We're not precisely sure how to treat this one, so we're going to go ahead and use the "jump in with both feet" method. TLC is launching a new reality show called Family Armor that follows the exploits of two Mormon brothers-in-law that build bulletproof cars for a living. That doesn't sounds so sexy. Try this quote from the press release on for size:
"When not at the factory, Trent is the father of six rowdy children and married to his live-wire of a wife, Courtney. Jason and his wife Lacy are first-time parents, working to catch up in the baby race. Trent and Jason devote their time to work, kin and religion...and along the way they get to shoot guns and blow things up."
Yeah! Much better, right? It's such a hairbrained, preposterous, stretch of an idea for a show that it just might work. Now, we know they're on different networks, but if Family Armor can somehow hook up with The Real Housewives of Atlanta, well, fireworks people – fireworks! Full press release after the jump.

PRESS RELEASE:

"FAMILY ARMOR": TV'S NEXT PIERCING HIT
STILETTO Television in Association with TLC Presents New Reality TV Show
PREMIERES THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19th at 10pm/9c on TLC


LOS ANGELES, CA (November 11, 2009)-FAMILY ARMOR, reality TV's newest entry, introduces viewers to the world of vehicle armoring and bulletproofing. Debuting on November 19th at 10:00pm (ET/PT), this one hour special follows two Mormon brothers-in-law, who own Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC)-the leading worldwide supplier of armored passenger vehicles, bulletproof cars, cash-in-transit vehicles, armored SWAT trucks, and custom luxury limousines. This one-hour TLC special, produced by STILETTO Television and executive produced by Mark C. Grove, Garry C. Kief and Troy P. Queen, is one of the first to follow the everyday lives of a devout Mormon family on reality television.

FAMILY ARMOR follows the dynamic in-laws as they balance faith and family life with their dangerous business-transforming everyday cars into 007-esque, bomb-resistant and gadget-filled fortresses for domestic and international corporate executives, celebrities, diplomats and soccer moms. Led by charismatic Trent Kimball and his younger brother-in-law, Jason, TAC is aided and abetted by a motley crew of expert engineers. When not at the factory, Trent is the father of six rowdy children and married to his live-wire of a wife, Courtney. Jason and his wife Lacy are first-time parents, working to catch up in the baby race. Trent and Jason devote their time to work, kin and religion...and along the way they get to shoot guns and blow things up.

"Cars, guns and God...this show has it all," Grove said. "The charismatic Kimball and Forston families are a blast to watch as they guide us through the complex art of bulletproofing vehicles, all the while lifting the veil on their mysterious Mormon faith."
