TLC’S “90 DAY FIANCÉ: THE OTHER WAY” RETURNS! MEET THE COUPLES FEATURED IN AN ALL-NEW SEASON

(Los Angeles, CA) – A new season of the hit series 90 DAY FIANCÉ’: THE OTHER WAY returns to wrap up the summer with a blast of romance and drama. Meet the two new couples taking the plunge for love, and catch up with four returning pairs fighting to make things work abroad:

Steven, 25 (Salt Lake City, Utah) and Alina, 20 (Russia) – New Couple

Steven, a devout Mormon from Utah, is giving up his life in America to be with Alina, a beautiful Russian woman he met a year ago on a language app. When the Russian border closes because of the coronavirus pandemic, Steven and Alina come up with a backup plan to meet up and marry in Turkey instead. Once there, secrets of Steven’s past and Alina’s suspicions of infidelity begin to threaten their future together, and Alina questions if she truly knows the man she’s about to marry.

Ellie, 45 (Seattle, Wa.) and Victor, 38 (Colombia) – New Couple

After falling for Victor while on a trip to South America, the lovestruck couple continued their long-distance relationship for two years. Victor lives on a small Colombian island called Providencia, and Ellie has decided it’s time to leave her successful restaurant business and city life in the U.S. for small-town, island living on their little slice of paradise. As she prepares to move, the couple’s issues with trust, cheating and financial concerns are dwarfed when category five hurricane Iota passes over the island of Providencia, leaving behind unimaginable destruction. Ellie loses communication with Victor the night before the storm, and after days of silence, she travels to the island, distraught and desperate to locate him.

Kenneth, 58 (St. Petersburg, Fla.) and Armando, 32 (Mexico) – Returning Couple from Season Two

Now that Kenny has moved to Mexico and proposed to Armando, they are ready to dive into planning their beautiful wedding. Armando wants to spare no expense, but Kenny is nervous about how much this wedding is going to cost. One thing they agree on, however, is their concern over whether Armando’s family will support them as a gay couple and attend their wedding. First, Armando must open up to his father about his engagement to Kenny. Meanwhile, Kenny and Armando begin to plan long-term. As Kenny grapples with the guilt of missing his children in Florida, Armando brings up the topic of giving Hannah a younger sibling. This opens up a complicated debate over whether they both agree on expanding their family, when and how, via adoption or surrogacy.

Jenny, 63 (Palm Springs, Ca.) and Sumit, 33 (India) – Returning Couple from Season Two

After moving to India and back several times in the wake of extreme relationship challenges, Jenny is now a year into living in India and is losing hope over whether she will ever get to marry Sumit. Her visa has been extended due to the pandemic, but knowing that can’t last forever leads the couple to consider how else Jenny might be able to stay in the country. Ultimately, however, Sumit continues to push for his parents’ approval to marry, and a surprising solution is presented: Sumit’s mother offers to move in with them in order to train Jenny to become more of a traditional Indian daughter-in-law.

Ariela, 29 (Princeton, N.J.) and Biniyam, 31 (Ethiopia) – Returning Couple from Season Two

Eight months after the birth of their son, Avi, Ari and Bini are still living together in Ethiopia. Their baby bliss is quickly interrupted when Ari shares the news that Leandro, her ex-husband of ten years, has decided to come visit. With their relationship already on shaky ground, Biniyam is convinced that Leandro is only visiting to try and win Ariela back. Then, during a routine pediatrician appointment, Ari and Bini learn that Avi needs hernia surgery. Ari decides that taking Avi to the U.S. to receive medical care is the best option, despite Bini begging her not to go for fear of her never returning, just as his first wife did with their young child. As their disagreements get more and more heated, Ari gives Bini a final ultimatum to save their relationship.

Corey, 34 (Mill A, Wa.) and Evelin, 28 (Ecuador) – Returning Couple from Season One

With the coronavirus lockdown in Ecuador lifted, Corey and Evelin can finally start planning their wedding. However, things between the couple are extremely rocky after Corey admitted that he almost hooked up with another woman in Peru while he and Evelin were on a break. The truth about this other woman is much more involved than Corey lets on, but he’s not the only one keeping secrets. As Evelin’s family urges her to reconsider marrying Corey, she drops a huge bombshell.

