No, this isn’t the reality show we’ve all been hearing about. Fox will be airing a two-hour documentary titled Octomom: The Incredible Unseen Footage on Wednesday, August 19th, which is completely unrelated to Nadya Suleman’s upcoming reality show. Keep reading for full details on the documentary that is sure to be packed full of drama…

The documentary was filmed over a seven month span, which started at the birth of Nadya’s octuplets. According to a reportfrom Access Hollywood theviewers will”witness the emotional struggles, physical complications and financial burdens of this single mother of 14 … including the private moments and reactions of Suleman’s family, as well as Suleman’s own feelings, doubts and fears.”

Fox executive, Mike Darnell, said “It’s emotional, it’s compelling, you’re watching her go from miracle birth woman to tabloid fodder. You don’t even need narration, it’s incredible footage. It’s a little bit of a trainwreck, and it’s really entertaining to watch.”

However, he added that he had no interest in doing an entire series with Nadya. “I would not have been interested in shooting a series with her, ever,” Darnell said. “But since this footage was already shot and she’s such a hot topic and it’s so compelling … We wouldn’t have done a TV series, but a two-hour documentary makes for good television.”
