LIFETIME EXPLORES UNEXPECTED MOTHERHOOD IN TWO NEW PROVOCATIVE DOCUSERIES, 30 SOMETHING GRANDMA AND KNOCKED UP

30 SOMETHING GRANDMA PREMIERES NOVEMBER 15 AT 10PM ET/PT

30 Something Grandma follows the stories of three women, Patricia, Prudence and Chantel, who are all about to become grandmothers in their 30's! Having been young moms themselves, these women now face the reality that their own daughters are all about to give birth as teens. The series will reveal the challenges for the two generations as they try to balance their relationships, career goals and personal dreams. Each family is on an emotional roller coaster as they struggle with the daunting, yet exciting moment that will redefine their lives forever.

In 30 Something Grandma, Patricia experiences déjà vu when she discovers her teen daughter Britana is pregnant, having been a teen mom herself. After Patricia unexpectedly loses her job, the stress of looking for work and having to supporting the growing family reaches an all time high. Prudence is thrown for a loop when she discovers her 15-year-old daughter, Candace, is pregnant. Prudence's overbearing rules cause a rift in her relationship with Candace, but a heart-to-heart talk with her own mother makes Prudence see things from the other side. Meanwhile, recently remarried, 37-year old Chantel is ready to move to Mexico with her new husband, but decides to put her own life on hold when her teenage daughter Carolyn has a baby.

30 Something Grandma is executive produced by David Eilenberg, Simon Thomas, Brian Zagorski and Jennifer Duncan for ITV Entertainment. Mary Donahue and David Hillman executive produce for Lifetime. Three one-hour, closed-ended episodes have been ordered.

KNOCKED UP PREMIERES DECEMBER 6 AT 10PM ET/PT

Knocked Up chronicles the journeys of three women who are having the time of their lives as their careers are just about to take off. Living carefree and enjoying being single ladies, the lives of Akiitha, Katie and Audra are turned upside down when they discover they are pregnant after one night of fun. As they prepare for their special deliveries, they must all make major life decisions as they deal with their surprise pregnancies and get ready for life's greatest adventure, motherhood. Totally unprepared for babies at this time in their lives, all three need to re-think their living situations, relocate, cope with the father's involvement (or lack thereof), all the while dealing with their ever changing bodies and intense emotional ups-and-downs of being pregnant.

After 10 years of wild partying, 32 year-old Audra had cleaned up her act, finding sobriety and the church. But after a night spent with an old friend results in an unexpected pregnancy, her world is about to change again. Despite her mom's disapproval and the father's refusal to be involved, Audra decides to raise the baby on her own. Meanwhile, Katie, who has always had relationships with women, unexpectedly gets pregnant after a one-night stand with a man, only to then meet Angela, the woman of her dreams. Katie struggles to balance the challenges of a new relationship with first-time parenting. Knocked Up also features Akiitha, a social worker from New Orleans, Louisiana who made an instant connection while out on Bourbon Street, only later discovers there's a baby on the way.

Knocked Up is produced by 11th Street Productions (16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom OG, Teen Mom 2) with Morgan J. Freeman, Dia Sokol Savage and Larry Musnik serving as executive producers, along with Mary Donahue and Sarah Thompson of Lifetime. Elana Wertkin (Teen Mom 2, Alaskan Bush People) serves as co-executive producer. Three one-hour episodes have been ordered.

In partnership with Lifetime, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy provided consultation to the production of 30 Something Grandma and Knocked Up. The organization has been involved with both shows since their inception, and stands by these docuseries as valuable programming to shed light on these issues and the staggering statistics that impact our nation. Per the organizations' research, although the teen birth rate in the U.S. has declined dramatically - down more than 45% since 2007 and more than 60% since the early 1990s - the United States still has the highest rates of teen birth of any comparable nation. Additional sourced research reveals that nearly half of all pregnancies in the U.S are described by the women themselves as unplanned and more than half (58%) of unintended pregnancies end in a birth. Women who use contraception consistently and correctly account for only 5% of all unintended pregnancies. *
