‘Who Do You Think You Are’ Heads to TLC

Family lineage show found its roots on NBC before heading to cable

After being cancelled by NBC a year ago, “Who Do You Think You Are” is finding life again on TLC.

The cabler has ordered eight hourlong episodes of the family history reality skein and will begin bowing the segs on July 23. Fresh run on cable will include celebs like Christina Applegate, Cindy Crawford, Zooey Dechanel and Chris O’Donnell delving into their lineage with the help of ancestry and history experts.

Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky direct and exec produce the series.

“I’ve never stopped hearing about how much people love ‘Who Do You Think You Are?,’ and I’ve always known that we’ve had more great stories to share,” said Kudrow.

Bucatinsky added: “TLC is a great home for the series, and we join our excited celebrity participants as we unearth some amazing background and surprising histories.”

Ancestry.com will continue to sponsor the series as it did when the unscripted program was seated on NBC.

“Who Do You Think You Are?” is produced by Shed Media US and Is or Isn’t Entertainment.
