Logo Launches New Documentary Series "WHAT!? Logo Documentaries"

Season Includes World Premiere of "Loving Large" (October 2nd) and Logo Premiere of "The Most Hated Family in America" (November 6th)

NEW YORK, Aug. 28, 2012 -- Logo will have viewers exclaiming "WHAT!?" this fall with the launch of their new documentary series, "WHAT!? Logo Documentaries." Set to engage and possibly enrage viewers, the "WHAT!? Logo Documentaries" explore unusual worlds, people, and experiences outside the everyday and sometimes outside our comfort zone. It's a riveting peek behind the curtain exploring hidden worlds where unusual and fascinating individuals break new ground every day. The "WHAT!?" factor derives sometimes from fascination, and sometimes from outrage, at times joyous, at times raucous, always outside the ordinary, and never boring. The series kicks off with the world premiere of "Loving Large" on Tuesday, October 2nd at 10 PM ET/PT.

This season meet people who live large and the folks who love them, take a shocking look at the world of pedigree dogs, find out why the super rich are obsessed with super tiny animals, go behind the scenes of the breast cancer fundraising industry, and meet the most hated family in America.

The complete list of "WHAT!? Logo Documentaries" for this season includes:

WHAT!? Loving Large, October 2, 10 PM ET/PT (WORLD PREMIERE) -- Six-pack abs are nice, but some people prefer a little cushion for the pushin'! Welcome to the world of those who love having a few extra pounds to throw around - and be thrown around by. As the number of overweight Americans grows and grows, we'll take a look at the admirers of the flesh, and how admitting who you love isn't always easy, whether you're overweight or not. (60 minutes)

WHAT!? Pedigree Dogs Exposed, October 9, 10 PM ET/PT (LOGO PREMIERE) -- Pedigree dogs may win awards and be seen as status symbols, but their looks come at a price. Aggressive breeding is compounding increasingly severe and painful genetic defects in pedigree dogs. This explosive documentary goes behind the scenes of the dog show and breeding industries to reveal the factors that perpetuate and worsen these problems. (60 minutes)

WHAT!? Pink Ribbons, Inc., October 16, 10 PM ET/PT (U.S. PREMIERE) -- Breast cancer affects the lives of millions of Americans every day, and the disease has become a hot-button issue for corporations seeking to support a cause. But where does all the money raised in the name of breast cancer actually go? This feature-length documentary delves deep into the money trail behind the scenes, uncovering startling truths about what all of the corporate posturing actually achieves, and if it might inadvertently paint over the crushing effects of the disease. (120 minutes)

WHAT!? Super Tiny Animals, October 23, 10 PM ET/PT (U.S. PREMIERE) -- As technology improves our phones keep getting smaller and smaller, so why not get an ultra-mini-tea-cup Chihuahua to match? The business of selling miniature pets (pigs, monkeys and horses to name a few) has turned into a multi-million dollar industry but at what price? Narrated by Jane Horrocks ("Absolutely Fabulous"), the documentary features interviews with breeders and owners of these miniature furry friends revealing how far they'll go for the tiniest, cutest, critter on the block. (60 minutes)

WHAT!? The Most Hated Family in America, November 6, 8:30 PM ET/PT (LOGO PREMIERE) -- Meet Fred Phelps, one of the most controversial figures of recent times. As leader of the Westboro Baptist Church, Mr. Phelps has helped launch hate websites targeting the LGBT community, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews and entire nations including Sweden, Ireland, Canada, The Netherlands, and The United States of America. This documentary begs the viewer to ask the question "Is there such a thing as TOO much free speech?" Written and presented by the BBC's Louis Theroux, "The Most Hated Family in America" explores the freedoms that the First Amendment provides and tests our limits of tolerance as a society. (90 minutes)
