Tyler Perry's 'Too Close To Home' was TLC's first ever scripted series.
Season 1 featured an 8-part drama, telling the story of a young woman from a modest upbringing who discovers she may have a bright future in Washington D.C.'s fast-paced political scene. When Anna (Danielle Savre) leaves her trailer park home in Alabama in a cloud of dust, she cuts all ties with her family and buries every element of her checkered past. Her friends in Washington think she comes from a wealthy family and know nothing of her real upbringing. Suddenly, the real Anna is exposed when she causes a major political scandal and makes national headlines for her part in an affair with one of the nation's most powerful players. With nowhere to turn, she's forced to find sanctuary in the only place she has left - home.
In the October 2016 finale of Too Close To Home viewers saw Anna right back in the small town she abandoned for a “better” life and seeking sanctuary with the family she’d turned her back on years prior. Yet trouble seems to find her wherever she goes -- even in Happy, Alabama. Even her solid relationship with her sister Bonnie (Kelly Sullivan) is threatened by her poor decisions. As the ongoing drama continues to unfold in Too Close To Home, it’s clear that Anna’s shattered life in Washington is not behind her and hiding is hard to do when the most powerful people in the nation want to find you. Dax (Nick Ballard) and Victor (Charles Justo) become entrenched in a scandal of their own and it is possible that Dax’s loyalties aren’t with Victor or Anna, but with someone truly sinister. The plot grows thicker when Too Close To Home dives into another family’s dirty deeds in Happy and an ugly love triangle threatens to be revealed. Meanwhile, Rebel (Annie Thrash) is getting into dangerously hot water when an all-too familiar face to Anna, Bonnie, and Shelby (Brooke Anne Smith) returns to the town and has his sights set on Rebel.
