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.
Three families are showcased: The Perrys, The Colemans and The Koloffs
In The Perry household, Olivia is a teenage mom, living at home with her parents. The biggest challenge for her is keeping her faith -- she isn't who sure who the father of her child is. She's struggling with telling her parents the news that she was dating more than one boy at one time. Her parents seek prayer as the answer rather than discipline. Olivia’s sisters Emily, a model living in Los Angles and Audrey never went through the problems her sisters are facing.
Taylor Coleman challenges her parents daily. Her father's mistakes with her older siblings, causes him to keep a tighter reign on his youngest. Taylor feels caged and trapped in her life. Looking for freedom, Taylor's rebellion is out in full force as she sneaks out, kisses boys and gives into temptation all while studying the teachings of The Lord. While her mother Marie tries to keep the peace, Taylor confides in her half-sister Kendra, who Ken kicked out of the house when she became pregnant.
In the Koloff household, Kolbly is starting to date, much to her parents', who are both preachers, chagrin. Her father, Nikita, a former professional wrestler-turned traveling evangelist who often gives sermons to thousands of parishioners at a time, has his issues to deal with as Kolby is growing up to be a beautiful woman, who turns boys' heads. Kolby's mother Victoria (Nikita's ex-wife)is a preacher herself. She carries a completely different approach to raising a sexually curious teenage daughter than Nikita. As the director of two pregnancy centers, talks to Kolby and her friends, about sex. Kolby's mother wants all of her potential boyfriends to fill out applications in order to date her. She has the "Ten Most Complicated Rules To Dating My Daughter." Her boyfriend also gets the sex talk. Kolby is embarrassed by her mother's actions to say the least.
The lives of teenage girls all over the world as seemingly similar and really not as different. The stigma of being a P. K. (Preacher's Kid) seems to heighten the expectations for some reason. Teenagers rebel all the time and sometimes want different goals and dreams for themselves that are different from their parents. These daughters just have to deal with religion as the family business.
