The Little People Are Back!

Meet the Roloffs, the most intriguing family on television. Little People, Big World documents the life of this extraordinary family composed of both little and average-sized people. For ten hours per day over six months, TLC intimately captures their successes and struggles.

Parents, Matt and Amy Roloff, both 4 feet tall, are determined to succeed in a world that isn’t always accepting. Matt has been extremely successful in business, closing deals with some of Silicon Valley’s best companies. After being laid off, Matt decided to pursue his dream of owning his own business.

Amy, originally a stay-at-home mom is now holding down two jobs. She has raised four children: 15-year-old twins, Jeremy and Zach, 12-year-old Molly and 8-year-old Jacob. Together they own and operate Roloff Farms, a beautiful 34-acre farm in Oregon.

The interaction between the kids is fascinating. One of the twins Zach is a little person and Jeremy is average height. Zach is shy and Jeremy is outgoing. Zach struggles with this every day. You remember how hard it was to be a 12-year-old, can you imagine how hard that age would be if you were little?

Little People, Big World lets viewers experience the bittersweet lives of the Roloffs as they face the pressure of being little in an average-sized world. This is a show that isn't just fun to watch, it's actually emotionally hard-hitting, and displays intense examples of human prejudice. Watching the Roloffs and people's reactions to them, will show you some of the most shocking things on television today.

Tune in to TLC Mondays at 8/7c to see our favorite little family.
