Series will track the “super-obese” as they shed pounds and regain control over their lives
Things are about to get heavy over at ABC.
The network said on Monday that its "Extreme Makeover" spinoff, "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," will premiere on May 30 at 10:01 p.m. ET/PT.
ABC said the show will document the efforts of eight "super obese" people to safely lose half of their body weight during the course of a year.
Trainer and "transformation specialist" Chris Powell guided the weight-shedding process, which will be unveiled in eight one-hour episodes.
"Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" is executive-produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson and Matt Assmus, and produced by 3 Ball Productions/Eyeworks USA.
