Two months after the Discovery-owned cable channel canceled 19 Kids and Counting over Josh Duggar's sexual molestation admission, TLC has ordered several new specials centered on his two sisters Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard.
Production is slated to begin soon for a targeted year-end premiere for at least one of the specials, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The untitled specials will center on Dillard, her husband, Derick, and their infant son as they prepare to move to El Salvador for missionary work, and Seewald, who is expecting her first child with husband Ben on Nov. 1. Two or three specials are currently planned.
Grow up in front of the TV camera with virtually every part of your life broadcast into people's living rooms, while living under your father's strict religious rules, and being molested by your own brother. Gee who wouldn't want to give them their own show?
If there is still an audience for this then I think that says something really unfortunate about the state of our country.
Now if the two girls wanted to tell the truth about what went on behind the scenes during their carefully scripted reality show, and what their brother was really doing to them, THEN there might be something worth watching here.
