OUR LITTLE FAMILY IS BACK IN A BIG WAY
The Hamills return to TLC on Tuesday, August 18th at 10/9c
(New York, NY) – OUR LITTLE FAMILY is back with an all new season of adorable Hamill family adventures on Tuesday, August 18th at 10/9c. Dan and Michelle Hamill, and their three children, Jack, and twins Cece and Cate all have Achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. Despite life’s obstacles, the family faces every challenge thrown their way together and always with a positive attitude. The first season of OUR LITTLE FAMILY attracted 1.7M P2+ viewers and was a top 5 cable program in its time period with women*.
In the first season of OUR LITTLE FAMILY, viewers got an inside look into the Hamill’s real life at home – potty training, starting kindergarten, joining extracurricular activities, sibling arguments – and witnessed Dan and Michelle’s commitment to making sure their kids feel confident in their own skin. The new season promises even more fun with trips and precious family time that showcases the development of Cece and Cate’s personalities and how Jack continues his role as the hilariously funny big brother. With summer break around the corner, keeping the kids occupied is a full-time job, but Dan and Michelle are up for the challenge.
This season, Cece and Cate enroll in dance class, but their individuality shines when they realize Cece is much more of a girlie girl than Cate. Dan also shares his love of golf with Jack, and together they prepare for an annual little people golf tournament. Season two is packed with celebrations, including Mother’s and Father’s Day, birthdays and family vacations, but amidst all of the parties, Michelle decides to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Together, she and Dan learn how to cook and be more active as a family, which means training for a 5K, strawberry picking and preparing for a Maryland crab festival. The action-packed summer is all about friends, family and celebrating each other in the Hamill household.
Also this season, the Hamills head to Roloff Farms for a special TLC crossover episode with LITTLE PEOPLE BIG WORLD. For a few fun-filled days, Jack, Cece and Cate get some quality time with the Roloff kids, and Dan and Michelle have a chance to chat with Matt and Amy about the struggles they have overcome raising their children.
OUR LITTLE FAMILY is produced by The Studio, formerly Discovery Studios, for TLC.
