New York, NY – TLC started production on an eight-episode series, MISS POOH TO THE RESCUE (Working Title), following one of last year’s biggest social media stars. Veronica “Pooh” Nash-Poleate, with more than 20 million views on her “Don’t Go in the Shark’s House” clip, has solidified her place in viral video history. A school guidance counselor with degrees in psychology and education, Pooh relishes the online interaction with her “congregation,” but she’s decided it is time to go offline and meet her followers in person. In this new series, TLC follows her common sense crusade while she spreads her Pooh-losophy mission. Armed with her experience as a counselor and mother, and her sassy sense of humor, she’ll start doing house calls – giving advice and spreading love every step of the way. The series is slated to premiere in November 2016.
The bonafide internet sensation is also joining TLC’s multi-platform destination, TLCme, as its newest vlogger. Fans are invited to enjoy her unique take on the latest trending topics as well as her honest and hilarious reviews of popular TLC shows.
“TLC has truly evolved into a multi-platform brand with TLCme as the destination for our audience year-round,” said Scott Lewers, SVP Multi-Platform Programming & Digital Media. “We are excited to introduce Pooh on TLCme months before the show premieres on linear which allows us to add another dimension and drive awareness for the new series and for her as a talent.”
MISS POOH TO THE RESCUE (WT) is produced by Maverick TV and All3 Media America for TLC.
