TLC LOOKS IN ON "OUTDAUGHTERED" AND "RATTLED" FAMILIES TO WITNESS THE UPS AND DOWNS OF PARENTHOOD
- New Episodes of OUTDAUGHTERED premiere on Tuesday, July 11 at 9/8c and RATTLED season two premieres at 10/9c -
(LOS ANGELES) - Parenthood is joyful and exhilarating, but it is also nerve-wracking and exhausting. Ultimately, becoming a mom or dad is one of the most life-changing experiences a person can go through. Two of TLC's series are returning to explore how this roller coaster of parental emotion is affecting a few families. On Tuesday, July 11th at 9/8c OUTDAUGHTERED will unveil how the Busby family is coping with the quintuplets entering their terrible twos. Then at 10/9c, RATTLED will return to introduce some expecting parents with unexpected levels of drama.
Adam and Danielle Busby struggled to have a baby for years and their prayers were answered when their daughter Blayke was born. Four years later, in an attempt to give Blayke a sibling, Danielle became pregnant with not one, but five babies. In April 2015, the Busby family transformed from a family of three to a family of eight overnight. The Busby quints are the first set of all-girl quintuplets in the US, and the first globally since 1969. Now, this history-making brood is turning terrible two!
Ten new one-hour episodes of OUTDAUGHTERED follow this resilient family as the girls flourish -- Blayke off to school and the quints quickly becoming toddlers; walking, talking, and exhibiting their independence. With "Mimi" moving out, caring for the girls is a hectic full-time job for Danielle and she wishes Adam was around to help more often. To add to the couple's stress level, they learn Hazel may require a second eye surgery. Adam starts to realize that he hasn't been himself since the babies were born and knows he needs to start to seek out answers. All the while, Adam and Danielle work on figuring out how to make sure that they nurture their relationship.
RATTLED explores the lives of five couples from across the country who are about to embark on the long journey of raising a new baby. Executive Produced by Flower Films' Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, viewers will go along for the ride as they watch these parents experience a wide range of challenges, triumphs and milestones.
The second season includes ten one-hour episodes that follow: Aly and Josh, high school sweethearts whose family came to be because of a true miracle when Aly, a stage 3 cancer survivor was shocked to find out she's pregnant after years of infertility, and that's not even the end of this couple's unbelievable story; champion pro wrestler Brooke and Weston, who struggle over who will be the breadwinner and if Brooke will be able to return to her beloved career; Krystal and Jarrel, who unexpectedly found out they were pregnant after breaking up, and get off to a problematic start as Jarrel doesn't believe he is the father. RATTLED also catches up with some of the previous season's couples, including Ashley and Tyson Gardner and their "quad squad" as the girls continue to hit more milestone moments and the family realizes they have outgrown their house. Also returning is Doug and Marsadie, who endured intense arguments last season during and after the birth of their baby girl. Marsadie hopes Doug will start taking his new life seriously, and fully commit to her by proposing.
OUTDAUGHTERED is produced by Discovery Studios Productions in association with The Boardwalk Entertainment Group for TLC, and RATTLED is produced for TLC by Magilla Entertainment and Flower Films.
