THE BROWNS BOND OVER FAMILY BUSINESS AMIDST FAMILY DRAMA
In season five of TLC’s Sister Wives, premiering Sunday, June 8th at 9/8c
[Los Angeles, CA]-- Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine, Robyn, and the rest of the Brown clan are back to the busy grind in an all new season of TLC’s hit family series, Sister Wives, premiering Sunday, June 8th at 9/8c. Last season, we left off with the Brown family hosting a Commitment Celebration to celebrate the family being back together again, where they shared a family mission statement declaring the ideals they are working towards. Unfortunately, the harmony instilled by the reception is already gone as the Browns face one of the most chaotic weeks since the panicked move from Utah.
This season, tensions are high as the family tries to lock in investors for their fledgling jewelry business. With 4 mortgages and 3 kids already in college (with more following fast), pressure to make money is at an all-time high. Robyn is so overwhelmed with the workload, she gives Kody an ultimatum. While the family stresses over business plans and pitch meetings, Janelle faces a crisis of faith in her ability to keep losing weight. Later in the season, we catch up with the Brown kids in college and Meri's plans for the future may just surprise everyone.
Last season of Sister Wives averaged 2.0M P2+ viewers and ranked #3 among all ad-supported cable in its Sunday time period in delivery among W25-54/18-49.
SISTER WIVES is produced by Figure 8 Films in association with Puddle Monkey Productions for TLC.
