Lifetime already has one family docu-soap on its schedule (“The Houstons: On Our Own”), and it’s time to add another, from a very different end of the spectrum. The network announced Thursday that it has picked up “Preacher’s Daughters,” a series that follows teenage daughters of pastors and their disapproving parents.
The series will show what happens as these teens endure “intense moral, social, sexual and spiritual conflicts,” and at the same time, have to decide whether to “break free from the strong beliefs, time-honored traditions and rituals their loving, but strict, parents have raised them on.”
Calling the show “profound” but also “often humorous,” Lifetime added the that series will debut sometime next year.
This is on the heels of TLC announcing it has picked up a new reality show called “The Sisterhood,” which looks at preacher’s wives in Atlanta, premiering Jan. 1.
