JAMIE LYNN SPEARS STEPS BACK INTO THE SPOTLIGHT IN NEW TLC SPECIAL "WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT"
One-hour special including surprise from big sister Britney Spears airs Sunday, June 26 at 10/9c
It's been nearly ten years since Jamie Lynn Spears was in the limelight, and for the first time ever, she and her family invite the world to hear her side of her story. Since becoming pregnant at age 16, Jamie Lynn stepped out of the spotlight to focus on raising her daughter. JAMIE LYNN SPEARS: WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT takes us into Jamie Lynn's everyday life as she balances her family while pursuing a career in country music. The one-hour special premieres Sunday, June 26 at 10/9c.
Being a newlywed to husband Jamie Watson and taking care of her now seven year-old daughter Maddie, Jamie Lynn juggles a lot while also making time to write and work on new music. Jamie Lynn learns she has the opportunity of a lifetime to perform at the biggest stage in country music - the Grand Ole Opry. As she travels between Louisiana and Nashville and prepares to perform a song very close to her heart, she struggles with being away from Maddie. The pressure is on as she hopes to make a name for herself in the most important performance of her career to date. But just before she is set to take the stage, big sister Britney Spears and older brother Bryan Spears show up for an encouraging surprise to support their little sister.
JAMIE LYNN SPEARS: WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT is produced by Gurney Productions for TLC.
