I guess there are some churches out there that need a good overhaul.
National Geographic Channel has ordered six episodes of a new unscripted reality television project entitled 'Divine Intervention.' No, not a documentary about miracles and the acts of a deity on our mortal world, but rather an intervention television series being described as "Kitchen Nightmares' for churches." 'Divine Intervention' features a trio of “Church Hoppers” who use a tough love approach in helping struggling faith-based organizations around the country. Presumably, the language will be a tad less salty than 'Kitchen Nightmares,' considering they'll be guests in a religious institution.
'Divine Intervention' is brought to you by T Group Productions, the same team that produced 'Storage Hunters' and 'Mystery Diners.' 'Storage Hunters' is a reality series on TruTV that focused on a collection of bidders and a prominent auctioneer in the US. 'Mystery Diners' is a Food Network series which focuses on a group of diners who, at certain owners' requests, go undercover at specific restaurants and set up undercover stings and unseen surveillance cameras to catch misbehaving restaurant employees in the act.
No word yet on where in the USA these interventions on 'Divine Intervention' will take place, but National Geographic Channel is already eyeing a summer launch for the series, so the preliminaries must have already taken place. More on this unique project will be posted as it becomes available.
