TLC DRESSES UP TUESDAY NIGHTS WITH A FASHION-FILLED LINEUP

New episodes of WHAT NOT TO WEAR and the series premiere of BIG BROOKLYN STYLE air back-to-back on May 29 at 9 and 10pm ET/PT

(New York, NY) - TLC plans to make over Tuesday nights with two fashion-filled premieres on May 29. First at 9pm ET/PT, WHAT NOT TO WEAR returns with 13 brand-new episodes and a premiere episode like no other. For the first time in nine seasons, Stacy and Clinton plan an entire makeover in less than a day - a makeover that would normally take a week - and will conduct this makeover in front of a live studio audience of close to 200 people, which has also never been done before. The fashion victim, Ana, who is the self-proclaimed Lady Ga Ga of Long Island, has one of the most "unique" wardrobes the WHAT NOT TO WEAR team has ever seen. TLC also turns to the viewers for the first time to help in the makeover process, with fans voting through Facebook on hair styles, mannequin outfits, and the 'trashing' portion of the show. Past WHAT NOT TO WEAR contributors also make a special appearance in the studio audience, giving Stacy and Clinton an update on their makeovers and how their lives have been transformed ever since their episodes aired. The WHAT NOT TO WEAR team also interact with the audience and answer some of their questions on fashion, hair and makeup, and the latest trends. This season, the team also travels to Puerto Rico for another series first, as they give three lucky women a makeover they will never forget.

Following at 10pm, viewers will get another dose of Stacy London, but this time behind the cameras as executive producer. TLC premieres BIG BROOKLYN STYLE, a new series that follows husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan, as they revise and revolutionize the norms of plus-size shopping experiences in their Brooklyn clothing store, Lee Lee's Valise. Each episode will focus on three different customers as their intimate shopping experience at the store, combined with Lisa's distinctive clothing line, helps transform their lives. The network has ordered eight half-hour episodes.

The average size of an American woman is 14, but no average-sized American woman experiences a normal shopping experience at a typical fashion retailer as only 18% of clothes are a size 14 or over. At Lee Lee's Valise, women of all shapes and sizes feel confident, fashionable and sexy through Lisa's custom-made designs. Through drama, laughs and a lot of tears, Lisa and her team will transform their customers' wardrobe from shab to fab -- all through the simple and personalized accommodations to fit and flaunt each unique body type. While Lisa and Jim have a strong opinion about each and every item in Lee Lee's Valise, they always put the customer first. Often times the customer's feedback and personal shopping experience plays a vital role in how Lisa designs her line and stocks her shop.

BIG BROOKLYN STYLE is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for TLC. Executive Producers Stacy London and Julie Merson executive producing for Super Long Play. Co-executive Producer is Scott Shatsky. Elli Hakami and Jane Tranter are executive producers and Matthew Vafiadis is co-executive producer for BBC Worldwide Productions.

WHAT NOT TO WEAR is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for TLC. Jo Honig is Executive Producer.
