Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard got married just last month, and sources say the newlyweds are already hoping to follow in the footsteps of Jill’s parents by angling for their own reality series.

Insiders claim that the reason Jill has been sharing so many private photos like the one above to her open, public Instagram account is that she’s trying to drum up interest in her home life to help build an audience for a future TLC show.

It seems to be working, as photos of Jill and Derick’s honeymoon became viral hits among 19 Kids and Counting Fans.

And the young couple certainly has a lot to gain from their bid for a spinoff. Industry analysts have called the Duggars the most powerful family on TV, and the Dillards are a far cry from such rarefied air at the moment:


Jill is currently a housewife (she and her new husband are likely planning to start a family very soon) and Derick is a tax accountant for an Arkansas Wal Mart.

The young couple isn’t struggling to get by, but a TLC reality show would certainly provide a major boost to their income.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that Jill and Derick have no interest in a series of their own and are simply eager to share their new lives with the world. 

After all, if Jill and Derick’s Wal Mart wedding registry taught us anything, it’s that these two are content to live a simple, frugal life.
