‘Preachers’ coming to Lifetime

Reality series examines daughters of pastors

Lifetime has picked up “Preachers’ Daughters,” a new reality series that will follow the lives of the teen daughters of pastors.

Cabler has ordered eight hourlong episodes from Thinkfactory Media and plans to bow the docusoap next year.

Pickup arrives after TLC announced “The Sisterhood,” an unscripted series focused on preacher wives in Atlanta.

“Preachers’ Daughters” will be exec produced by Thinkfactory’s Adam Reed, Emily Sinclair, Adam Freeman and Leslie Greif. Sharenow, Gena McCarthy, Kimberly Chessler and Toby Faulkner will exec produce for Lifetime.

A+E Networks will handle global sales for the skein.
