Ad guy 2: Uh.

Bigamy is a felony in Utah and Sister Wives is a show about bigamy. That makes Sister Wives a show about a felony — and the authorities are not pleased.
The gang of 13 (including a foursome of wives) are under investigation by the Lehi, Utah police for their untraditional familial ways.

Brother Husband Kody Brown told PopEater: “We are disappointed in the announcement of an investigation, but when we decided to do this show, we knew there would be risks. But for the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking.” More

Coming this fall to TLC: Sister Wives. (She’s my wife… she’s my sister… wait, no, that’s not what this show’s about at all.) In this doc version of Big Love, a polygamous Mormon family comprised of a husband, three wives and 13 kids (one of them named Truely) promises to be the strangest reality clan we’ve seen in a while. The seven-part series deals with the family’s decision to add a fourth wife to the equation, plus who knows how many more kids. More
