Matt Goes to Iraq to Help a Family With Dwarf Children in One-Hour Premiere

Los Angeles, CA � The fourth season of LITTLE PEOPLE, BIG WORLD will premiere on Monday, October 13 at 8 PM PT/ET, it was announced today by TLC. The award-winning docu-series, which follows the lives of the Roloff family � comprised of both little and average height people � will kick off with a one-hour premiere that finds dad Matt Roloff traveling to Iraq to help a family with three dwarf children in desperate need of medical attention. The moving special will lead into 20 new episodes that find the entire family pushing boundaries.

"The opportunity to help this family in Iraq was both humbling and exciting, especially seeing firsthand what our troops are going through. It's awe-inspiring," said Matt. "Even after all I've accomplished in my life, this experience has reminded me that we all face challenges � some more extreme than others � and we need to take every chance we have to make an impact in the world around us."

The entire Roloff family will be involved in life-changing experiences this season. Matt returns from Iraq with big plans for the farm as the twins � Jeremy and Zach � prepare to graduate from high school. Daughter Molly is cramming for her drivers' license and youngest son Jacob hits the field as his focus on soccer grows. Mom Amy learns to let go � she realizes the kids are growing up and she needs to focus on herself, too. The house continues to undergo an extensive renovation, and the family heads to Florida for a much-needed vacation.
