The Learning Channel (TLC) has picked up Meet the Putnams for a full season following a successful pilot that debuted earlier this year.

Meet the Putnams is a reality show that documents a multi-generational family -- that’s 25 people -- living under one roof in Caseville Township.

The family is made up of patriarch and matriach Bill and Barb, their four adult children and their spouses, and their children--Bill and Barb's grandchildren. That’s ten adults to look after 15 children.

They all live in a 6,000-square-foot home with views of Lake Huron. The adults work together managing a commercial real estate and demolition company, and share just about everything: a bank account and two bathrooms in the house. 

The reality show follows the family’s life as they consume copious amounts of food and even head to the grocery store in a bus.

The family told MLive the show will premiere sometime next fall.
