NEW YORK - November 29, 2018 -Love comes in all shapes and sizes... even if that means falling in love with inanimate objects! WE tv's newest docuseries, "EXTREME LOVE," takes an intimate look at incredible and unusual real-life relationships. Premiering Friday, December 28 at 10PM ET/PT, the eight hour-long episodes prove that there truly is someone for everyone!
"EXTREME LOVE" is based on a hugely popular digital series of the same name, averaging an impressive 600 million views on digital platforms. This series includes weird and wild tales of odd and unexpected relationships around the globe. Real-life polyamorous vampires, adult babies, swingers, feeders, sex robots, sister wives, love slaves, and shocking age differences. These are love stories with an outrageous twist!
"No offense to Tom Jones, but sometimes love CAN be on the more unusual side," said Marc Juris, president of WE tv. "We're extremely thrilled to tell these very real and compelling stories of fascinating people who break with convention to stretch the typical definitions of love and relationships."
Meet the couples from the premiere episode:
Kyle & Marg, Pittsburgh, PA. Everyone has a type, and grandmas just happen to be Kyle's. Although he is deeply in love with Marg, his 91-year-old girlfriend, Kyle, 31, is not a one-woman-man. Enter the competition: Annie, a 68-year-old side piece. As long as Kyle is around, no one's nana is safe. What will happen when he introduces his 91-year-old girlfriend to his mom?
Monica & Sid, Fort Worth, TX. Sid will stop at nothing to support his 700lb girlfriend, Monica, and help her gain weight. Her goal is to become immobile and to become the fattest woman in the world. With Monica eating between 6,000 - 8,000 calories a day, Sid gets a real thrill out of helping Monica maintain her calorie count. But everything changes when she gets pregnant.
Dave & Shawna, Nova Scotia, Canada. While Shawna has her own obsession with dogs, her fiancé Dave has his own unconventional obsession - sex dolls. While Shawna's family reluctantly accepts his fetish, will they be as accepting when Shawna decides to get her own male sex doll to join the party?
Executive Producers for "Extreme Love" are Lauren P. Gellert, David Stefanou, Lauren Lazin, and Nicole Vogel for WE tv, with Sam Barcroft and Laura Capaldi for Barcroft Media, and Paul Heaney and Hannah Demidowicz for TCB Media Rights.
