image for UK's voyeuristic Jade Goody saga to be followed by "Octu-Mom S.I.D.S. Watch" Reality TV show
"Octu-Mom S.I.D.S. Watch" starts right now!

London, England - Promising to be just as controversial, if not at least as tasteless, the UK's TV channel "Living" that brought you everything Jade Goody (including the three-part series of the Jade Goody cancer saga) has just signed a deal with Octu-Mom to place Nanny Cams throughout her newly refurbished residence in La Habra, California.

All in anticipation of one of the octupletes being shaken to death by their overworked stressed out unemployed mother (possibly suffering from postpartum depression), or one of them expectedly dying under suspicious circumstances in their sleep of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (S.I.D.S.).

"Statistically speaking the odds are in our favor," said spokesman for "Living". "One of those cute adorable tykes has got to go. And like with the BBC's coverage of the Jade Goody saga, we want our viewing audience to be there when it happens."

According to "Living", the live Nanny Cams will be placed in all the usual inconspicuous and innocuous places like inside clocks, DVD players and Teddy Bears. Not so much to alarm the octupeltes or protect them by deterring any errant behavior, but to catch the perpetrator in the act, while it is happening.

"Octu-Mom S.I.D.S. Watch' will provide the UK viewing audience not only with sympathy like it did with Jade Goody that it has come to expect, but now with something new: suspense," said "Living". "And talk about interactive TV. Just imagine as our voyeuristic blood thirsty members of our viewing audience tunes in to the show, not to just as passive observers to watch another diaper change, burping or 3 a.m. breastfeeding, but as possible witnesses to child neglect, abuse or even a case of multiple inficide. It's 'Jeopardy', 'CSI' and 'Sesame Street' all rolled up in one."

Of course, "Living," insists that the octupetes will be in no real danger, denying they are using them as bait, exploiting them as well as the unsuspecting viewing audience for commerce.

"To the contrary, we argue it's the placement of our Nanny Cams that in fact ensures the safety of the helpless vulnerable underweight premature tiny tykes who are barely able to take a baby breath on their own," said "Living". "But just in case, we got it all on tape for our viewing audience to salivate and TiVo over, and over again."
