'Preacher Wives': TLC Orders New Religious Reality Show
TLC is taking audiences into the holy world of Atlanta's "Preacher Wives." The new reality series from TLC and True Entertainment, the producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," will follow the "outspoken ladies who work to ensure that their churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter."
"We are excited to work with TLC to profile the lives of these strong-willed women," Steven Weinstock, president of True Entertainment, said in a statement. "With most praise in religious communities directed towards male preachers, we are thrilled to give these remarkable ladies the spotlight they crave and deserve."
In a press release, TLC said viewers will see the women at work with their congregations and balancing their busy church life with the family at home.
"Preacher Wives" joins a few new reality shows in the works at TLC. The network is also at work on a new show following Southwest Airlines.
"Air travel has become incredibly accessible, and as a result, millions of travelers navigate the challenges of the airport, especially during the upcoming holiday season," Amy Winter, GM of TLC, said in a statement. "Southwest is a beloved brand, and their customers and employees will reveal the passion, commitment, and fantastic payoff of 'getting there' that helps keep us all flying."
