From TLC Press Release:
TLC is opening the door – well, five to be exact – to a big, loving, progressive polygamous family. The new one-hour special MY FIVE WIVES features Brady Williams, his five wives, and their combined 24 children, who all live together on their large family property outside Salt Lake City, Utah. Following as he balances the needs, hopes, frustrations, and fears of each wife along with his own, the special offers a candid and open look at this controversial lifestyle, and goes behind closed doors to share the intimate details and complicated decisions they have to make as a larger than average family.
Believing in equality for everyone and a God who loves and accepts all, the Williams family emphasize that their choice to be together is more about their mutual love and commitment than it is about religion. Though their beliefs and their decision to leave their church have led them to be shunned by their community and estranged from many family members, the Williams believe their sacrifices are worth it.
MY FIVE WIVES premieres Sunday, September 15 at 9/8c, following an all-new episode of Sister Wives.
TLC.com doesn't have a page yet, I'll update this post with it when they do. They started showing the commercial for it during Sister Wives last night. But Starcasm.net has seemed to do some digging.
I am thrilled. This family is admitting they have been shunned by the church and do it for lifestyle purposes. And going behind closed doors. The stuff we want to know about, but Kody & Company won't tell.
Can't think of a catchy title. Open to whoever wants a stab at it.
ETA: TLC still hasn't made a full section for them like their other shows, but now has an "About" Page.