The series returns to TLC on Sunday, August 29 at 10:00/9:00c.
[via press release from TLC]
“I LOVE A MAMA’S BOY” RETURNS FOR ITS SOPHOMORE SEASON WITH MORE JAW-DROPPING LOVE TRIANGLES THAN EVER BEFORE

Returning for its sophomore season, I LOVE A MAMA’S BOY features two new mama’s boys and picks up with three returning trios. The romantic entanglements continue with even more overbearing mothers as these significant others continue to fight for love, attention and alone time with the men they love. From a mother joining their son’s honeymoon to sneaking around on mother/son date nights, who will take the leading role in their man’s life…their mother or their mate? I LOVE A MAMA’S BOY returns to TLC on Sunday, August 29th at 10PM ET/PT.

Meet new and returning love triangles:

Tia, Theous and mom Carolyn (new)

Carolyn expects Theous to be at her beck and call, but Tia needs him to draw some boundaries with his mom before she’ll meet him down the aisle. Carolyn’s bad knee makes her extra needy of Theous’s time, but that doesn’t stop her from intruding into every aspect of their lives, including a Vegas vacation.

Tracy, Bryan and mom Jayne (new)

Jayne is oblivious to how she interferes in her son’s life, wedding, marriage and now honeymoon! Tracy needs to set the record straight and create boundaries they can all live by, but Bryan’s loyalty to his mom erases any line Tracy draws. As Jayne makes the honeymoon more about her vacation time than watching the kids, Tracy and Bryan struggle to find any romance and alone time. It’s more of a honeymoon from hell!

Emily, Shekeb, and Mom Laila (returning)

Emily and Shekeb are back together, but the women will have to accept each other if the couple can truly move forward. Emily is sure that a ring on her finger will force progress, while Laila holds her ground and tries to convince Shekeb otherwise.

Kim, Matt, and Mom Kelly (returning)

As Kelly tries to take over Matt and Kim’s wedding and their new house, a job offer in Texas derails everyone’s plans. While Matt contemplates his future, Kim and Kelly go head to head for his love and affection.

Stephanie, Mike, and Mom Liz (returning)

Stephanie and Mike are at a fork in the road. Stephanie wants to go one way to follow her dreams, while Liz is waving Mike over in the opposite direction to plant roots close to her. Their bond may not be strong enough to survive Liz, as her meddling and bad advice may finally pull these two apart for good.

Don’t miss the social first series, I Love A Mama’s Boy: Who Knows Best? where the moms and significant others will simultaneously answer trivia questions focused on their mama’s boy to find out who knows him the best. The mama’s boy will moderate the friendly competition by asking each question and announcing the “winner” at the end.

Four Frugal Families Cash in on TLC’s New Penny-Pinching Series “So Freakin Cheap”





Four Frugal Families Cash in on TLC’s New Penny-Pinching Series “So Freakin Cheap”
Meet the four unique families that share one extraordinary ability to turn everything into a deal.
[via press release from TLC]
FOUR FRUGAL FAMILIES CASH IN ON TLC’S NEW PENNY-PINCHING SERIES “SO FREAKIN CHEAP”

–Series Premieres Monday, June 28 at 10PM ET/PT–
(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Meet the four unique families that share one extraordinary ability to turn everything into a deal. Although their methods are quirky and at times comical, it’s not all fun and games for the family and friends of an extreme bargain hunter. Tensions rise and emotions are high when each family is forced to confront their loved ones in the hopes of living a more normal life as they approach major milestones, including planning a wedding, renovating a home, buying a new car and laying down the path for a career in fashion. SO FREAKIN CHEAP premieres on Monday, June 28 at 10PM ET/PT.

The families featured include:

The Tran Family (Orlando, Fla.)

