Duggar sisters star in 3 specials airing on TLC in December

NEW YORK (AP) — From the rubble of TLC's canceled "19 Kids and Counting" now rises "Jill and Jessa: Counting On."

The three specials will air Dec. 13, 20 and 27, the TLC network announced Friday.

These specials focus on Jill (Duggar) Dillard as she moves to Central America with her family for missionary work and Jessa (Duggar) Seewald starts a family of her own.

The sisters were two of the "19 Kids and Counting" on the TLC reality show that chronicled the home life of Arkansas parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. It was pulled from the network in May over revelations that Josh, oldest of the Duggar siblings, had molested four of his sisters and a baby sitter.

In August, he publicly apologized for a pornography addiction and cheating on his wife. Earlier this week, adult film actress Ashley Stamm-Northup, known as Danica Dillon, sued Josh Duggar, claiming the reality TV star assaulted her on two occasions when consensual sex turned rough.
