A&E will showcase the unfamiliar world of adult adoption in the new docuseries Adults Adopting Adults, which premieres January 31.

The 10-episode series follows six stories of adults seeking legal adoption for a sincere desire for a true family experience or, in some cases, possibly more questionable motives.

While adoption laws in the U.S. vary from state to state with various legitimate reasons for the practice, some situations are on the strange side. The series features incredible stories ranging from a woman who wants to leave her mother behind to be adopted by another couple she found online to a German prince looking for an adult son to care for him and carry on his title.

Adults Adopting Adults is produced by Glass Entertainment Group for A&E. Nancy Glass, Matt Carter, Rene Rainey, Gino Trosa and Tony Biancosino are executive producers for Glass Entertainment Group, with Danny Passman serving as executive producer for Crybaby Media. Elaine Frontain Bryant, Shelly Tatro, Jonathan Partridge and Marcie Hume are executive producers for A&E. A&E retains worldwide distribution rights to the show.