Rosanna and Danny Tran look as if they live the life of luxury in their upscale neighborhood and large, beautiful home, but they still find a way to be self-proclaimed “Crazy Cheap Asians.” The two parents immigrated to the United States in pursuit of their American Dream, built a successful business from the ground up and raised four children, 28-year-old Alex, 26-year-old Elizabeth, 19-year-old Brandon and 13-year-old Charisma. The women of the family have made a tradition of participating in pageants and finding a way to do them on the cheap, but there is trouble brewing in the Tran home when youngest daughter Charisma wants to strike out on her own as a fashion model, instead of being a fashionably frugal pageant queen like her mother and older sister.

The Watson Family (Mesa, Ariz.)

Returning from their debut on the original series EXTREME CHEAPSKATES, self-proclaimed “Princess of Cheap” Shelley and her husband Tracy Watson have done their best to instill in 27-year-old daughter Ashley and 23-year-old daughter Brittney their core values of frugality. Ashley has always been on board with her mother’s ways, whether using their dog’s hair to restuff the pillows, making dinner from the neighbor’s leftover pasta or planning Ashley and Colby’s wedding on a $1,000 budget eight years ago. However, youngest daughter Brittney still struggles to accept the extreme lengths her family will go to save a dollar, which poses a major problem when Shelley delivers stunning news to Brittney: she wants to set the bar even higher – or lower – for Brittney and her fiancé Shane’s upcoming wedding, using a total budget of $750 to cover the cost of the venue, the wedding gown, reception, food and entertainment.

The Guiles Family (Minoa, N.Y.)

Becky and Jay Guiles are raising their two young sons, seven-year-old George and four-year-old Colden, in a house with almost no furniture or real appliances. Since leaving her job to raise their first son and becoming a stay-at-home-mom, Becky has also made it her duty to become “The Most Frugal Mom in America.” She finds creative ways to save money by washing their dishes in the river, hanging old wire hangers from the basement pipes to heat their home and telling her sons that their birthday is on the same day so they only have to throw one party. But, Becky and Jay don’t see eye-to-eye when it comes to being cheap. As they embark on a major home renovation project, Becky is determined to keep to her shoestring budget, and Jay has had it with his wife’s over-the-top cheap methods and never-ending DIY projects putting a strain on their relationship and potentially putting their lives at risk.

The Clayton Family (Stonecrest, Ga.)

Tony and Angela Clayton are at odds over Tony’s extreme cheapskate ways. A stay-at-home dad, Tony prides himself on spending next to nothing for cleaning products and household utilities, using such innovative techniques as making his own cleaning solution out of urine, making a DIY bidet to save on toilet paper and running an extension cord to the neighbor’s house to save on electricity bills. While 17-year-old daughter Cierra is stuck in the middle and too embarrassed by her father’s frugal ways to invite her friends over to their home, Angela works hard as the sole breadwinner and would like to spend money on nice and even necessary things, like a new car. But, having put his wife and daughter on a coin allowance after their spending got out of control by his standards, the cost of such a huge expense for Tony creates friction in their relationship and household.

Now, Stacey is hopeful to give the gift of fatherhood to her younger husband, Florian, but at the age of 46, conceiving naturally doesn’t come without its challenges. Will Florian’s strict faith and opposing views on IVF leave the couple praying for a miracle? Darcey is left questioning her engagement to Georgi after a distressing encounter with his ex-wife.

This season, with pandemic safety protocols still in place, Dr. Lee is busier than ever. These brand new episodes will feature some of her most challenging cases to date including a patient who has enormous growths on his nose that drip pus, attract flies and are so large, that he can barely breathe – it is a record-breaking case of rhinophyma; two sisters who reunite and bond over their undiagnosed mystery face bumps; a woman who has been called a monster due to her genetic condition known as neurofibromatosis, that causes head to toe bumps; and a return patient with hopes that Dr. Lee can remove more of her face growths that stem from a birthmark on her face. With some of these cases being so extreme, Dr. Lee occasionally teams up with specialists to provide the best outcome possible.

