UPDATE (June 15, 2018): YouTube-famous dermatologist Sandra Lee's TV series has an official premiere date, and you've got a little less than a month to brace yourself for what TLC is calling an "oozingly addictive" show. Originally believed to be called This Is Zit, the same name as the one-hour special that aired earlier this year, the series will be aptly be called Dr. Pimple Popper and the first of six one-hour shows will air July 11.
"Dr. Pimple Popper provides a complete window into my world as a busy dermatologist," Lee says in a statement from TLC. "The TLC viewer goes on a journey with my patients during this series; first you meet the patients in their hometown, and see how their skin condition affects their life and the people around them. You understand how devastating their condition really is, how it affects their everyday life, and how they interact with others and the world. I evaluate every patient and decide on a treatment course to help their skin conditions — and afterward, we see how we have really transformed their lives!" According to the statement, some of the issues the series will touch on include elephant-like skin condition that limits a patient's mobility, protruding veins, and noticeable tumors and cysts.
If you can't wait for the series to start, you can catch up on the This Is Zit special in the meantime by downloading and watching it on the TLC Go app or visiting tlc.com/drpimplepopper.
Watching dermatologist Sandra Lee, better known as Dr. Pimple Popper, drain cysts and extract blackheads is weirdly relaxing for some people. In fact, Dr. Pimple Popper's YouTube channel has 3.4 million subscribers, and the demand for good popping content (sorry) is so strong that, earlier this year, TLC premiered a one-hour special all about the good doctor in high definition. This Is Zit premiered on January 3 in the United States and the United Kingdom, and clearly resonated with audiences, because the network just announced a full pimple-popping series will arrive on your TV this summer.
The series will include hour-long episodes wherein Lee will "poke, prod, and squeeze in order to resolve some unusual dermatological cases, as well as transform the lives of her patients," according to a press release. She'll have to don her "syringes, scalpels, and squirt-protective face masks" (sorry, again) and get down to business. Casting is now open for the series, so anyone in need of Lee's expertise can head over to the TLC website to apply to be treated by Dr. Pimple Popper's very skilled hands.
Some of the exciting things the viewers of the This Is Zit series can look forward to: massive cysts extracted from precarious places on the body (eye pimples, anyone?), dozens of white bumps removed from eyelids, and blackheads buried so deep that they require a tweezer to extract. Honestly, you never know what you're going to find when you're digging around in someone's pores — including a literal horn, like the one Dr. Pimple Popper once found in a man's scalp.
Needless to say, this show is not safe for anyone even the slightest bit squeamish. Don't forget to DVR and watch before dinner.
