"Monster In-Laws" (A&E TV show) is a reality series that shines a light on married couples dealing with meddling in-laws as they try to make peace with the help of an unconventional, no-nonsense relationship expert.

In-laws: most people have them ... and sometimes, they can be a whole lot more than a newlywed bargained for. Each revealing episode of "Monster In-Laws" will feature real-life married couples as they put their relatable in-law problems on display. Sometimes funny and sometimes not, one spouse finds themselves in the middle of the person they married and a member of their immediate family, desperate to put an end to the battles that are tearing them apart. Seasoned relationship experts bring the family under one roof and force them to face their issues head on so they can reach common ground and mend their broken relationships.

Former trial lawyer and relationship expert Mel Robbins will do whatever it takes to achieve a breakthrough with these couples. As one of two therapists this season, she devises unique exercises to get to the heart of the issue. Psychology, counseling and human development expert Dr. Tom Kersting aggressively undertakes each case and makes his patients face their issues head on. Dr. Tom and Mel will try anything to break down these walls; including tying the families up with rope to force communication, duct taping the in-laws mouths shut to get them to listen, having a mother challenge her son-in-law to sell his beloved car to help with wedding costs and surprising a daughter-in-law with a trip to the pawn shop where she must sell all the jewelry she's wearing to repay mother in law.

In the series premiere, the Ciccone family finds themselves at their wits' end. Son-in-law Anthony says starting a restaurant with his father-in-law Richie is the worst mistake he's ever made, since it has driven a wedge between his relationship with his wife and their young daughter. Meanwhile, strong-willed Richie refuses to see where he's at fault, while therapist Mel forces the two to switch places to get a better point of view.

"Monster In-Laws" is produced by Leftfield Pictures ("Pawn Stars," "American Restoration"), for A&E Network. Executive producers for Leftfield Pictures are Brent Montgomery and Courtney Montgomery. Executive producers for A&E are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Stephen Harris.
