    Default Holy Hook Up: Christian dating reality show

    Bishop Weeks recasts his ‘Holy Hook Up’

    Bishop Thomas W. Weeks IIII has resurrected his new reality show — and this time he will search for a God-fearing wife on TV instead of the Internet. Weeks said the Christian dating series, now called “The Holy Hook Up: Who Will Be The Next Mrs. Weeks?” will document his search for a new love as he performs his daily duties as leader of an international ministry.

    The 30-minute Atlanta-based reality series will include Weeks sharing the spotlight with singles and broken-hearted couples on the mend. The twice-divorced Pentecostal pastor will dole out relationship advice drawing on his experience as an author, minister and a first-time felon who pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on his ex-wife, national evangelist Juanita Bynum.

    Weeks would not disclose what network he is negotiating with, but said talks are moving along.

    Casting for singles, married, separated or recently divorced couples begins Tuesday, said Weeks. Interested parties should e-mail holyhookup@bishopweeks.com or visit www.bishop weeks.com for more information.

    “I’m very excited about the way this is shaping up,” said Weeks, who appeared on the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show on radio (Kiss 104.1 locally) on Tuesday to talk about the reality series. “It is going to be a very tasteful, five-star presentation.”

    Four couples will be cast on Holy Hook Up, which will feature celebrity guest cameos. The couples will live in an Atlanta residence together for three months. Weeks will play matchmaker to singles and provide relationship counseling to determine their compatibility. Newly engaged couples and those in struggling relationships also will have their bonds examined and tested to see if their love was meant to be.

    “As Bishop Weeks counsels the four couples, he will start his search for the next Mrs. Weeks,” Weeks’ publicist Margaret Wright said in a statement. “Each week, Bishop Weeks will meet his new date and assess whether she has the potential to become a finalist for becoming the next Mrs. Weeks. This search will not be easy. Bishop Weeks is looking for someone who will share his vision of ministry and entrepreneurial spirit.”

    True to reality show formats, the wannabe wives will face challenges to determine whether their hearts are truly open to love or whether they are only in it for the fame. The challenges will range from the “basic to the outrageous,” Wright said.

    “At the end of the series there will be a wedding,” Wright said. “The union can be that of Bishop Weeks or that of his understudies.”
    Weeks’ divorce lawyer Randy Kessler also may appear on the show to dole out advice to the pastor.

    “He underwent sincere and serious emotional hardship,” Kessler said. “He learned from it …I am sure the reality show will have a positive impact on many people as Bishop Weeks is a strong leader with personal experience that he knows can help other.”

    Weeks says he is inviting his followers to observe his personal life so they can get a Christian perspective on dating and coping with the desire for intimacy. Weeks will soon release a book about the subject called “Finding Yourself While In Transition.”

    “My interest as a single individual will be to focus on a developing a godly relationship and the process it takes to do that,” Weeks said. “It is going to be quite interesting.”
