LITTLE WOMEN TAKE A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE WITH LIFETIME(R)'S "LITTLE WOMEN: NY" PREMIERING ON MARCH 25
LOS ANGELES, CA (March 5, 2015) Lifetime's docuseries Little Women: LA is a bona fide hit, and now the network is expanding the popular franchise by introducing fans to a new group of little ladies with the all new series Little Women: NY (#LittleWomenNY) premiering Wednesday, March 25, at 10pm ET/PT.
If fans thought the ladies of LA had challenges, wait until they see Little Women: NY. This group of friends navigates the Big Apple while facing obstacles that test people even of average height, including hailing cabs, catching subways, traversing the crowded streets and just about everything else that's part of a New Yorker's hectic life. Viewers first got a glimpse of New York's Lila Call, when she made waves with the Little Women: LA cast and now they'll get to see her in action on her home turf with her group of east coast besties including Jordanna, Misty, Dawn, Jazmin, Kristin and Jason. While they all scramble to try to make it big in Manhattan, the unique clique supports one another every step of the way as they prove that "if they can make it there, they'll make it anywhere."
Little Women: LA is cable's number one original series in its Wednesday 9-10pm time period among Women 18-49, while its season two premiere last month reached series highs in all key demographics.
Lila Call - The ringleader of the NY gang, Lila is outgoing, optimistic and known to bring on the drama. She's ready to start a new chapter in her life and take control of being a single gal in the city.
Jason Perez - Jason is studying Political Science at Queens College. He lives at home with his close-knit family and has worked as a chef in several New York restaurants.
Jordanna James - Jordanna's currently in a Broadway play and owns a burlesque group called Sass N' Betties. She recently moved in with her average height boyfriend, Anthony, her longest relationship to date.
Misty Irwin - Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Misty is the party girl of the NY group. She lives with Kristin and is at the crossroads in her relationship with her boyfriend, Joe, a college football player getting ready to graduate.
Dawn Lang - A fiercely independent career woman, Dawn currently works as a paralegal and has dealt with many health issues throughout her life. With her sister-in-law and castmate Jazmin there to support her, Dawn's a force to be reckoned with. Despite having been with an average height boyfriend for five years, Dawn is in no hurry to settle down.
Jazmin Lang - Jazmin comes from an average height family and feels like she is on the brink of her big break as a little person performer. Married to Dawn's brother David, she eventually wants to have kids, but currently has too many things on her list to do before they start a family.
Kristin Zettlemoyer - Known as one of the backup dancers in Miley Cyrus' controversial performance at the 2013 VMAs, her current roommate is castmate Misty. Kristin is the only little person in her family and has been divorced since 2008.
