Meet Ben and Jewel Tankard, the stars of Bravo’s highly anticipated breakout series, “Thicker Than Water” and their larger-than-life brood of five grown children. A self-described cross between the iconic Cosby Show’s “Huxtables” and “The Brady Bunch”, the Tankards hail from humble beginnings with a faith infused rags-to-riches story. Zany, irreverent, God-centered, drama-filled and provincial but loving the luxe life — this new-southern heartland family headed by its artistic patriarch may be flawed, but with a heart of gold and a fierce allegiance to their clan. Set to debut Sunday, November 10 following the premiere of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, “Thicker Than Water” follows Ben and Jewel’s blended family as they live, love and laugh through the perils and pleasures of life.
EPISODE ONE DESCRIPTION:
Pastors and parents, Ben and Jewel Tankard, work at raising their blended family under one roof. Ben becomes protective when a young man courts his youngest daughter, Cyrene, as his prom date. Brooklyn longs for her family’s support when her marathon coincides with Cyrene’s prom. Britney and Brooklyn go on a double date where their checkered pasts are revealed.

About The Tankards:
Ben Tankard is an award winning gospel Jazz musician and Jewel is a successful financial planner; together they are self-made millionaires who also run a Christian ministry, Destiny Center. The Tankard children, although grown-up, still live at home and must abide by Ben and Jewel’s rules. With faith, family and finance as its core, Thicker Than Water will be the most compelling new docu-series this year because it shows a real family dealing with all of life’s ups-and-downs, but loving every minute of it because they are blessed – financially!
