TLC is gearing up to take viewers down the country roads of Arizona with the Webnar family in upcoming show 'Little Life on the Prairie' set to premiere on August 20.
Welcome to the farm life!
TLC is gearing up to take viewers down the serene country roads of Arizona with their very own Webnar family in the upcoming show 'Little Life on the Prairie'. Set to premiere on Monday, August 20 at 10 pm EST, the six-episode reality show will follow Lauren, Nate, and four-year-old Juniper Webnar - as they say goodbye to big-city living in California and embrace a more stress-free farm life in the countryside of Arizona. The journey gets especially emotional as the Webnars, born with achondroplasia dwarfism, try to run the farm, adjust to country life and expand their family despite major health risks and medical challenges during the course of the series.
"Lauren and I took out our whole life's savings and packed up our lives in the big city to move to the country so we can start a farm of our own," says Nate, who was raised on a hobby farm in rural Wisconsin, in the first-look trailer released by TLC.
As the scene shifts from the glitzy city to the countryside, a glimpse of the myriad changes that is in store for this little family is offered in the video. While Nate seems to have a natural leaning for the farm-style living, his wife clearly is a quintessential city girl with zero farm experience - as reflected in her moments of struggle as she picks up the basics of running a farm.
"Starting a farm is going to be a little bit of a challenge," continues Nate, as Lauren pipes in, "It's almost started to seem like Nate is having little doubts whether this was the right decision." The challenges for this family appears to be even more heightened by their health issues and bitter past experiences involving bullying related to their dwarfism. Despite all this, if there is one thing that the Webnars are sure of, it is their desire to grow their family even after the past heartbreaks with pregnancy.
"Nate and I have decided to do IVF with genetic testing so that we're guaranteed a healthy baby," Lauren explains in the video. "We pretty much sunk the majority of our lives' savings into this process," Nate adds. "To have this not work would be crushing to us."
The Webnar story is sure to woo TLC's loyal followers, as Howard Lee, President and General Manager of the network adds while welcoming the family: "Fitting in perfectly with our network’s mission to celebrate families from all walks of life, TLC is proud to share this emotional journey. 'Little Life on the Prairie' follows a period of major transition for the endearing Webnar family, including extreme highs, lows and relatable moments that our viewers love to connect with most.”
