Discovery Health is set to introduce the world to another set of amazing sextuplets.
In their three-part special Then Came 6, the network tells the story of the Harrises, an extraordinary family with a remarkable claim-to-fame-they have the only surviving set of African-American sextuplets.
In February 2008, Discovery Health first introduced viewers to the Harris family, showcasing the ups and downs of raising sextuplets — plus one. Now, this next installment of THEN CAME 6 provides a deeper look at the Harris’ daily life, following the family as the sextuplets grow, and as their list of extracurricular activities and social circle expands. Caring for six-year-old sextuplets and a pre-teen offers no rest for Diamond and Chris — day after day, their hectic schedule of planning family meals, carpooling, cleaning, checking homework and playing with the kids offers little, if any, downtime.
THEN CAME 6 also shows how this unique family navigates everyday issues that affect many families, including raising an autistic child. This hour-long special demonstrates how the Harris’ handle life’s challenges and changes with incredible poise and their signature sense of humor.
The sextuplets — four boys and two girls — arrived at 26 1/2 weeks gestation weighing between 1 pound, 3 ounces and 1 pound, 12 ounces on July 7th 2002.
Premiering Tuesday, August 5 at 9 PM ET/PT, Then Came 6 offers a glimpse into the chaos — and the fun! — that comes with raising seven children.
