The show will document their life-changing experience, recording intimate moments where they tackle, head-on, the controversy that surrounds teen pregnancy.

According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, more than 700,000 teenage girls in the U.S. become pregnant each year, and for the first time in 15 years, teen births are on the rise.
