gacGAC-TV will debut a new reality series, The Willis Clan, beginning June 27 at 8 p.m. ET. The show focuses on Toby and Brenda Willis and their 12 children, ages 2-21, who are accomplished singers, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and, in the case of the older kids, competitive dancers.

The Willis Clan band–comprised of the seven oldest siblings–has created and sold an album of original material and is being courted by a major label. The show gives viewers an inside glimpse at life for the Willis Clan, which includes homeschooling, chores, rehearsing for appearances and competitions, designing and creating costumes for competitions, or preparing to travel en mass to a contest or gig.

“GAC did a special on the Willis Clan a little over a year ago and we continued to get great fan feedback on this incredibly talented and loving family,” says GAC GM Sarah Trahern. “They excel at so many things; we can’t wait to see what’s next for this unique family.”