This season, the brides arrive with a renewed energy and fresh set of challenges like a blind bride trying to find her perfect silhouette, a throuple with two brides sharing a budget, and a virtual bride having second thoughts on her pandemic purchase. But some familiar challenges like last minute shopping, over-the-top requests, outspoken entourages and one very picky former dance mom still test the team. And in a special episode, Randy’s former on-set assistant gives us a peek behind the curtain as she searches for her own wedding dress. Plus, weddings take on a new meaning this season as families and friends gather to celebrate for the first time since the pandemic started. Join the conversation using #SYTTD.

Her virtual fitness business with friend Jessica is thriving, and a recent move back to her hometown of Greensboro, NC means she’s closer to family and friends. In fact, Buddy is actually living at her house, but he spends the majority of time at his new girlfriend’s place. Whitney is exploring a new relationship of her own, as an online flirtation buds with a man who lives in Paris – the two met while Whitney was taking virtual French lessons, but long distance, especially cross-continental, is never easy, so the two of them are working to figure out exactly what they have. Whitney is also pursuing her goal of receiving her personal training certification, but she soon finds that anti-fat prejudices make it hard to develop a client base. Another dream of Whitney’s – motherhood – remains intact, but her journey is filled with challenges. Meanwhile, living in her hometown means Whitney can spend more time with her parents, but after taking them to receive their second vaccine shot, her mom takes a nasty spill, further tweaking her already-strained back. As the season progresses, Whitney and her gang are fully vaccinated and the world is opening back up, meaning the possibilities are seemingly endless; celebratory trips ensue, but one big question remains: will Whitney get the opportunity to meet her Frenchman in person? Join the conversation using #MyBigFatFabLife. MY BIG FAT FABULOUS LIFE is produced by Pilgrim Media Group, a Lionsgate Company, for TLC.

TLC’S NEW SERIES “YOU, ME & MY EX” EXPLORES PRICKLY DYNAMICS BETWEEN COUPLES WHOSE EXES ARE STILL IN THE PICTURE

– Season Premieres on Sunday, June 20 at 10PM ET/PT –

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – How close is too close when it comes to staying friends with your ex? Premiering on Sunday, June 20 at 10PM ET/PT on TLC, YOU, ME & MY EX follows five couples who deal with an ex who is still intricately connected to their past partner and very much a part of their daily lives. Viewers will watch these couples navigate the uncomfortable and awkward moments when a past love is still front and center. Relationships, marriage and children are no longer one-size-fits-all as the couples in this series redefine the norm, break the rules and forge their own paths towards the lives and families they want and dream of.

Viewers will get a first-hand look into the unique advantages and challenges that come with having an ex be the third wheel in a relationship. We’ll see one couple renew their vows with hopes of both of their exes attending, two exes get matching tattoos and one former pair living together with a new girlfriend and coexisting under one roof. Will these couples be able to juggle a third in their relationships – or will the past resurface and become too much to handle?

The people featured this season include:

Jerry, Kayeelovey and Jerry’s ex-wife Jessica

Jessica and Jerry met when he asked her if she would model for his company. Several children and one divorce later, their relationship looks very different now. Jessica and Jerry are currently living together, raising their children under one roof. When Jerry decides to move his girlfriend, Kayeelovey, into the house, the balance is upset and Jerry’s relationship with each woman is put to the test. Kayeelovey must navigate sharing Jerry with his children and Jessica while Jerry struggles with balancing the extreme personality differences of both women, and the fact that Kayeelovey is around the same age as his oldest son.

Jimmy, Wendy, Jimmy’s ex-wife Lisa and Lisa’s fiancé Jack

It was love at first sight when Jimmy and Lisa met at a bar in 1987, and they quickly fell in love and got married. But things ended badly soon after Lisa gave birth to their son. Shortly after, Jimmy started dating Wendy, who is shockingly similar to Lisa in her looks and personality, and they eventually got married. Now, Jimmy and Lisa consider each other best friends and talk on the phone for hours almost every day and even own a business together. Wendy believes that Lisa is jealous of her relationship with Jimmy, while Lisa says she will always be his first love. Lisa still holds a lot of pain and secrets from her past with Jimmy that seem to be holding her back in her own relationship with her fiancé, Jack. Jack deals with the intimacy between Lisa and her ex-husband and the more he learns about their past the more questionable things look.

