TLC Gets Another Reality Series

TLC has ordered up six episodes of a new reality series, this time following a family of obese people going through their every day lives. 

The half-hour docu series, tentatively titled "One Big Happy Family," hails from RDF USA, whose senior vp development and current Mike Duffy created the show. He drew on his own experience. Duffy's inspiration is his father who, at age 60, lost 200 pounds.

"That changed the entire dynamic of my family," he said. Obesity is always is a family issue, but "watching television, it occurred to me that there is a void for programming where we deal with obesity in the family unit," he added.
