LIFETIME PICKS UP FAMILY DOCUSOAP
Program to Provide Profound Look at Lives of Pastors’ Daughters and their Parents
While Balancing Pressures of Adolescence and Honoring Household Beliefs
LOS ANGELES, CA (December 6, 2012) – Lifetime has picked up Preachers’ Daughters, an all-new family docusoap that will follow the lives of teenage pastors’ daughters and their watchful parents as they balance the temptations of adolescence with the expectations of following household beliefs. The announcement was made today by Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks.
A profound and hard-hitting, but often humorous, look at the daily pressures typical teenagers face, Preachers’ Daughters captures the intense moral, social, sexual and spiritual conflicts these daughters endure as they weigh whether or not to break free from the strong beliefs, time-honored traditions and rituals their loving, but strict, parents have raised them on. Preachers’ Daughters will premiere on Lifetime next year.
“Adolescence can be a challenging time of transition for children and their parents,” said Sharenow. “By opening their homes and lives to our viewers, the families featured on Preachers’ Daughters will provide an honest portrayal of their experiences — bookended by the deep love they share and shifting household dynamics in their beliefs.”
Lifetime has ordered eight hour-long episodes of Preachers’ Daughters, which will be produced by Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Adam Reed, Emily Sinclair, Adam Freeman and Leslie Greif, with Lifetime’s Sharenow, Gena McCarthy, Kimberly Chessler and Toby Faulkner.
A+E Networks will handle global sales for Preachers’ Daughters.
