TLC Brings Back 'Progressive' Polygamist Series 'My Five Wives'
The A&E reality series Duck Dynasty nearly got derailed when one of its cast members echoed thoughts of many church goers regarding the gay lifestyle.
Come March, TLC will bring polygamy back into its lineup, and it likely won't generate a fraction of the controversy that Phil Robertson's musings met.
The one-hour special My Five Wives debuted last year on TLC, and now the network is offering nine new episodes of the polygamist clan.
As TLC says in its press release concerning the show, "families come in all different shapes and sizes ..."
The first new show will bow on March 9, and each show promises to look "behind closed doors" to see this "big, loving, progressive family."
Here's how TLC describes the new episodes.
Season one picks up where the pilot left off, catching up with the family as they experience the ups and downs of living a plural lifestyle. With a larger than average family, Brady and his wives are constantly on the run to keep up – new education opportunities, careers, and growing kids exploring their own lives and views of marriage prove that this family is anything but static. And on top of it all, adoption is up for discussion with one wife, and a possible pregnancy for another.
