TLC puts the spotlight on four stories of people in extraordinary situations with the announcement of four new documentaries coming to the channel. Darlow Smithson Productions’ My 40 Year-Old Child focuses on a mysterious condition affecting both a 40 year-old man with the body of a 10 year-old and a six year-old girl who is no different physically than a newborn, and airs on January 23. Also airing on the 23rd is Extreme Births, from Pioneer TV. Premiering at 10/9c, the one-hour doc looks at four pregnancies that faced extremely dangerous obstacles. On February 20, TLC will premiere DSP’s 600 Pound Mom, which follows Dominique, who must lose 112 lbs in order to get weight-loss surgery. Lastly, Morningstar Entertainment’s The Man Who Lost His Face, also premiering on February 20, focuses on the quest to remove a massive facial tumor.
