Summary: The Thompson family – the stars of TLC’s cancelled show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” are in L.A. for meetings with T.V. producers regarding a possible spin-off.
TMZ reported that Honey Boo Boo’s family is in L.A. this week meeting with producers who are interested in re-introducing the family to cable viewers as “Beverly Hillbillies”. Fans of the show may be seeing the family in a new house, with money and drivers, trying to adjust to being famous. TLC is in discussions with the family about going this route with the spin off of their wildly popular show ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ which was cancelled last October.
The problem is that the producers from TLC want to bring up Chickadee’s molestation by Mama June’s ex boyfriend Mark McDaniel and use the issue to inaugurate the show. The family reportedly wants to deal with the issue in private however. TMZ also reported that their sources say the producers are trying to work the angle of Mama June and Sugar Bear reuniting and co parenting for the show.
