Anti-Gay Benham Brothers Nearing New TV Deal
Following being dropped by HGTV in the wake of their anti-gay activism, David and Jason Benham are allegedly close to securing a deal with a new network for their house-flipping series, Flip It Forward.
The brothers also said on The O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel on Friday that "a couple" of networks are pursuing them.
To seek a deal with another network, the Benhams have been speaking with Faith Driven Consumer, an advocacy group best known for a controversial poll disparaging the Paramount film,Noah, and for collecting 250,000 signatures in defense of Duck Dynasty after star Phil Robertson made remarks critical of homosexuality.
Faith Driven Consumer has launched a petition drive in support of the Benhams that so far boasts 10,000 signatures.
“We are brokering a possible deal between them and their show and an alternative network to HGTV,” said Faith Driven Consumer founder Chris Stone, who declined to say which network the brothers are in discussions with. “Whether it’s HGTV or the network we’re talking about, we want to see them on TV.”
Think they'll pull it off? Where do you think the Benhams will land, Instincters?
