Provocative new docuseries Preachers' Daughters coming to Canada

PreachersDaughtersLifetime is premiering a provocative new docuseries next month called Preachers’ Daughters, which they claim is an “eye-opening look at the real lives of these pastors’ daughters as they attempt to balance life as normal teenagers and the strict code of conduct established by their religious parents”.

Faced with luring distractions, the daughters regularly find themselves caught between the temptations of adolescence and their relationship with the Lord. The series offers a candid but often humorous look into the lives of these girls, with the developing stories shocking viewers and potentially changing the families’ lives forever.
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 and kissing boys. 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 travelling 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. Kolby seeks support and guidance from her three older sisters – Teryn (30), Tawni (28) and Kendra (20) –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.

Series premieres Tuesday, March 19 at 10pm ET/PT
