Brand-new series TOO LARGE introduces viewers to cases of dire obesity with oversized personalities to match. Seven desperate hopefuls each weighing between 400-lbs and 800-lbs seek the help of renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Charles Procter, as they attempt to lose weight and change their lives forever. Each episode will follow a new case, culminating in either the success or setback of their weight loss journey. TOO LARGE premieres each week beginning Wednesday, June 2 only on discovery+, the definitive non-fiction, real-life subscription streaming service.
In a special two-hour premiere episode, viewers will meet best friends Meghan and Vanessa. Despite their fun-loving energy and wit, both women are plagued by health problems. Weighing in at 496-lbs, Meghan is tired of living her life connected to an oxygen tank and wants to inspire Vanessa to join her in having bariatric surgery. However, at 440-lbs, Vanessa is not convinced looking at the intense diet and exercise changes they need to make in order to meet Dr. Procter’s weight loss requirements prior to the surgery. In the end, it will take more than a positive attitude and a sense of humor to push these women to save their own lives.
Get a more intimate look at the dramatic weight loss journeys featured on the discovery+ show from beginning to present day on the companion series TOO LARGE: WHERE ARE THEY NOW? beginning Wednesday, June 2. Each episode will share patients looking back on the decisive moments of their journeys and opening up about their lives after surgery.
