Is The Little Couple over? Deadline reports the TLC series’ production company, LMNO, is now locked in litigation with parent network Discovery.
The reality series follows the family of Bill Klein and Jennifer Arnold, a couple who both have skeletal dysplasia. The show began in 2009 and has already aired eight seasons.
Yesterday, LMNO filed a suit against Discovery for breach of contract and copyright infringement, “accusing the giant media company of conspiring with a “criminal extortionist” to squeeze LMNO out of six of its shows, including TLC hit The Little Couple.”
According to the production company, Discovery allegedly took advantage of LMNO’s troubled financial situation in order to take control of shows like The Little Couple. As of now, Discovery has sent LMNO termination notices for several shows, including The Little Couple, 7 Little Johnstons, Killer Confessions, Hollywood & Crime, The Coroner: I Speak for the Dead, and Unusual Suspects.
Whether or not this means The Little Couple is cancelled remains to be decided.
