence and explores dating, driving, and moving out of her parents’ house. All of this with the help of her supportive and hilarious family, who only have her best interest in mind, but can sometimes be overly protective. Viewers will experience life through Shauna’s eyes, as she gives an unfiltered and honest view of what life is like.

TLC’S NEW SERIES “ADDICTED TO MARRIAGE” FOLLOWS WOMEN WHO LOVE TO BE IN LOVE

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – ADDICTED TO MARRIAGE follows the lives of four intriguing women who love to get married. Meet Monette, Shae, Amy, and Kecia, who collectively have been down the aisle a total of 20 times! Each marriage enthusiast is ready to say “I do” again, but are the men in their lives ready? Watch ADDICTED TO MARRIAGE to find out on Tuesday, November 16 at 10PM ET/PT.

Some of the women know exactly what they want in a future marriage while others struggle with their pasts. One of the brides-to-be has a list she refers to as the ‘Triple A’: attention, affection and appreciation whereas others grapple with revealing how many times they’ve said ‘I do’ because of their lurking insecurities of potentially failing at yet another marriage. The women know they trust quickly and love hard but the relationship highs are often met with intense drama and scrutiny by the men they love. Will their willingness for a happy ending with Prince Charming push the men in their life away or will they finally have the happily ever after they have been longing for?

Meet the women:

· In Utah, Monette is gearing up for her 12th marriage, this time with boyfriend John. Despite pressure from friends and family to avoid another walk down the aisle, Monette has her sights set! Just as Monette is cooking up ways to push John into marrying her, John’s beginning to wonder if he’s ready to be the next in a long line of husbands for Monette.

· In California, 30-year-old Shae desperately wants to make her boyfriend Joe her next husband, but she’s keeping a huge secret from him. Shae hasn’t told Joe she’s been engaged four times and married twice. The secret weighs heavily on Shae as she works up the courage to share her past with Joe before it’s too late.

· In Idaho, Amy has her aim directed at Geno to become husband #5. However, she just told Geno about her past four failed marriages long after they had been together for years, had a baby together and moved from Florida to Idaho to be closer to her friends and family. Though Amy and Geno are in love, Amy worries that her past has scared Geno and is sending him running in the opposite direction.

· In New Jersey, glamorous and successful attorney Kecia has found the love of her life, again. Current fiancée Ernst loves Kecia, despite her past three failed marriages. Kecia won’t settle for anything less than the best, and she’s pushing hard to make marriage #4 unforgettable, despite the cost or impact on her relationship.

Kim, 50 (San Diego, CA) and Usman “Sojaboy,” 32 (Sokoto, Nigeria)

A year ago, 50-year-old divorcee Kim reached out to Nigerian musician Usman, aka Soja Boy, on social media as a fan of his music. But after months of calls, texts and video chats the two formed a connection, and Kim found herself head over heels in love, graduating from ‘fan’ to ‘potential girlfriend.’ Considering his divorce from another older American woman that he also met online, Usman has hesitations about committing to Kim until they meet in person, so he invited her to Tanzania where he plans to shoot a music video. Kim is risking everything for love and heading to Tanzania in hopes that Usman will realize she is nothing like his ex-wife and decide to commit to taking their relationship to the next level.

Caleb, 28 (Chandler, AZ) and Alina, 27 (Saint Petersburg, Russia)

Caleb and Alina connected and developed a friendship on social media as teens, but they lost touch for 13 years until they serendipitously matched on a dating app when Caleb was planning a trip to Alina’s home country Russia. Those plans fell through, but their newly rekindled virtual friendship blossomed into something much deeper. Now, they’re finally ready to meet for the first time to see if their emotional connection is deep enough to overcome their physical differences. Alina is a little person, and her condition prevents her from walking and standing for long periods of time, so she frequently relies on a wheelchair, making Caleb, a free-spirit, wonder if he’ll be able to adjust to her needs. Further, Caleb also has to win over Alina’s roommate and protective best friend Elijah, who joins them on their introductory rendezvous in Turkey.

Gino, 51 (Canton, MI) and Jasmine, 34 (Panama City, Panama)

Gino, a 51-year-old automotive engineer, is leaving for Panama to meet the love of his life, Jasmine, a 34-year-old American literature teacher. After divorcing his Brazilian wife of seven years, Gino began to lose hope of ever starting his own family, until he met Jasmine on an international dating site and fell in love with her personality, brains and beauty. He is hoping to propose and get Jasmine pregnant by the end of his trip so that he can have the family he’s always wanted. Will Jasmine be the one that finally sweeps Gino off his feet or will her jealous side put a damper on their future together?

Memphis, 34 (Muskegon, MI) and Hamza, 28 (Kairouan, Tunisia)

Memphis, a divorced single mom of two, met Hamza, a 28-year-old man from Tunisia, online eight months ago. Having had an unstable childhood, followed by a tumultuous dating history, Memphis has been searching for a consistent and reliable partner with whom to complete her family – and she found that in Hamza. After a few months of daily texts and video chats, Hamza proposed and Memphis said yes! Despite a significant language barrier and the skepticism of her friends and family, she is packing her bags and travelling to Tunisia with plans to get married on this trip. But, does Memphis really know her fiancé?

Mike, 34 (Thiells, NY) and Ximena, 24 (Pereira, Colombia)

Despite his best efforts at finding love, Mike had been single for most of his life – until he matched with Ximena, a 24-year-old Colombian single mother of two, a year ago on an international dating app. Ximena speaks no English and Mike speaks only a tiny bit of Spanish, but that hasn’t kept them from falling in love with the help of a translator app. They’re already talking about marriage and kids, so Mike is traveling to Colombia with plans to propose and bring Ximena and her sons to the US. Has Mike finally found true love after years of searching, or is Ximena more in love with the gifts and money he sends her than with Mike himself?

Ella, 29 (Idaho Falls, ID) and Johnny, 34 (Jinan, China)

Ella, a country girl from Idaho with a self-proclaimed obsession with Asian culture, met Johnny, her “Asian prince” on a social media platform exclusively for Asian men and white women. Once they started video chatting, they realized they’d found their soulmates in one another. The pandemic has made it difficult for them to meet in person, and China’s borders remain closed, but after a year and a half and a number of false starts, they’re finally preparing for Johnny to visit Ella in her hometown and get engaged. Despite having video chatted ‘intimately’ over the past few months, Ella’s history with rejection from past romantic interests due to her weight has her worried about what it will be like when she and Johnny are together in person. Still, they’re both ready to prove that their love can conquer all, if they can overcome family skepticism and pandemic barriers.

Ben, 52 (Fraser, MI) and Mahogany, 24 (San Bartolo, Peru)

When Ben, a former pastor in a strict, conservative religious sect, broke free from confinement and his marriage, he struggled to find his way forward. After a bout of homelessness, he eventually found work as a model and caught Mahogany’s eye after being featured in a fitness magazine. Her fateful DM led to an intense texting relationship. Bonded by their similar religious views, they fell in love and began making plans to meet in person, despite a 28-year age difference. Ben’s friends and family see countless red flags, from the significant age gap between them to the fact that they have never video chatted, but Ben believes that God has brought them together and this is the path he is meant to follow. Is their relationship divine will, or is Ben blinded to the possibility that Mahogany may not be the person she said she is?
