Abby and Brittany Hensel are conjoined twins living extraordinary lives. But that doesn’t stop them from trying to be as ordinary as possible.

That’s the concept of Abby and Brittany, a new TLC show that follows the twins as they prepare to graduate from college and search for a post-grad job.

“Everywhere they go, they get the stares,” says a friend of the twins in PEOPLE’s exclusive preview of the show.

However, the Hensels – who share a body but have two distinct personalities – don’t let it get to them.

“We throw it out there, and we let it go,” says Abby.

Abby and Brittany, which premieres Aug. 28 at 10 p.m. ET, will also follow the twins’ post-graduation travels through Europe.
