Preachers' Daughters Reality Series Headed To Lifetime

Teenagers are often unpredictable, which theoretically means they should always make for great reality television. Lifetime plans to test that theory in 2013 with Preachers' Daughters, a new reality series that will take a look at religious households and how parents manage--or don’t manage--to reign in unruly female teens.

The network seems pretty confident in the premise (and besides, it should be cheap to make) and has ordered eight episodes of Preachers' Daughters. Although there’s no current news on who exactly has been cast in the series, it will follow several groups of families who all have two things in common: they will all feature a pastor, as well as a teenage daughter. According to THR, the company who produced Hatfields and McCoys, Thinkfactory Media, will also be behind Preachers' Daughters. Adam Freeman, Leslie Greif, Adam Reed, and Emily Sinclair will executive produce the series.

Preachers' Daughters is only the newest of several reality series Lifetime has recently added to its programming slate. Other new fodder includes Double Divas, which will follow the inner workings of a lingerie business in Atlanta, and Supermarket Superstars, which George Clooney’s girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, will host. I don’t know if Lifetime has plans for a legitimate reality block, but there is certainly enough new programming coming up to launch one, if the network feels like it.

TV Blend will keep you posted when Preachers' Daughters gets an official air date.