Alex and Caroline and Alex’s ex-boyfriend Stephen

Alex and Caroline met at work where Caroline would frequently give Alex advice for his rocky relationship with his boyfriend Stephen. When Alex and Stephen broke up, Alex went from being Caroline’s gay best friend to her boyfriend. He had a hard time feeling accepted throughout his life, and now he and Caroline struggle with others not understanding Alex’s fluid sexuality and their relationship. Stephen is still very present in Alex’s life, they went through a lot as a young gay couple and although their relationship ended due to Stephen cheating, they have remained best friends and talk every day. As Caroline and Alex build their future together, she has to learn to navigate her life with Stephen’s constant presence.

Josh, Danielle, Josh’s ex-wife Jennifer and Chantel, Jennifer’s wife

After five years of marriage, Jennifer and Josh went their separate ways. Soon after, Jennifer realized she was attracted to a woman, and she fell for her coworker, Chantel. Josh moved on when he met Danielle, and a few months into their relationship they found out they were pregnant. These exes came to an agreement with their new partners to try to maintain a calm and stable environment for the sake of Josh and Jennifer’s son. However, Jennifer and her new wife, Chantel, have decided they want a baby of their own, and have asked Jennifer’s ex, Josh, if he would donate his sperm to the cause.

John, April, John’s ex-wife Loren and Roy, April’s ex-husband

Loren and John were married and had three kids together and they lived next door to April and Roy, who also had three kids. Both couples were going through hard times in their relationships and John and April ended up falling in love. Loren and Roy were blindsided by their spouses’ connection and things got rocky as both divorces were finalized. Despite this rough patch, Roy continued to stay close with April. Now, to John’s dismay, it seems April might have two husbands; she still does Roy’s taxes, they get matching tattoos and she still makes him “honey-do” lists. Now that the dust has settled, John and April have decided to honor their love in a big way–by having the wedding they always wanted, but never had, and by inviting their exes to celebrate their marriage.

These outrageous moments add to the shocking relationships that we couldn’t peel our eyes away from past seasons. While following the lives of these six devoted and extreme duos, viewers will have a front row seat to their unique rituals and unbreakable bonds. sMothered returns on a brand new night and premieres Monday, May 31 at 9PM ET/PT.

Meet the new and returning duos:

Amy & Carina (new) the Hawaii mother/daughter pair are truly inseparable – panty swapping, joint showers, sleeping in the same bed… you name it! They believe they are connected on a spiritual level and knew each other in a past life. Neighbors describe their house as a circus with their 11 animals including two great danes and eight ducks. Even though they love their lifestyle, Amy is starting to realize that she and her daughter may share an unhealthy attachment that prevents them both from having functional romantic relationships. She grapples with the guilt but will she be able to bring herself to break away from it?

Karla & Rykia (new) are Alabama mother and daughter besties whose “closeness” includes exchanging Brazilian waxes! They share everything together and are always on the same page. Karla loves to meddle in all her kids’ lives and while Rykia seems to love it, her brother Rasheed feels the complete opposite. He is so turned off by their need to over share inappropriate information that he has put off introducing his girlfriend of 9 months. As new developments happen in Karla’s life and her childrens, she tries to hold on to her bestie and keep everything the same.

Lisa & Lauren (new) are two southern belles who act more like sisters than mother and daughter. There’s no such thing as boundaries with these two. They facetime while they take baths, wax each other’s mustaches and Lauren constantly sleeps over at her mother’s house, despite the fact that it causes friction with her wife, Laura Leigh. Lauren and her wife have been trying to conceive a child for two years and are taking a break to save some money. At least that’s what her wife thinks! Lisa and Lauren have other plans to make sure Lauren is able to have the family of her dreams.

Sunhe & Angelica (returning) share a vault-like tightness that somehow Angelica’s fiancé Jason has been able to crack…sort of. When Angelica and Jason announce their engagement and pregnancy to their families, things go downhill fast. Not only do Angelica and Jason have Sunhe’s options to consider, but now Jason’s mom is in the picture and she isn’t going back home anytime soon! What is supposed to be the happiest time for a couple leaves Angelica wondering if she wants to marry Jason at all.

