TLC Renews ‘Too Close to Home’ for Season Two

New Episodes to Premiere in 2017

TLC has ordered a second season of its first scripted series, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home.” Debuting on August 22, the series follows a young woman, Anna, from a working class life who, after having an affair with the President of the United States, becomes the center of a political scandal. When the scandal erupts, she returns to her old life.

“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.

The logline in season two: Anna (Danielle 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).
