Press Release

{Atlanta, Georgia}TLC premieres brand-new series FAMILY BY THE TON, following the weight loss journeys of three cousins, Naomi, Drew and Chitoka, who weigh a combined amount of almost 2,000-lbs. Along with the guidance of Dr. Charles Procter Jr., this fun-loving, yet desperate family, must overcome their anxieties and inspire each other to change.

The six one-hour episodes begin with Beverly, Naomi’s mother, who undergoes weight loss surgery in a last attempt to turn things around and hopefully inspire her daughter, niece and nephew to follow in her footsteps. In helping her mother recover from her weight loss surgery, Naomi sees firsthand the frightening complications involved in recovery, but is motivated by her dream to start a family. Meanwhile, Cousin Drew must overcome his denial of how addictive his eating habits have become before he even begins to consider moving forward with surgery.

Finally, cousin Chitoka has been bed-bound for over three years due to her morbid obesity and must literally take her first steps in the right direction in order to qualify for surgery. As viewers are invited into this dramatic family affair, will Naomi, Drew and Chitoka be able to encourage each other’s progress or continue enabling each other’s deadly habits? Join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #FamilyByTheTon. FAMILY BY THE TON is produced by Crazy Legs Productions for TLC.
