TV show description:
This reality program seeks to reunite lost loved ones via emotional journeys that are all captured for the camera.
Each episode is self-contained and starts by establishing the emotional back stories of one or two different families who are in search of lost relatives. With limited information, a research team undertakes the difficult task of sifting through archives and tracking down records, looking for missing links.
Once they have uncovered the connections they’re looking for, host Lisa Joyner contacts the newly-found family member to let them know that their biological family has sought them out. Tim Green narrates each story as it unfolds and meets with the people who originated the search. The in-person reunions will take place at the “Family Tree.”
A follow-up with each family concludes each episode.
ABC only aired the first five episodes and cancelled the series.
