Escaping Polygamy

LMN presents "Escaping Polygamy", a new original documentary series that follows the work of three sisters who left the Kingston clan, a secretive polygamist group based in Salt Lake City, Utah known as the Order, as they help both loved ones and strangers break free of polygamy. The series follows three sisters – Andrea, Jessica and Shanell – who, over 10 years ago, bravely escaped polygamy. Now, their mission in life is to help other young men, women and children escape the abusive polygamous lifestyle into which they were born and raised, and manage their new lives on the outside.

"Escaping Polygamy" gives viewers unprecedented access into the realities of this frightening and mysterious American subculture," said Laura Fleury, Head of Programming and Development, LMN. "Through the eyes of Andrea, Jessica and Shanell and the range of people they help, we experience the dramatic, spiritual rollercoaster that they must go through to break free of polygamy." In each one-hour episode, the sisters work with people who are in various stages of leaving polygamy - from those who are just at the point of recognizing they have to get out, to those who are actively seeking to escape, to others who are struggling to adjust to the realities of the real world and the very powerful temptation of returning to the only lifestyle they know. Viewers will learn that physically leaving the polygamous order is only the beginning of their journey.
