The everyday challenges faced by four exceedingly tall women will provide the setting of an upcoming TLC docuseries.

Produced by Workaholic Productions, the five-part My Giant Life (pictured) will begin airing on the U.S. cable network on July 14 at 10 p.m. EST/9 p.m. CST.

All of the cast members are well over six-feet tall. The shortest woman featured in the show – Colleen, a 36-year-old former pro-Volleyball player – stands at six feet six inches tall and the tallest – Nancy Mulkey, a Texan high school basketball player – is six feet nine inches.

Cameras follow the women as they demonstrate how their height complicates mundane tasks such as loading the dishwasher, getting into a car and boarding an airplane, as well as other areas of their lives that are impacted.
