A Lake City family that includes 19 children and an Anderson County Commissioner will be featured in a TLC reality show that begins tonight at 9 p.m.
The show is called the “United Bates of America” and will feature Lake City’s Bates family, according to WYSH Radio in Clinton. The family’s oldest son, Zach Bates, is an Anderson County commissioner.
The show will follow the family and their children as they go through their daily lives. The idea for the Bates’ own reality show was born after they appeared on another reality show featuring the Duggar family of Arkansas, WYSH said.
