TLC Breaks New Ground With the Docu-Sitcom "Leave It to Niecy"

All-new series, featuring Niecy Nash, premieres March 25

TLC - the destination for the most engaging family docu-series on television - moves into new territory with the premiere of the docu-sitcom LEAVE IT TO NIECY, featuring actress/comedienne Niecy Nash. Blending together production and storytelling elements from both the traditional sitcom genre and the world of non-scripted reality shows, LEAVE IT TO NIECY offers a new balance of real-life humor through the lens of the beloved comedy format. The eight-episode half-hour series will premiere March 25 at 10/9c.

TLC viewers were first introduced to Niecy when she walked down the aisle and married her husband Jay Tucker in front of nearly 5 million viewers in TLC's 2-hour event "Niecy Nash's Wedding Bash" last June. Now, LEAVE IT TO NIECY takes viewers into the couple's home, which includes her three kids and her opinionated mother. Together, they balance work, life, and love to create a modern blended family.

The family includes:

· Niecy - hard-working actress/comedienne, well known for Reno 911 and her season on Dancing with the Stars. She's never been busier, but Niecy places family first - and doesn't put up with any foolishness under her roof.

· Jay - an electrical engineer, Jay is working on blending these two families together. He's adjusting to living in a household of mostly women, especially parenting teenage daughters for the first time.

· Miss Margaret - Niecy's mom, who lives with the family, and helps take care of the kids when Niecy's working. She's quick to challenge her daughter, and isn't shy with an opinion.

· Dominic - Niecy's oldest child, Dominic has the world ahead of him and dreams of growing his creative talents. He's always trying to debunk his mom's schemes, enlisting his sisters for help.

· Romallis - Jay's son. Niecy's kids have welcomed Romallis into the family, and he is adjusting to going from being an only child to finding his way in a big and boisterous bunch.

· Donielle - the middle child, Donielle has dry sense of humor. Always calling it as she sees it, she is quick to see through her mom's hijinks, especially when it comes to attempts at family bonding.

· Dia - the youngest child, Dia has a big personality. She wants to grow up faster than Niecy will allow and she's always pushing the limit to no longer be seen as the baby of the family.

"TLC is well-known for its real life series about remarkable families, and LEAVE IT TO NIECY takes that genre to a new level. We knew we had something special with Niecy and her family - their natural comedy helped us re-think how to bring their story to our audience in a way that truly fit our brand," said Amy Winter, GM, TLC.

"Jay and I are thrilled to be part of something so positive and exciting," said Niecy. "TLC was the home to my wedding special and after the marriage it just made sense to invite them back to document the journey of our love while doing it with a full house of family and fun."

LEAVE IT TO NIECY is produced for TLC by Shed Media US. Executive Producers are Jen O'Connell, Stephanie Schwam, and Kevin Williams.
