TLC orders ‘Little People’ specials

Reality show was cancelled in 2010

TLC has ordered four “Little People Big World” specials for 2011, with production under way.

The unscripted show was canceled in 2010 after six seasons, but the net said the specials will resolve viewer questions about the welfare of the Roloff family. The first special is tentatively set to air this October.

“Big World” stars husband and wife Matt and Amy Roloff — both little people — and their children Molly, Jacob, and twins Jeremy and Zachary. All are of average height, except Zachary, who suffers from achondroplasia, as does his mother.

“These specials are a great opportunity to update the TLC audience on their latest developments,” said g.m. Amy Winter. “Matt and Amy will always be part of our network’s family and we know their fans will be excited to reconnect.”
