As relatives swarmed in and out of his family's busy household, Frankie discussed what it was like to watch his life as it unfolds on "Family Bonds," which he watched with a large audience at an HBO screening.
(Family Bonds is a reality TV show of HBO. Frankie is a child featured in the program.)
Q : "As relatives swarmed.....household" describes the scene of the screening. "it" in "as it unfolds.." also refers to the scene, doesn't it?
All the best,
