TLC ANNOUNCES HOSTS LISA JOYNER AND DeVON FRANKLIN FOR UNPRECEDENTED TELEVISION EVENT "THIS IS LIFE LIVE"

Joyner and Franklin to Host THIS IS LIFE LIVE, Four Back-to-back Nights Revealing Raw Real Life Moments LIVE in Unprecedented Television Event Beginning April 23 at 10/9c --

TLC captures awe inspiring, shocking and emotional real moments LIVE in an unprecedented four-night television event premiering April 23 at 10/9c. THIS IS LIFE LIVE goes inside the lives of families across the country to deliver life altering moments as they unfold in real time. This groundbreaking event follows the personal journeys of families about to experience an extraordinary circumstance on LIVE television.

Emmy winning journalist Lisa Joyner is currently the host of TLC's LONG LOST FAMILY, which features heartfelt stories of people who have been separated for decades and are longing to be reconnected with lost loved ones. Previously, Joyner hosted Find My Family for ABC, and created, hosted and produced a late night talk show pilot for WETV. Joyner and her husband, actor Jon Cryer, produced the Tony-nominated play Ann, based on the life of the late Texas governor, Ann Richards. The married team also develop and produce television and digital content through their production company, Discount Sushi, in conjunction with Warner Brothers Television.

DeVon Franklin is an award-winning film and television producer, New York Times best-selling author, preacher and motivational speaker. A frequent contributor for The Dr. Oz Show, Franklin can regularly be seen on the show offering his guidance on spiritual wellness and life transformation. As President & CEO of Franklin Entertainment, Franklin most recently produced the hit film Miracles From Heaven, as well as the upcoming animated film The Star from Sony Pictures Animation, which will hit theaters November 10, 2017. He also co-authored the New York Times Best-selling book The Wait with his wife actress Meagan Good, and will release his next book The Hollywood Commandments later this fall. With a commitment to uplifting the masses through entertainment, Franklin has earned such distinctions as Variety's "10 Producers to Watch," Ebony Magazine's POWER 100 List of the 100 most influential African Americans in America, and being named by Oprah to her Super Soul 100, a collection of 100 awakened leaders who are using their voice to elevate humanity.

Each night, hosts Joyner and Franklin go live from different locations across the country, to share two unique stories of families and their loved ones as they experience an epic, pivotal moment. Every hour reveals compelling and dramatic stories with the twists, turns and huge surprises that happen along the way. From seeing the miracle of a woman walk for the first time and watching a father be reunited with a long-lost family member, to witnessing a deaf parent hearing a child say "I love you," viewers will share in unforgettable, personal and life-changing moments as they happen LIVE.

Watch these families go on a personal journey and share the joy, elation and surprise of once-in-a lifetime transformative moments. THIS IS LIFE LIVE will deliver authentic stories in an unfiltered way while revealing an unmissable live moment. And each night, immediately following the show, viewers at home will have the chance to have their questions answered by the participants in the live digital after show.

THIS IS LIFE LIVE is produced for TLC by Fly on the Wall Entertainment.
