U.S. cable network GMC TV has commissioned Toronto-based Peace Point Entertainment to produce The Bulloch Family Ranch (pictured), a 7 x 60-minutes docu-series about a working class couple who are raising 25 needy teenagers.

The show is the music and entertainment channel’s largest original commission to date and will debut in November. Shot at the Bulloch family ranch in Lakeland, Florida, the show follows parents Rusty and Julie as they raise their two biological children alongside 25 street kids.

“The Bulloch family is truly remarkable – they really are The Blind Side x 25,” said Peace Point president Les Tomlin. “While delightfully entertaining, it’s their heart and authenticity that make this project special and we are delighted to be working with GMC to give this inspiring series an audience.”

The Bulloch Family Ranch is executive produced by Tomlin and Cry Baby Media’s Danny Passman. Peace Point Rights will handle international distribution for the series.
