If you saw the film or read the book, “The Blind Side,” you know about Leigh Anne Tuohy, who was portrayed by Sandra Bullock in the movie. Tuohy and her family are famous for having adopted Michael Oher, who is now a professional football player.

Today, Tuohy is embarking on a new reality TV series called “Family Addition,” in which she helps foster and adoptive families navigate through the system to, hopefully, make a child a permanent part of their lives. The series for the Uplifting Entertainment network (formerly GMC-TV) will premiere Friday, June 7, 2013 at 9 p.m. EDT.

“Miss Sue” Mitchell, who was played by Kathy Bates in “The Blind Side,” is also part of the show, as is Tuohy’s daughter, Collins Tuohy, who was portrayed by Lily Collins in “The Blind Side.”
