"The Sheards" (TV show) is a reality docu-series that airs on BET that profiles the mega-popular Detroit-based gospel superstar family.

Gospel icon Karen Clark Sheard, part of the legendary Clark Sisters, her husband Bishop J. Drew, a mega church pastor in the Motor City and their children, Stellar Award winner and Grammy-nominated gospel songstress Kierra Sheard and producer J. Drew Sheard, star in the series. Told through the eyes of Kierra and J. Drew, we will follow them as they navigate family, friends, and faith in a secular world.

The explosive first season takes us on a drama filled ride as Kierra Sheard begins to break out of her family's shadow and looks to find more mainstream success with her own unique voice. Facing the difficulty of choosing between working with her brother, who she's collaborated with on all her previous albums, and experimenting with new producers to achieve a new sound, Kierra also struggles with juggling her new found independence with family, losing weight and love.

J. Drew is focused on being the next big hit-making secular producer which goes directly against his family's wishes. Growing up in the church, his great grandfather, grandfather and father all became bishops. Bishop J. Drew wants his son to be the next in line to take the pulpit and won't hear otherwise. J. Drew also has baby mama drama with Shantel, the mother of his two year old son. She wants to have a relationship with him beyond their son, but J. Drew wants to enjoy single life and focus solely on co-parenting.

Karen Clark Sheard is balancing being a preacher's wife, gospel superstar and doting mother, while Bishop J. Drew is preparing to run for a higher office within his International Church of God in Christ denomination. However the Bishop's new position could bring even more restrictions on the family unit, especially as Kierra and J. Drew extend their social circles and look to branch out beyond the gospel world career wise. Will the children find secular mainstream success or will the church prevail?

"The Sheards" is produced by Entertainment One Television with Tara Long, Holly Carter, Eric Hoberman, John Morayniss, Donny Johnson and J. Drew Sheard serving as executive producers.