Kathy & Cristina (returning) the loud Italian duo from Chicago are living apart again after Carlo quit his job at his family’s pizzeria and cancelled Cristina’s plan for a home renovation. Once the pandemic hit, Carlo decided he wanted to open his own pizzeria, and Cristina became a business owner overnight. With the stress of the new business, Cristina pulls away from Kathy, who is desperately clinging to their old traditions. But Kathy won’t give up, and finds ways to insert herself back into her daughter’s life, whether Carlo wants her there or not!

Dawn & Cher (returning) the two dynamic brunettes known for their coordinating outfits and loud personalities are reunited in Florida after spending months apart due to the pandemic. Not wanting to be without Cher and her granddaughter Belle for that long ever again, Dawn hatches a plan to convince Jared to let Cher and Belle stay in Florida with her. Dawn is never one to be scared by boundaries, but has she gone too far this time?

TLC CELEBRATES FAMILY WITH THE RETURN OF THREE BELOVED SERIES THIS SPRING

— Returning Series Include DOUBLING DOWN WITH THE DERRICOS, LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD and 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – This spring, TLC welcomes back three fan-favorite families as they experience the joys and challenges of raising children. DOUBLING DOWN WITH THE DERRICOS is back with all of the heart that fans fell in love with as the Derricos navigate health scares, a potential pregnancy and one Derrico who’s ready to start dating. LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD returns with wedding planning for Amy, farm ownership decisions for Matt and new milestones for Zach and Tori’s babies. And it’s a season of independence for the whole family on 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS as the kids look to strike out on their own.

LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD – Premieres on TLC on Tuesday, May 11 at 9pm ET/PT

Like the rest of America, the Roloffs are still hunkered down in the midst of the pandemic. As Matt reimagines how to run the family business, Zach contemplates co-owning and running the farm with his dad. Is he ready to handle all that would come with living and working with his father? Meanwhile, after packing up thirty years of memories and moving out of the farmhouse for good, Amy and her fiancé Chris start planning their upcoming wedding. But what happens when they realize they don’t share the same vision for their big day? And Zach and Tori see firsthand the little victories and big challenges that go along with raising two children. Join the conversation using #LPBW. LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD is produced for TLC by Bright Spot Content, an All3Media America company, in association with Gay Rosenthal Productions.

7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS – Returns on TLC on Tuesday, May 25 at 8pm ET/PT

When the pandemic started, it brought all the Johnstons back together under one roof, but now the older children are anxious to break out on their own. Viewers last saw Trent and Amber delivering an ultimatum to Jonah: he needed to find his own place within three months. Now, fresh off of celebrating his 21st birthday, Jonah is juggling the hunt for a new place to live, a job search and a long-distance relationship. Meanwhile, rising tensions between Anna and Amber have resulted in Anna looking to move out as well. Neither of them is sure how to navigate their strained relationship, and it’s affecting the other Johnstons: it’s one of the primary reasons Elizabeth is also ready to find her own place. With so many changes on the horizon for the family, each Johnston is faced with the realities of growing up. All the while, Trent and Amber fight to keep their family as tight-knit as they’ve always been – even if they don’t all live in the same house. Join the conversation using #7LittleJohnstons. 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS is produced for TLC by Figure 8 Films.

DOUBLING DOWN WITH THE DERRICOS – Premieres on TLC on Tuesday, June 1 at 10pm ET/PT

The Derrico family returns for a brand-new season centered around raw, real and emotional life moments. There is never a dull moment for this bunch comprised of 14 children, including four sets of naturally conceived multiples and singletons. In these new episodes, the larger-than-life Derricos face unforeseen challenges that catapult them into the most challenging year of their lives. Shaken to their core, Karen and Deon receive unsettling news that three-year-old Diez will potentially require surgery on his skull. Meanwhile, singleton Darian continues her quest for independence, but Deon is as protective as ever, especially when she announces she wants to begin dating. Adding to Deon’s protectiveness, Karen considers that he might have OCD, and when she announces she thinks she might be pregnant, GG has an emotional conversation with the both of them. The Derricos always have a way of finding balance with life’s highs and lows and, this season they take a trip to the mountains, where the kids get to see snow for the first time and, for Halloween, they celebrate with a fun, 70s-themed dance party. This season continues to highlight how much heart and soul this family has, as Karen and Deon work through an incredibly tumultuous time with grace, love and humor.

