LMN presents Escaping Polygamy, a new original documentary series that follows the work of three sisters who left the Kingston clan, a secretive polygamist group based in Salt Lake City, Utah known as the Order, as they help both loved ones and strangers break free of polygamy. The series follows three sisters – Andrea, Jessica and Shanell – who, over 10 years ago, bravely escaped polygamy. Now, their mission in life is to help other young men, women and children escape the abusive polygamous lifestyle into which they were born and raised, and manage their new lives on the outside.
"Escaping Polygamy" gives viewers unprecedented access into the realities of this frightening and mysterious American subculture," said Laura Fleury, Head of Programming and Development, LMN. "Through the eyes of Andrea, Jessica and Shanell and the range of people they help, we experience the dramatic, spiritual rollercoaster that they must go through to break free of polygamy." In each one-hour episode, the sisters work with people who are in various stages of leaving polygamy - from those who are just at the point of recognizing they have to get out, to those who are actively seeking to escape, to others who are struggling to adjust to the realities of the real world and the very powerful temptation of returning to the only lifestyle they know. Viewers will learn that physically leaving the polygamous order is only the beginning of their journey.
Stories of people who left the polygamous cult include one woman's surprising new attitude about the The Order; a man coping with a family tragedy; a story of how one woman's father treated FLDS women; and an angry confrontation involving a mother and her daughter.
A man and his family seek to escape an organization that all but forces its members into a life of polygamy, but an explosive secret about the man's dark past in the group places the entire team in danger.
A mother who escaped the infamous FLDS town of Colorado City, Ariz., reaches out for help to save the two daughters she left behind; the team learns of the eldest daughter's secret location.
Jessica and Kollene learn that Suzette's manipulative and potentially violent sister-wife guards Rosie's every move; Jessica takes a public and political stance against polygamy in a controversial hearing before the Utah legislature.
Raymond Jeffs, the son of notorious FLDS Church leader Warren Jeffs, pleads for help in getting his brother out of the group; tensions flare when the team's plan to spring the prophet's son gets exposed.
