TLC RINGS UP "EXTREME COUPONING" SERIES
TLC has ordered the new series EXTREME COUPONING, based on the one-hour special that aired December 29, 2010 and was viewed by 2.1 million P2+ viewers.
Each of the series' 12 half-hour episodes introduces viewers to America's most extreme "super couponers," sharing why they are so driven by the deals and witnessing their amazing couponing ways firsthand. From seeing their shocking stockpiles of merchandise they rack up to demonstrating their dramatic shopping skills, EXTREME COUPONING shares the world of everyday people in pursuit of extraordinary deals.
"EXTREME COUPONING captured the audience's attention because it taps into people's desire to save money and find the best deals out there. The series will share even more tips and profile passionate people who have turned clipping coupons into a way of life," said Eileen O'Neill, President and GM of TLC.
EXTREME COUPONING is produced for TLC by Sharp Entertainment and is expected to premiere this spring.
