LITTLE COUPLE, BIG PLANS
TLC's The Little Couple returns Tuesday, March 20th at 10PM ET/PT
[Los Angeles, CA] -- TLC's The Little Couple shares the lives of Bill Klein & Jen Arnold who are just like any other couple in their early years of marriage -- except for the fact that they're both under 4 feet tall. Premiering Tuesday, March 20th at 10PM ET/PT, season five kicks off with a long anticipated moment- the couple finally moves into their custom built dream home in Houston, Texas. Throughout the season, viewers will join Bill & Jen as they continue to make big strides toward starting a family, and juggle their flourishing careers.
The couple's journey picks up after last season's gripping finale, where it was revealed that their surrogate Cindy suffered a miscarriage. Despite this heartbreaking setback combined with the couple's difficult fertility treatments, Bill & Jen's overwhelming desire to start a family propels them to try again, and even explore options outside of surrogacy.
"Bill & Jen have shared their personal challenges and successes, none more compelling than their path to parenthood. Their experience reveals how challenging starting a family can be and TLC looks forward to continuing this intimate journey with them this season." said Howard Lee, SVP-Production & Development, TLC.
In addition to fertility trips in Los Angeles, and Dr. Arnold's 24 hour shifts at the NICU, Bill & Jen are launching a brand new business. Follow as Bill puts his business expertise to the test by opening up a pet store, Rocky & Maggie's, with Jen's parents. Building a business from scratch is stressful enough, how will Bill handle the extra challenge of dealing with his in-laws?
Season 5 of TLC's The Little Couple premieres Tuesday, March 20th at 10PM ET/PT. The series is produced by LMNO Productions for TLC.
