LIFETIME TO DEBUT FAMILY DOCUSOAP "PREACHERS' DAUGHTERS" ON TUESDAY, MARCH 12

Compelling New Series Follows the Behind-the-Altar Lives of Three Families While Balancing Temptations of Adolescence with Faith-Based Beliefs

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 29, 2013) - Teaching kids right from wrong may take a village... except when it takes a congregation! Lifetime will premiere its provocative new family docuseries Preachers' Daughters, following the lives of three families for a behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon concludes, on Tuesday, March 12, at 10pm ET/PT. Produced by Thinkfactory Media (multiple Golden Globe(R) Award and Emmy(R)-nominated miniseries Hatfields & McCoys and family docusoap Gene Simmons Family Jewels), Preachers' Daughters reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors' daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents' strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith. What happens will change these families forever, and surprise viewers with this unvarnished peek into their lives and the universal issues all households with teenagers face daily.

The families of Preachers' Daughters are:

The Colemans of Joliet, Illinois

Eighteen-year-old Taylor is set on pushing boundaries established by her strict father, Ken, a pastor of City of Refuge Pentecostal Church, who,following the mistakes he made with his older children, wants nothing more than to keep Taylor as his little angel. Taylor craves freedom from all of the rules in the house and occasionally rebels by sneaking out, kissing boys and giving into temptation, all the while trying to maintain her relationship with her Lord. While her mother Marie tries to keep the peace between Taylor and Ken, she fears his stern rules will push Taylor to act out even more, especially when she gets to college. Conflicted and frustrated with her father's demands, Taylor confides in her half-sister Kendra, who Ken kicked out of the house when she was pregnant at 20.

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

Kolby is a fun-loving, curious 16-year-old ready to start dating, but quickly discovers it won't be as easy as she thinks since she has not one, but two preacher parents. Her father, Nikita, a former professional wrestler-turned traveling evangelist who often gives sermons to thousands of parishioners at a time, has his own struggles with Kolby's adolescence. Meanwhile, her mother and Nikita's ex-wife, Victoria, a Christian preacher who hosts a faith-based radio show and is the director of two pregnancy centers, carries a no-nonsense approach to talking to teens, including Kolby and her friends, about sex. With three older sisters - Teryn (30), Tawni (28) and Kendra (20) - Kolby leans on them for support and guidance on her life, particularly when Nikita and Victoria become too overbearing and embarrassing.

The Perrys of Oceano, California

Olivia is an 18-year-old teen mom who, after partying hard, using drugs and drinking in high school, dramatically changed her life after the birth of her daughter. While trying to balance life as a young single mom, Olivia relies heavily on both her family and her faith, especially when she questions the paternity of her baby. Her father Mark, pastor of Everyday Church, and wife Cheryl, lead a hands-on approach to parenting, but often rely on prayer, rather than discipline, for their daughters. Olivia's sister Emily (20) lives in Los Angeles, where she works as a model and faces temptation as part of her lifestyle and career, while oldest sister Audrey (23) never went through a rebellious phase like her sisters are facing.

Preachers' Daughters is produced by Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Adam Reed, Adam Freeman, Emily Sinclair and Leslie Greif, with Lifetime's Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Kimberly Chessler. Lifetime has ordered nine episodes of the series.

Global sales for Preachers' Daughters will be handled by A+E Networks.
