TLC REVEALS REMARKABLE PERSONAL STORIES IN "TRUTH BE TOLD"

Los Angeles, CA � TLC today announced the new series TRUTH BE TOLD, premiering on August 12. Taking viewers into variety of compelling and engaging personal stories, the series exposes different perspectives to share insight into the lives of those living with these often-misunderstood challenges. The six one-hour episodes, airing Wednesday at 9 PM, include:

I'm a Hoarder: Wednesday August 12 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

Compulsive hoarders hold onto worthless possessions to the point where clutter makes their homes practicably unlivable. For Bernie, Charlene, and Aflie, hoarding is jeopardizing their emotional wellbeing and personal relationships. They all recognize the need to change, but are any of them ready?

I'm Obsessed with My Pet: Wednesday August 19 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

American pet owners spend countless dollars every year on various goods and services for their pets. To some, their animals are more than pets, they are constant companions, surrogate children and are the main focus of that person's life. This is the case with Judy and her model/beauty pageant dog, Trixie, Debby and her service animal monkey, and Jenny and her 11 rescue cats.

I'm Addicted to Plastic Surgery: Wednesday August 26 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

Cosmetic procedures have become common in recent years, but the quest for perfection and eternal youth can sometimes lead to a true addiction. Jeannine, Steve and Krissy all have their own reasons for continuously going under the knife, but they all have an ideal in their heads they may never reach.

I Have OCD: Wednesday September 2 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

OCD forces those afflicted to perform obsessive rituals to settle persistent anxious thoughts. No two cases of OCD are the same, but universally, the condition can have devastating effects to those coping with it. Wendy, Ryan and Delia all have compulsive tendencies they fear are ruining their life.

I Have an Embarrassing Medical Condition: Wednesday September 9 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

Medical conditions that some may call "embarrassing" can have devastating emotional and physical consequences to those affected. With the nature of their rare conditions, Anne, Lee and Jeannie have had to fight off stereotypes, isolation and discomfort while learning to cope with their conditions.

I Have a Child with Special Needs: Wednesday September 16 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

There are no norms when it comes to parenting a child with special needs, except unconditional love and immeasurable rewards. Varying disabilities have affected the lives of Eve, Marybeth and Renee, but these moms will all do whatever it takes to make life as "normal" as possible for their children.

TRUTH BE TOLD is produced for TLC by Pink Sneakers Productions. Executive producers are Kimberly Cowin and John Ehrhard.
