New York, NY � May, 2009 � Zero to six, in nine months! On June 11, 2007, Jenny and Bryan Masche became first-time parents... of sextuplets! And their once quiet lives have never been the same. WE tv's new original series RAISING SEXTUPLETS follows the marathon-running parents as they learn the hard way that no training can prepare you for parenthood with multiples. WE tv captures all the fun and chaos of life with six kids in RAISING SEXTUPLETS, premiering Thursday, June 11 at 10pm I 9c, � the same day as the Masche toddlers' 2nd birthday. The premiere will be preceded by a special encore airing of the fascinating WE tv original documentary OMG!

From tackling differences in parenting styles to figuring out logistics of taking six toddlers out for dinner, RAISING SEXTUPLETS is a no-holds-barred look at the realities of life with multiple babies. Viewers experience firsthand the Masche's discovery that parenting means nothing is ever predictable! Their fun, crazy household is anchored by family love and the devotion of Jenny and Bryan to each other and their children.
