TLC PICKS UP NEW SERIES WITH "TODDLERS & TIARAS" BREAKOUT STAR ALANA
"HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO" Slated to Premiere August 2012
(New York, NY) - TLC first introduced viewers to TODDLERS & TIARAS star Alana, aka " Honey Boo Boo" in January, where her amusing personality and self-confidence won over viewers and her self-proclaimed nickname became a fixture in pop culture. The network has now picked up the new series HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO, an inside look into Alana's world where the six-year-old pageant sensation proves that she is more than just a Go-Go Juice-drinking beauty queen. When she's not chasing after crowns, Alana's with her family in rural Georgia doing what her family does best: four-wheeling through mud pits and picking up road kill for the family cookout. HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO is slated to premiere August 2012 with six half-hour episodes.
Each episode follows Alana and her family: stay-at-home mom June, chalk-mining dad Sugar Bear, and sisters 12-year-old Lauryn "Pumpkin", 15-year-old Jessica "Chubbs", and 17-year-old pregnant Anna "Chickadee". From family outings to loud and crazy family get-togethers, HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO takes us off the pageant stage and into the unapologetically outrageous family life of the Honey Boo Boo clan.
HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO is produced by Authentic Entertainment for TLC.
