When asked how the network reacted to learning of Josh's past and if it raised concerns about their screening process during casting, Daniels cited a documentary on child abuse, which aired in August, and the three-part special that focused on sisters Jessa Seewald and Jill Dillard, whom were both molested by their brother, as the network's response.
"These are people who had something happening in their lives a long time ago,” she said. “We took the show off the air and immediately connected with two well-respected agencies to figure out the appropriate response. And one of those responses was the documentary to put the word out about a situation that doesn't really get talked about."
The three-part special focusing on the Duggar sisters was watched by more than three million people.
"The audience clearly cares about these girls," she said, before going on to say that they are "still talking and considering" more episodes focused on the sisters, but haven't made any decisions yet.
