HBOs Big Love

On Sunday, March 15th, HBO will be running an episode of Big Love, their show that portrays an LDS family living in a polygamous relationship, called Goin' to the Chapel. A write up of this episode can be found in this week's TV Guide on page 48. From TV Guide's article:
It’s one thing for Bill and Barb Henrickson’s inner
circle to know they have two other wives at
home…but letting the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints in on the secret? That’s a whole
other story. “It’s almost a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’
policy,” says executive producer Mark Olsen. Their
under-the-radar status will change this week when
Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) faces the consequences
of breaking the rules and is called to an excommunication
hearing. “We researched it out the
wazoo,” says Olsen, who along with executive producer
Will Scheffer hired an ex-Mormon consultant
to help the set and wardrobe designers re-create
even the tiniest details. “We go into the endowment
room and the celestial room [areas of the
temple], and we present what happens in those
ceremonies. That’s never been shown on television

They started having this show on air in France but I guess it did not work out since I have not heard about it for a while.
I cannot believe what I am reading. More than hurt it makes me feel sad/
