Downsized premiered on WE on November 6, 2010. The Bruce's are today's Brady Bunch, though this nine-member family is trying to survive difficult economic times. Laura had five kids, Todd had two. A few years after a blind date, they married and things were great until, just like a million other American families, the recession hit and the bottom dropped out of their lives. As they face the reality of having both of their homes in foreclosure, Downsized follows the family as they are forced to make radical lifestyle changes and begin living by extremely limited means, including making clothes and growing food themselves. Downsized captures this family navigating these changes with innovation and determination, challenging even their own notions of what they could never do, together.
