By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Christian actress Tia Mowry-Hardrict announced she’s developing a family-friendly pilot for a new show called TIA MOWRY’S CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.
Mowry-Hardrict will team up with Jukin Media and Kin for the show.
“The show will provide all the fun, light-hearted moments that families are really seeking in their programming given the state of the world right now,” said Jonathan Skogmo, founder and CEO of Jukin Media.
[TIA MOWRY’S CHALLENGE ACCEPTED] will feature weekly home challenges with audience members encouraged to participate by submitting their own challenge videos. It will showcase humorous moments that families have experienced during quarantine and Mowry’s own family members will make surprise cameos. Mowry and her executive Tiegen Kosiak are producing.
These challenges are meant to be silly, where family members come together to face off or work together, depending on the challenge requirements.
Mowry-Hardrict shared her excitement on social media, “Who’s ready to make some FUN FAMILY VIDEOS! ❤️💕”
The Pepperdine University alum currently stars in the family-friendly Netflix series FAMILY REUNION.
Movieguide® found one of the latest episodes of FAMILY REUNION to have a very evangelical Christian worldview:
FAMILY REUNION is an excellent family sitcom with positive faith and values on Netflix. It’s about a professional football player who retires and moves his family from Seattle back to their hometown of Columbus, Georgia, where his mother and his father, a pastor, live.In the episode “Remember When Daddy Came Home?,” the program’s 13th episode, a family discussion about baptism with Grandpa and Grandma convinces Ami, the youngest member of the son’s family, to get baptized. However, Ami’s father must help her get over her fear of water.
“Remember When Daddy Came Home?” has many good, clean laughs. For example, little Ami’s fear of water causes her to splash water on Grandma’s new hairdo, and Ami’s parents have a funny argument about who upsets the husband’s religious parents more. Even better, the episode ends with a happy, touching baptism scene where Ami’s father rediscovers his lost faith and gets baptized with his daughter. It also contains positive references to Jesus and the Holy Trinity. The “Remember When Daddy Came Home?” episode of FAMILY REUNION is a great evangelistic program full of Christian faith and values.

This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine. As I’ve suffered with #anxiety and #fear these past few months. I’ve looked to my #ancestors and have meditated on the #strength and the #faith that they have endured while being on this earth. Additionally, I’ve meditated on what my mother told me a few weeks ago. As I get out of bed everyday, put my feet on the ground with an open heart and say, “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength. Amen 🙏🏽
