There are “Real Housewives,” “Mob Wives,” “Basketball Wives” and even “Sister Wives.”
Next up: TLC has picked up “Preacher Wives.”
True Entertainment, which produces “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” will handle this Atlanta-based series. The press release notes that they are “outspoken ladies who work to ensure that their churches run as smooth as Southern-churned butter.”
Information is sketchy beyond that. TLC said production has not begun and a launch date has not been made though it will likely be in the fourth quarter. I’m not clear if the cast has even been set yet. Spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg declined to comment.
TLC has ordered a new program that follows strong-willed Atlanta women with leadership roles in the city’s religious community. The women on the show manage day-to-day politics at churches, help troubled or needy congregants, and hire and fire staff. Some even step up to the pulpit to sermonize.
