New Series to Follow Atlanta “Preacher Wives”
(WAOK/THR)-The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” may have some competition in the city. The network TLC has announced plans to create a new reality show centered around the lives of the wives of prominent Atlanta preachers.
The network announced on Tuesday that it’s partnering with True Entertainment, the production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta, for a new reality series with the working title Preacher Wives. It will follow the “First Ladies” of Atlanta area churches.
“We are excited to work with TLC to profile the lives of these strong-willed women,” said True Entertainment president Steven Weinstock in a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter. “With most praise in religious communities directed towards male preachers, we are thrilled to give these remarkable ladies the spotlight they crave and deserve.”
The series will not only follow the women as they play out their role as preacher’s wives in the congregation, but also give a view of their home lives and how they balance both roles.
True Entertainment’s Weinstock and Glenda Hersh will serve as executive producers. The production company’s projects also include OWN’s Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes and Unfaithful, Logo’s The A-List, and Bravo’s Platinum Hit. TLC did not announce a projected airdate.
