BRAVO MEDIA ANNOUNCES THE PREMIERE OF NEW DOCU-SERIES “THICKER THAN WATER”STARRING BEN AND JEWEL TANKARD ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10
NEW YORK – September 19, 2013 – Yesterday, Bravo Media announced the network’s fall premiere slate, which features “Thicker Than Water,” a new docu-series starring Nashville-based Gospel Jazz artist Ben Tankard and his wife Jewel along with their blended and extended family as they live, love and laugh through the perils and pleasures of life, proving that blood is “Thicker Than Water.”
Premering Sunday, November 10 at 9pm ET/PT, “Thicker Than Water” follows Ben, Jewel and their brood, self-dubbed “The Black Brady Bunch.” This southern family integrates their strong religious conviction with their penchant for the finer things in life. Under the watchful eye of the patriarch and matriarch, the Tankard children, although young adults, still live at home and must abide by Ben and Jewel’s rules. With the belief that “God wants us all to be millionaires,” the Tankards aim to be the best and brightest in everything they do. Along with their drive comes a healthy dose of rivalry, proving the adage “You can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family,” especially true.
“Thicker Than Water” is produced by Sirens Media with Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton Drescher, Lucilla D’Agostino, Kris Lindquist and Michael Call serving as Executive Producers.
