LOVE IS ALL IN THE FAMILY ON TLC'S NEW SERIES SISTER WIVES

--Seven-part Series Kicks-off September 26th with Hour Long Special--

(Los Angeles, CA) -- TLC brings viewers inside the rarely seen world of plural families with the premiere of SISTER WIVES, an engrossing seven-part series following Kody Brown, his three -- soon to be four -- wives and their many children. Premiering on Sunday, September 26 at 10 PM (ET/PT), SISTER WIVES explores the complex daily life of a polygamist family. SISTER WIVES introduces audiences to husband Kody -- along with his three wives; Meri, Janelle and Christine and their combined 13 children -- showing how they attempt to navigate life as a "normal" family in a society that shuns their lifestyle. From their unconventional family structure and living arrangements to financial challenges, each half hour episode exposes the inner workings of a polygamist household, revealing the unexpectedly tight-knit and loving relationships between Kody's wives.

SISTER WIVES also captures the intense dynamics surrounding a man juggling three wives while attempting to keep it a secret from the outside world-- but the general public is not the only challenge that the Brown family unit is facing. The series begins with Kody announcing plans to take on another wife and her three kids -- and although expected, the news is met with mixed feelings. Meri, Janelle and Christine were married before starting families so all of the children grew up as siblings. And for sixteen years, the SISTER WIVES have established their own role within the group and worked together to maintain a cohesive, loving unit. Bringing on a fourth wife could easily disrupt the balance, changing lives forever. The series chronicles the growing pains as Robyn and her kids assimilate into the family and the sister wives work through the insecurities and uncertainties that are inevitable to their chosen way of life.

MEET THE SISTER WIVES:

· Meri (first wife): 39-years old, married 20-years and has one daughter named Mariah 14.

· Janelle (second wife): 40-years old, married 17-years and has six children -- Logan, 15; Madison 14; Hunter, 13; Garrison, 11; Gabriel, 8 and Savanah, 5.

· Christine (third wife): 37-years old, married 16-years and has five children with one on the way -- Aspyn, 14; Mykelti, 13; Paedon, 11; Gwenelyn, 8; Ysabel, 6 and Truely.

· Robyn: 31-years old, soon to be fourth wife with three children from another husband -- Dayton, 10; Aurora, 7 and Breanna, 5.

SISTER WIVES is produced by Advanced Medical Productions on behalf of TLC. Executive producers for Advanced Medical Productions are Bill Hayes, Kirk Streb, Chris Poole and Tim Gibbons.
