U.S. cable network GMC TV has added Peacepoint Entertainment Group’s The Bulloch Family Ranch and Arnold Shapiro Productions’ I Forgive You to its schedule.
GMC has ordered seven one-hour episodes of The Bulloch Family Ranch, a series following Julie and Rusty Bulloch, a working class couple who have taken 25 kids into their home from the streets and broken families.
One of the adopted children has since become a professional football player with the New York Jets, and GMC bills the series as “The Blind Side x 25.” Production will begin this month in Florida. For Peacepoint Entertainment Group, Les Tomlin serves as executive producer, while Danny Passman is executive producer for Cry Baby Media.
In addition, GMC has ordered one-hour special I Forgive You with intentions to turn it into a series. From Arnold Shapiro Productions and Bayonne Entertainment, the documentary focuses on overcoming hatred, anger and revenge.
Both projects were part of GMC’s first reality series development slate, consisting of 13 new series. The network expects to greenlight additional series in the near future.
“The Bulloch Family Ranch and I Forgive You will be emblematic of [GMC's] approach, providing positive, emotionally compelling real-life stories,” said Brad Siegel, GMC’s vice chairman.
