If you thought you knew what the phrase “Like Mother, Like Daughter” meant, just wait until TLC’s new family series sMOTHERED makes its premiere Sunday, June 9!

The series follows four outrageous, mother/daughter duos who take their bonds to the extreme. These women are a constant presence in each other’s lives, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They do everything together — from dressing in matching outfits, to getting plastic surgery and injections, to sharing the same bath water and even sleeping in the same bed!

Every mother/daughter pair prioritizes their unique relationship above all else, often causing rifts between their siblings and significant others.

But the ladies' lives begin to change as they experience various life events, like boyfriends, pregnancy and moving out on their own, and maintaining the same level of closeness may prove impossible.

Faced with the reality that their tighter-than-tight relationships could be pulled apart at the seams, the mother-daughter pairs are determined to find a way to remain attached at the hip.

Their relationship is put to the ultimate test when Cher admits that she has been keeping a huge secret from her mom, forcing Dawn to reevaluate her place in her daughter’s life.
