TLC TO DOCUMENT THE LIVES OF PREACHER WIVES IN NEW SERIES

(New York, NY) - Congregations of thousands thrive in Atlanta's bustling metropolis, but it is not just the preacher men who help to keep these communities afloat. TLC has announced plans to premiere PREACHER WIVES (wt), a candid look into the holy worlds of 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," said Steven Weinstock, president of True Entertainment. "With most praise in religious communities directed towards male preachers, we are thrilled to give these remarkable ladies the spotlight they crave and deserve."

These larger-than-life women play a dynamic role in maintaining and expanding their devoted following. They manage day-to-day politics, help troubled or needy congregants and hire and fire staff. Some even step up to the pulpit to spread their own personalized sermons of inspiration and enlightenment. Viewers will also get a peek into their lives as mothers - seeing if they can strike a balance between being a parent and a respected public figure.

The standards are high and the expectations can be overwhelming, but these driven, spiritual women are on a mission to overcome challenges, break molds and expand their group of devotees.

PREACHER WIVES (wt) will be produced for TLC by True Entertainment. Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh will serve as executive producers.
