– TLC, the cable network known for its reality shows featuring large broods, has decided not to pursue a program featuring Nadya Suleman, the mother of 14 who recently gave birth to octuplets.
“TLC is not pursuing any program at this time with Nadya Suleman,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill told Us magazine Wednesday. “We wish the family well.”
The family-friendly channel had recently expressed interest in basing a show around the mother of multiples, who sparked controversy with her decision to be artificially inseminated with her eight latest children despite collecting government assistance and having six older children to raise.
TLC currently features two other programs centered on large families: “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” which follows a couple raising one set of twins and one set of sextuplets, and “18 Kids and Counting,” which follows an evangelical mother, who has so far given birth to 18 children, and her husband.
