Lifetime Will Venture Into Convent for Groundbreaking Series THR
Lifetime has greenlighted a new series that will be set in a convent. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that the reality show “The Sisterhood” will focus on five women deciding whether to become nuns.
The unscripted series will mark the first time cameras have been allowed inside a Catholic convent, where the show will track the five women as they live and work together before deciding whether to take vows, the story reports.
The article adds: “The series will explore whether the modern women can rise to serve God when they are cut off from family and friends and embedded in an unfamiliar community. By taking vows of chastity, poverty and obedience, each of the women featured on ‘The Sisterhood’ leaves behind everything they've come to love -- boyfriends, fashion, jewelry -- to see if they want to become servants to the Church and Brides of Christ.”
Religious programming has had a resurgence following the success of History’s “The Bible,” among other programming. “The Sisterhood” comes from Hot Snakes Media, which is the studio behind “Breaking Amish” and “Return to Amish.”
