The woman dubbed Octomom is set to participate in a documentary on her children.
Wired PR News – The woman who gave birth to octuplets in January is set to participate in a documentary series on her family. As reported by Reuters, Nadya Suleman, has expressed plans to do a documentary that will follow her newborn octuplets for their first 18 years of life, allowing a film crew to record them six times a year.
Suleman’s octuplets are the second set in the United States to survive after birth. The 33 year-old mother of a total of 14 children is quoted in the report as stating to Life & Style Magazine about the filming plans, “It is official. I’m going to be doing a show, but it’s not a reality show.” What I’m doing with this TV show is basically creating documentaries about the lives of my children. It’s going to be an ongoing thing, and it will follow them from now until they are 18.”
Reinout Oerlemans, Chief Executive of Eyeworks, which will reportedly produce the documentary, is quoted as stating, “Nadya’s story is a very unique and exciting one that needs to be told in the right manner… We are confident that we are the right party to tell their story around the world.”
As noted in the Reuters report, Oerlemans also expressed in a statement that they were still in negotiations with Suleman for the project.
