Darlow Smithson Productions has been commissioned for two programs for TLC. DSP will produce a strand of six one-hour programs, in association with Barcroft Media, on people battling extremely rare medical conditions, while the other is My Kid Survived (w/t), a one-hour doc reliving the experiences of three children who miraculously survived perilous situations.

The double commission is a continuation of a relationship between TLC and the production company, with Plane Crash Survivors and Tsunami Caught on Camera as previous titles produced for the network.

Endemol Worldwide Distribution will be launching the six-part strand and My Kid Survived at MIPCOM.
