New Episodes of ESCAPING POLYGAMY to Premiere on Lifetime April 1
Escaping Polygamy debuts four all-new episodes beginning April 1 at 10 PM ET/PT on Lifetime. Following three sisters, Andrea, Jessica and Shanell, who daringly escaped polygamy in their youth, and newcomer Rachel Jeffs, daughter of notorious Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) leader and prophet, Warren Jeffs, they band together to help young women escape the tight grips of Warren's cult.
The sisters' first-hand knowledge of the struggle to leave polygamy make them the perfect advocates to help others escape, but their missions are often riddled with danger by those faithful to the religion. Those who dare to leave, face challenging emotional obstacles like returning back to the cult they escaped. But with the continued support and guidance of the sisters, those that escape are able to rebuild their lives to create a new sense of family.
Featured in these new episodes include a member attempting to find her long-lost mother that the church tore away from her as a child; a sister desperately wanting freedom and the ability to finally make decisions for herself; and a young woman trapped inside a "house of repentance" following an illicit and forbidden affair between cousins.
Escaping Polygamy is produced by RIVR Media. Executive producers for RIVR Media are Dee Haslam, Rob Lundgren, and Lori Stryer. Shura Davison, Brie Miranda Bryant and Gena McCarthy serves as executive producers for Lifetime.