It’s All About Sisterly Love in TLC’s New Series “Extreme Sisters”





It’s All About Sisterly Love in TLC’s New Series “Extreme Sisters,” Premiering Sunday, April 25 at 10PM ET/PT
From eating the same foods, to sleeping in the same bed and even sharing a boyfriend, some of these sister fascinations are sure to make you think twice about how close sisters can really be.

IT’S ALL ABOUT SISTERLY LOVE IN TLC’S NEW SERIES “EXTREME SISTERS,” PREMIERING SUNDAY, APRIL 25 at 10PM ET/PT

(Los Angeles, CA) – Sisterly love takes on a whole new meaning in TLC’s upcoming series, EXTREME SISTERS, following the most obsessive and inseparable sibling relationships. Some sister bonds are closer than others, but these siblings take their obsession to the extreme. From eating the same foods, to sleeping in the same bed and even sharing a boyfriend, some of these sister fascinations are sure to make you think twice about how close sisters can really be. EXTREME SISTERS premieres Sunday, April 25 at 10PM ET/PT.

“Having a close knit family is something most people aspire to and at TLC, we love to explore relationships of all kinds,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “In Extreme Sisters, we will introduce sets of inseparable sisters whose bonds are raw, honest and perhaps a little unconventional. Their sibling kinship brings the meaning of sisterhood to a whole other level!”

Despite what others may think about their uncanny relationships, these EXTREME SISTERS are unapologetic in their dedication to one another. However, when the opinions of society, family, romantic partners, and some major life changes come into the play, it remains to be seen if these sisters will be able to defend and maintain their exceptional bond. What are these sisters willing to lose to keep their obsession with each other intact? In this brand new series, viewers will get a glimpse into some of the most unique sister lifestyles revealing how they navigate each of their rare relationships throughout life.

Meet the sisters:

Anna and Lucy “One in the Same” eat the same foods, go to the bathroom together and shower together. They are literally never apart. The sisters have begun thinking about their future as mothers and have decided that when they do get pregnant, they want to be pregnant with Ben’s baby at the exact same time. Yes, Ben is Anna and Lucy’s shared boyfriend, and potential shared father of their future children.

Brooke and Baylee “The Candaces” are so close that they shared the same bed growing up and continue to do so even though Brooke is married, and her husband is uncomfortable with Baylee sleeping with them. They shower together, pop each other’s pimples and also share the same name – Candace. Technically, the two are named Candace-Brooke and Candace Baylee, and Brooke has even passed down the tradition to her daughter, Candace-Ace.

Brittany and Briana “New Sister Moms” always dreamed about marrying and getting pregnant at the same time as one another they have what is called a quaternary marriage which is very rare. The sistershave successfully achieved this goal, with just a few months difference in their pregnancies. The identical twins now venture into motherhood together, sharing a house with their twin husbands and consider themselves both moms and dads to their baby and future baby.

Christina and Jessica “Psychic Sisters” have led parallel lives through every major life event. They married, were pregnant, and went through divorces together. Their obsessive closeness is the reason for both of their divorces and because they believe they are each other’s soul mate. Today, they live .2 miles away from one another, raising their children together as single mothers. They are inseparable and feel physically sick when they are apart. The sisters even have a code word for each other that signals to the other that no matter what they’re doing at that time, they must drop it and rush to one another’s sides.

Patrix and Patrica “Right Hand Sister” live their lives intwined from the moment they were born. Patrix has an apartment but rarely uses it and spends a majority of her time living at Patrica’s house. Patrica was born with a third of her fingers missing on her right hand, so Patrix has always been by her sister’s side in the face of bullies and to step in to help Patrica with tasks that aren’t easy to do without two properly formed hands, such as cutting nails, shaving and applying makeup. Patrix truly is Patrica’s right hand sister.
