'Doubling Down With The Derricos': Trailer Drops For TLC Series Chronicling 16-Person Family

TLC has announced their latest series, Doubling Down with the Derricos, which is set to premiere on August 11.

The official description: Sleepless nights, sibling squabbles and a living room full of toe-tripping toys is the norm for any family with kids. Magnify that by 11 with triplets on the way and you have the Derricos, who celebrate life and embrace its hurdles and drama with open arms every day. The new kids on the block in TLC’s popular family neighborhood, Karen and Deon Derrico always wanted a large family but never in their wildest dreams expected to be quite so blessed (though multiples are prevalent on both sides of their family)! Karen and Deon use open and honest dialogue when parenting their kids with a modern take and give viewers an unfiltered look into their bustling, sweet and growing family in a series that is all heart.

“TLC has always been the home for extraordinary families, and with multiple multiples the Derricos take ‘extraordinary’ to a whole new level!” said TLC President and General Manager Howard Lee. “They bring a fresh voice, perspective and willingness to share their culture and values. And while their size may be unique, their story is universally relatable -- devoted parents trying to raise their children the best way they know how all while navigating life’s ups and downs. We are proud and excited to introduce TLC viewers to the Derricos.”

According to TLC, in the series' premiere season, "Karen is pregnant with triplets, and it hasn’t been an easy time for her or Deon. At 24 weeks, Karen’s doctor advises she spend the remainder of her pregnancy in the hospital, which means Deon will have to manage the household with 11 children – all on his own. Nothing goes according to plan, and the Derricos are faced with surprise after surprise as they welcome three newborns while working hard to give their other 11 children ranging from 2-14 years old, all the love and attention they need."

The series will be accompanied by the TLCGo series, The Derrico Family: Inside the Episode and The Derrico Family: Meet the Kids on Facebook.
