TLC, a Discovery Company, describes the show as follows:
Ethan and Casey Jones met in the seventh grade, married after college, and around their 10-year anniversary decided to give their six-year-old daughter Eliot a baby sister or brother. Instead, the couple welcomed quints: Brooklyn, Ryan, Jack, Britton, and Lila.
Watch the Joneses as they navigate the obstacles and the joys of raising a family when everything is multiplied by five. The family returns to TLC to reveal all-new experiences and adventures as their quintuplets enter their toddler years.
Five more babies leads to five times the expenses from cribs to diapers to play toys.
"It has been a wild, crazy, fun, super-sized kind of summer for our family with cameras in tow most every step of the way," Ethan said.
In the TLC premiere episode the family decides to downsize and put their Austin, Texas, home on the market and hold an open house.
This means a day out and playtime at the local pool for energetic Eliot and her 17-month-old quintuplet sisters and brother.
Never a dull moment, this family goes through all the trials and tribulations many other American families are facing just multiplied by six.
"I don’t know if I can say how many episodes are planned at the moment or how many have been filmed so I won’t say, but I will tell you that they don’t call it a series for nothing," Ethan said.
"It has been a great experience so far and we look forward to the rest of the shows airing," Casey said.
In the Family First episode the Jones family ventures on a sixteen-hour, cross-country trek to Iowa so that the Quints can meet their Great-Grandparents for the first time. Can a family of eight make the long journey on planes, trains and automobiles without a meltdown?
In the Flying Solo episode, Ethan's last requirement for his MBA is that he must take a ten day trip to East Asia. Casey is left home alone with all six children for the first time since the Quints were born.Chaos ensues as even the simplest tasks get out of control without dad to help.
"Hope you like the new shows," Ethan said.
