Before the actual two-hour special hit the TV screen next week, FOX has given two previews of "Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage". One clip showed an interview with Nadya Suleman on what prompted her to keep all the 8 embryos in the first place. "I screwed myself," she admitted. The other footage captured Suleman in a chaotic situation of feeding her crying babies.
FOX bought the rights to broadcast the footage complied by RadarOnline.com from Pilgrim Films and Television. It includes the time she brought home the first two babies in March and what happened in the few months after that. "The access they got is amazing," said Mike Darnell, FOX's head of alternative programming. "They basically lived with her for seven months."
Apart from the eight babies, Suleman also gave birth to six older kids. She was hit with criticism of child exploitation including the time when she decided to go for public appearances to cash in on the fame. Darnell said that the deal for "Unseen Footage" is to be viewed as a way for Suleman to earn money that will benefit her children.
To be premiered on August 19, the TV special will have no host or narration but "inner monologue" in Suleman's head.
