Fun Freetime: Uptv

UP TV, the entertainment destination that showcases stories about modern American families and the relationships that define them, announced today that this Labor Day Weekend, the network is delivering a mother of a marathon celebrating all the heart and humor that comes with the lead-up and arrival of every little bundle of joy. The Labor Day Weekend Event will be filled with kid and baby-themed America’s Funniest Videos marathons, a Bringing Up Bates Baby Special and special airings of beloved movies Look Who’s Talking and Look Who’s Talking Too, leading into a new unscripted special Expecting (working title).

“I’m pregnant!”: Words that are often met with immense joy, but also are a complete game-changer. It’s a moment in time that more and more people are capturing on film. Expectant parents often go online to post, view and share every pregnancy milestone from positive test results, to the frantic drive to the hospital, to the main event itself. Expecting is the first show that asks couples to turn the lens on themselves, to give the audience a peek into one of life’s most exciting and personal journeys. No producers. No camera crews. With unprecedented intimacy, viewers witness the highs and lows culminating in one of life’s biggest moments. UP will premiere Expecting on Labor Day, Monday, September 4 at 9 p.m. ET.

“In Expecting, UP viewers will have a front row seat on the rollercoaster ride that is expecting a little one,” said Timothy Kuryak, senior vice president of production and development. “Whether you’re married or single, have kids or not, Expecting has many relatable moments about love, family and relationships. The dynamic between each couple is raw, unfiltered and truly authentic.”

In the special, viewers will follow the journeys of Kelsey and Corbin Scott of Portland, Oregon; Tia and Tre Patterson of Atlanta, Georgia; and Ashley and Thomas Hughes of Pleasant View, Utah.

Expecting is produced in partnership with Entertainment One (eOne). Executive Producers for eOne are Aynsley Vogel, Cal Shumiatcher and Jessica Mathies.
