Evelyn Preston and Zenobia Groves spent their childhood years working in Hollywood, but the sisters — who are now grown mothers — are preparing for the release of their new venture: “The Beverlys,” a show they believe will have a major impact on kids’ faith.
Set to release this summer, “The Beverlys” is a Pure Flix original comedy series that centers on three gifted orphans who are discovered by record producer Tommy Beverly. The girls and their manager, Jamie, are in for a roller coaster of laughs and adventures.
“‘The Beverlys’ shows that you can be perfectly imperfect,” Evelyn told PureFlix.com’s “Pure Talk.” “Because they’re not the perfect family … they go through so many things, so many ups and downs.”
She went on to proclaim that “God is perfect” and that people can get through anything with His help and guidance.
“That’s the message we show in every episode,” Evelyn added.
Watch the sisters reveal details about “The Beverlys”:
As it turns out, the sisters pulled from their own experience when it came to crafting the characters’ backgrounds and life stories.
“Our mother runs a foster care home,” Zenobia said, noting that she and Evelyn saw foster children coming through their home throughout their lives. “They’re coming in abused, they’re coming in broken.”
This experience led the sisters to want to help those in need, with “The Beverlys” crafting a plot around the experiences of three talented foster kids. There’s a biblical lesson in every episode, with the sisters aim to encourage kids to become more interested in the Bible.
They’re hoping that the show will help instill values in all kids, while also speaking to those foster kids who might not get the chance to see other shows that represent their life and struggles.
“It really gave us a heart just to help people,” Evelyn said. “We were able to see firsthand what [foster kids] were going through.”
Evelyn and Zenobia decided to use their personal experiences working in Hollywood and their passion for kids in need to create “The Beverlys,” with Zenobia explaining that they felt God calling them to work behind the camera.
