"(But) hiding us behind closed doors or in funny costumes will never give us the exposure needed to desensitize society to us." Fox said this week that it would air the show, essentially a dwarf version of ABC's "The Bachelor," as a two-part special next month on February 16 and February 23.
The announcement sparked a flurry of angry letters to the LPA from little people and their parents and a debate within the Portland, Oregon-based organization over its response to the show, Roloff said.
Over six months and for 10 hours per day, the series captured the family's everyday successes and struggles.

DESCRIPTION:(from TLC's press release, April 2017) TLC's family series LITTLE PEOPLE BIG WORLD premieres Tuesday, May 2nd at 9/8c and returns to find the Roloffs facing many changes.
With not only one, but two grandchildren on the way, future grandparents Amy and Matt must also navigate divorced life while living 500 feet from each other and running the family farm together.
"The fact that Fox is doing this reality show is outrageous," Roloff quoted one e-mail he received from the parent of a dwarf child.
"It is one more avenue to make fun of their stature." Roloff credited the producers of the show for consulting with his group in an apparent effort to develop and promote the show in a sensitive manner.

“There’s two ways to do the filming thing — one way is through the show, maybe and the other way is through myself and vlogs.
It’s just more free doing it myself, I can do anything, I can say anything, I can talk about anything — I can show whatever I want.” Isabel chimed in and said Jacob will be able to do all of that and not have to worry about his words or thoughts being misconstrued.
"Personally, I think that the (bachelor) guy might have the same tastes I have and prefer a little woman and reject the average-sized women," he said.
