Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar hid son Josh Duggar’s disturbing and illegal behavior for years, a new limited documentary series reveals.

Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming “Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets” documentary delves into the controversial life of the Duggars, who rose to fame following the debut of “17 Kids and Counting” on TLC in 2008.

The reality series showcased Jim Bob and Michelle and their then 17 children — all of whose names begin with the letter J — with more who were born during the show’s seven-year run.

The family followed the teachings of a controversial sect called the Institute for Basic Life Principles (IBLP), which was founded by Bill Gothard. The minister, 88, was forced to resign in 2014 when he was accused of sexual harassment by more than 30 women.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar reportedly covered up son Josh’s molestation scandal for years before it made headlines.

The Duggars’ reality show — which was basically an advertorial for IBLP — was abruptly canceled in 2015 after In Touch published an article claiming Josh had allegedly molested five young girls, including four of his sisters, between 2002 and 2003 when he was a teenager. Josh, now 35, was later sentenced to 12 years in prison in May 2022 for receiving and possessing child porn.

Duggar family friends Jim and Bobye Holt appear in the new Amazon Prime Video doc and share that their eldest daughter, Kaeleigh Holt, was dating Josh – with the intention of marriage – when they found out about the molestation charges in 2003.
