TLC won't miss one of the shocking news in the criminal world this year by compiling footages for a special called "Kidnapped for 18 Years: The Jaycee Lee Dugard Story". This Sunday, November 8 at 9 P.M. the cable will air a story about the California woman who was kidnapped when she was 11 years old and held captive for 18 years before being discovered.

From the look of the preview, the special contains some personal footages of the Dugard family including when the parents were on national search following the abduction. "This is a look beyond the headlines, this is their story," the network says on the promo. The one-hour program would be aired again on Monday, November 9 at 12 A.M.

Jaycee Lee Dugard was taken by strangers into their car in June 1991 while waiting for her school bus. When hope was seemingly gone, she was found in August this year being kept in a backyard barn with her two children by her kidnapper Phillip Craig Garrido.

Apart from arranging specials for its daily schedule, TLC is also brewing new shows which include wedding-themed programs. The network has just picked up "Battle of the Wedding Planners", "Happily Ever Faster", "Four Weddings" and "Manhattan Marriage Project". The first two will debut in November and the other two premiere in December.

Money can't solve the horrible things he did to her. What kind of person are you?

Amazing story - to bad that the same shots were used over and over again - narration could have been written better - the storyline lost me at one point.

The family wouldnt have allowed them to air the show without there permission, Jaycee from articles is thankful for all the support of our nation, and wants everyone to know that she is okay.

If anything TLC is helping to show the world what kind of sick people are out there, what harm is it doing to the family, exploitation was already taking place with the magazines, and news , Its not doing any harm to the family, or victims, their home safe, their story is being told to educate others, if they didnt want it to be told, they wouldnt of told anyone anything.

TLC is pathetic and doesn't care about Jaycee Dugard and her family. Money is royalty and the only thing that matters. The kids on that netork will suffer for it.

I hope the family (victims) receive money for this. If not, that's just wrong.
