Bravo Announces New Reality Show “Thicker Than Water” Starring Ben Tankard
Posted on Sep, 19th


Looks like faith-based entertainment is on the rise (see: We tv’s Mary Mary, BET’s The Sheards, Oxygen’s Preacher’s of LA), and we’re excited about it!

Gospel musician, Ben Tankard and his family are slated to hit the small screen courtesy of their forthcoming Bravo reality series, ‘Thicker Than Water‘.

Details below… 



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 “ThickerThan Water.”
Premiering SundayNovember 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.
Big congrats to the Tankards!

    This show is being shed in a NEGATIVE LIGHT on. Facebook….it is being cast as a show all about promoting being wealthy and showing off all you have. He is wrong to suggest God wants EVERYONE to be rich…’s just true or biblical.

  2. leah says:

    The show is about a successful black family. Nothing wrong with that!

  3. NaturalMystic says:

    Looks shameful to me…the indulgence is over the top, and what’s up with the church sign…shouldnt they be advertising for God instead they put up pictures of themselves. Disgusting.

  4. DJD says:

    The show is a mess . The show is not taking the time to info us about how God bless them with their success just a bunch of bragging goin on . The Wife had terrible weave and the man could not preach with cheap looking suites on. THE SHOW IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOOD RICH People. They should take some of that money and buy them so class… don’t watch spend your time doing something way better

  5. Shey says:

    the tacky tankard’s this show is terrible in every light possible.

  6. john holmes says:

    Their constant petty arguments (for sake of reality tv, of course) and sinful coveting of opulence is disgusting. If you expect a show of them being grateful for the money they have and their support of the less fortunate, you will be gravely disappointed.
