The story of Anna, a young woman who comes face-to-face with her checkered past after an alleged affair with the president, captured viewers and the drama of her return home has helped broaden TLC’s audience and brought in new viewers.

“Our audience was ready for a move into the scripted space, and the show has whet their appetite to see more. More twists, more heartbreak and certainly more of Tyler Perry’s notoriously dramatic writing,” said Nancy Daniels, President and General Manager, TLC.

Tyler Perry’s “Too Close to Home” reached 4.2 million viewers in its premiere and propelled TLC to its highest-rated Monday in more than a year in all key women demos. On Twitter, the #TooCloseToHome trended in the U.S. during its east coast premiere.

Coming up this season, Anna (Danielle Savre) faces the past that she so eagerly left behind, Anna reunites with her controlling mother, Jolene (Trisha Stahl); her sweet yet overburdened sister, Bonnie (Kelly Sullivan); and her drug-addicted sister, Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith). She also has to confront unfinished business with her high school sweetheart, Brody (Brock O’Hurn).
