The premiere of TLC’s first scripted series raked in a whopping 4.2 million viewers. The renewal was pretty much a no-brainer.
“Too Close to Home” centers on the story of Anna (Danielle Savre), a young woman who comes face-to-face with her checkered past after an alleged affair with the president.
“Our audience was ready for a move into the scripted space, and Too Close To Home has whet their appetite to see more. More twists, more heartbreak and certainly more of Tyler Perry’s notoriously dramatic writing,” said Nancy Daniels, President and General Manager, TLC.
Coming up this season, Anna (Savre) must face the past that she so eagerly left behind, and her new reality may prove too much for her to handle. Back in Happy, Alabama, Anna reunites with her controlling mother, Jolene (Trisha Stahl); her sweet yet overburdened sister, Bonnie (Kelly Sullivan); and her drug-addicted sister, Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith). Although she’s left behind a mess in D.C., there are serious problems brewing in Happy, and Anna is quickly thrown into the drama. She also has to confront unfinished business with her high school sweetheart, Brody (Brock O’Hurn). Broken and battered, Anna must ultimately seek help and forgiveness from the same people she abandoned for a “better” life.
Congratulations to Tyler Perry, the cast and crew!
