TLC ORDERS UP MORE PINT-SIZED COMPETITORS
(Los Angeles, CA) - TLC has renewed its hit series TODDLERS & TIARAS for a sixth season and ordered an additional eight, one-hour episodes of CHEER PERFECTION, with both series slated to return summer 2013.
Season six of TODDLERS & TIARAS will include 13 one-hour episodes that continue to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the competitive lifestyles of these pint-sized beauty queens. The series that spawned Honey Boo Boo, will showcase all-new families vying for the coveted crown.
TLC has ordered eight additional episodes of CHEER PERFECTION that continue to explore the ultra-competitive cheerleading lifestyle where the parents often battle each other more than the emerging athletes themselves. The series captures the talent, drama, and rivalries that emerge as the young competitors – and their moms – do everything it takes to reach cheer perfection.
Both series are produced by Authentic Entertainment, who also produce the hit spin-off series HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. TODDLERS & TIARAS and CHEER PERFECTION finales air back-to-back tonight beginning at 9/8c.
