IT'S A GIRL, AND A BOY, AND THREE MORE GIRLS FOR THE JONES FAMILY TLC WELCOMES QUINTS BY SURPRISE TO ITS MONDAY NIGHT LINEUP
Series Set to Premiere August 30 at 10PM (ET/PT)
Los Angeles, CA - TLC welcomes multiples to Mondays with the premiere of QUINTS BY SURPRISE on August 30th at 10PM (ET/PT) as part of the all new ten-episode series.
Ethan and Casey Jones met in the seventh grade, married after college, and around their 10-year anniversary decided to give their six-year-old daughter Eliot a baby sister or brother. Instead, the couple welcomed quints: Brooklyn, Ryan, Jack, Britton, and Lila. Throughout the special and series, viewers revisit the Jones' as they navigate the obstacles and the joys of raising a family when everything is multiplied by five. The family returns to TLC to reveal all-new experiences and adventures as their quintuplets enter their toddler years.
Five more babies leads to five times the expenses from cribs to diapers to play toys. In the TLC premiere episode of QUINTS BY SURPRISE the family decides to downsize and put their Austin, Texas home on the market and hold an open house. This means a day out and playtime at the local pool for energetic Eliot and her 17-month-old quintuplet sisters and brother. Never a dull moment, this family goes through all the trials and tribulations many other American families are facing just multiplied by six.
The series is a commission for TLC Executive Produced by Jonathan Nowzaradan for Megalomedia.
