TLC is looking to get lucky with its first first-ever foray into the late-night talk show arena, with something that was on Freud's and most everybody's mind -- particularly on a Saturday night.
Starting on Jan. 10, All About Sex will unveil insightful, and relatable opinions and ideas about the act and all its accoutrements from four accomplished women - Margaret Cho, Heather McDonald, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry.
The weekly series aim is to undress the latest headlines, break down the “behind closed doors” conversations about sex and love, and connect with women via social media -- questions can be tweeted using the hashtag #AllAboutSexTLC -- to answer question and dispel misconceptions about what is most Americans' favorite pastime.
TLC has ordered six half-hour episodes from Relativity Television and Ellen Rakieten Entertainment.
Episdoes of docuseries Sex Sent Me To The ER will serve as foreplay, er lead-in, to All About Sex, which each week will feature rotating selection of segments, including observations on the week’s craziest sex-related news, open conversations about love and marriage, plus taking viewer calls and social media inquiries regarding their relationship challenges.
