TLC has given a series order to a new show focusing on polygamy. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable channel ordered “My Five Wives” after a broadcast of the pilot averaged 1.9 million total viewers in its September debut.
The network has ordered nine hourlong episodes of the show, which tracks Brady Williams and his five wives and 24 children, who live outside of Salt Lake City. Williams, who was raised Mormon, hadn’t heard of polygamy until his parents converted to the lifestyle, the story says.
The series will premiere March 9.
