HGTV crews followed Jen and Brandon Hatmaker’s quest to overhaul an old farmhouse for their growing family in hit show “My Big Family Renovation.” Now the home improvement cable channel has confirmed that they have asked the Hatmakers back for a new series entitled “My Biblical Doctrine Renovation.”
“The Hatmakers have an uncanny knack for tearing down old, worn-out, traditional things and replacing them with new, shiny fixtures and appliances, and they’ll be using these skills to renovate a traditional teaching from Scripture in each episode,” said an HGTV spokesperson.
“In every fun, relatable episode of the show, the Hatmakers will take a boring, traditional biblical doctrine, rip it to shreds using words like ‘tender’ and ‘nuanced,’ and replace it with something much more modern and acceptable,” the spokesperson said as part of the official announcement on the cable channel’s website.
“Viewers will get to see the detailed, step-by-step process of updating out-of-vogue beliefs into something cutting-edge and trendy.”
According to an early episode guide obtained by reporters, the Hatmakers will turn their renovation skills to the traditional understanding of doctrines like sin, gay marriage, hell, and the church.
At publishing time, Jen Hatmaker had tweeted that she was so excited to begin casting aside centuries of church doctrinal agreement in favor of her own vision that she “can’t even.”
#Bam. The nearer the truth, the better the irony. And this is, as things go, nearly ironically perfect.
