Cable network orders new reality series
TLC is big on “Little People.”The lifestyle cabler has ordered a still-untitled series based on its recent hit special “Little People: Just Married.” LMNO Prods. is behind the show, which just secured a 13-episode order from TLC. New show — which comes as the cabler continues to score strong numbers from the unrelated series “Little People, Big World” — revolves around newlyweds Bill Klein and Jen Arnold, a pharmaceutical salesman and pediatrician, respectively. TLC plans to launch the series May 25 at 10 p.m., behind the season premiere of smash franchise “Jon and Kate Plus 8.” The untitled series is one of three pilots LMNO recently produced for TLC; the company is also awaiting word on its projects “Amazing Love Stories” and “Incredible Weddings.” TLC topper Eileen O’Neill said the Klein/Arnold series fits right into the channel’s lifestyle brand. “We are certainly looking to fulfill on our brand of interesting characters in extraordinary situations,” she said.
