'Extraordinary People': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about TLC's unusual show
The special will air three episodes and will follow the lives of three extraordinary people
TLC has always made sure to give voice to the overlooked, the underrepresented and the misunderstood. The network is yet again ready to bring some faces to the screen who have persevered despite great adversity. For July, TLC plans on celebrating these extraordinary people by allowing the world to be a part of their journey. The special will air three episodes and will follow the lives of three extraordinary people.
The show is set to premiere on July 9.
The show will follow the lives of three extraordinary people who will give viewers a glimpse into their everyday life. Despite their hardships, these extraordinary people have learned how to live through the uncertainties and make the most of what they have.
Jyoti is famous for being the world's smallest woman. Standing 24-inches tall and weighing just 12 pounds, Jyoti has managed to live her life to the fullest and with a big smile on her face. Jyoti is well known for her role in 'American Horror Story'. She is all set to come back to the US again with her parents and explore career opportunities while soaking in the American culture.
However, amid all this, she also has an important task and that is to meet a doctor to address a debilitating health issue she has endured for years - her two broken legs. Uncertain if she would need a surgery, Jyoti hopes whatever news it may be, it is a good one.
Carmen and Lupita
When conjoined twins Carmen and Lupita were born, their parents had to make a tough decision - surgically separate them even though only one of them might live or let them live their life as conjoined twins. While Carmen and Lupita have grown to live together, their independent and different personalities have sometimes become a struggle for them. The episode will revolve around them coming to terms with everyday life while learning to be independent as they prepare to head out for college away from home.
My Pregnant Husband
The third episode of the show will explore the lives of two couples as they try to expand their families. The twist in their life is that the transgender husband is carrying the child. With unpredictable hardships before them, these couples try their best to welcome a child into their lives.
Right from coming out to their neighbors who were unaware of the husband being transgender to almost getting arrested by police officers who mistook his pregnant belly for stolen goods, a lot has happened in their life and the show will display the hardships of their everyday life.
