LIFETIME LAUNCHES WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING BLOCK WITH SEASON TWO OF "PREACHERS' DAUGHTERS" AND ALL-NEW DOCUSERIES "BRING IT!," PREMIERING MARCH 5

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 5, 2014) - Lifetime launches a new programming block Wednesday nights, beginning March 5th with the premieres of the hit family docusoap Preachers' Daughters (#PreachersDaughters) at 9pm ET/PT, followed by the all-new dance competition docuseries, Bring It! (#BringIt) at 10pm ET/PT.

The gap between heaven and hell has never been wider than in the season two of Preachers' Daughters. Lifetime's youngest skewing show, with a median age of 32, the series is produced by Thinkfactory Media and follows the lives of four preacher families after the church doors have been shut. With judging eyes watching, the drama runs deep as the girls struggle with living up to the expectations of their parents and their congregations. As temptation, redemption, guilt and the path to right and wrong collide, will these preachers' daughters choose sin or salvation?

Bring It!, produced by Pilgrim Studios, shines a spotlight on the elite world of hip-hop majorette competitions. Coach Dianna Williams (aka "Miss D") and her Dancing Dolls troupe refuse to lose, pushing themselves to the limit each week in the relentless pursuit of victory. Every pump, thrust and high kick on Bring It! highlights the triumphs and struggles of intense competition, where errors aren't tolerated, mediocrity isn't excused and only a win is acceptable.

ABOUT PREACHERS' DAUGHTERS

The families featured this season include:

· The Cassidys of Boiling Springs, South Carolina

With her dad Jeff recently joining the ministry full-time, Megan discovers everything she does, says and even tweets is now seen by the entire congregation. Her mother, Darleen, is also adjusting to life as a newly minted Associate Pastor's wife while their son, Zac, is in rehab.

· The Colemans of Joliet, Illinois

Now that Taylor is 18, she continues to push the boundaries established by her strict father, Ken, and her mother, Marie. Her desire to be in the limelight as an actress and singer isn't always in line with how her parents feel she should behave and with Ken's failing health, Taylor tries her hardest to be the good daughter; but temptation seems to follow her every step of the way.

· The Elliotts of New Orleans, Louisiana

A former cop, Tori is the free-spirited child of Kenny and Monique, who likes to party hard on Bourbon Street. But when she is served with an eviction notice, she's forced to move back home with her parents and sister, Courtney, and discovers taming her wild ways while living under their roof is not an easy task.

· The Koloffs of Kannapolis, North Carolina, and Nashville, Tennessee

Kolby, who has two preacher parents, finds herself at odds with her father, Nikita, who is pushing her towards a year of ministry, while her mom, Victoria, carries a no-nonsense approach to talking about sex to teens, including Kolby and her friends. Kolby continues to look towards her sisters - Teryn, Tawni and Kendra - to help her navigate the rules set by her overbearing parents.

Preachers' Daughters is produced by Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Adam Reed, Aaron Fishman, Adam Freeman, Emily Sinclair and Leslie Greif and with Lifetime's Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Kimberly Chessler. Lifetime has ordered ten one-hour episodes of the series.

ABOUT BRING IT!

Founded in 2001 by Dianna Williams, or "Miss D," the Dancing Dolls of Jackson, Mississippi, are one of the country's preeminent dance troupes, with over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies under their belt. With their adorable smiles and unique high-energy dance style, the Dolls, ages seven to 17, have taken the world of hip-hop majorette competition by storm. Each episode follows the top Dolls and their dedicated moms as they prepare for cutthroat competitions, parades and showcases, culminating in nail-biting stand-battles against their biggest rivals. Miss D has a well-earned reputation for being both a fierce competitor and a phenomenal mentor who teaches her students the importance of a good education, persistence and positive self-worth. As they compete against dance troupes in Mississippi and Tennessee, Miss D pushes her team to the limit, demanding that they "bring it" each and every week.

Bring It! is produced by Pilgrim Studios. Executive producers for Pilgrim are Craig Piligian and Derek W. Wan. Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan executive produce the series for Lifetime. Eight one-hour episodes of the series have been ordered for this season.

A+E Networks handles global sales for both Preachers' Daughters and Bring It!
