Forever Jones

Bounce TV has announced this morning via press release that it will premiere its first original non-scripted series, Forever Jones Presented by Walmart, on Wednesday, June 5th at 9pm ET.

The announcement comes on the heels of Bounce TV's successful original special A Forever Jones Holiday

The new reality series will delve deeper into the daily lives and challenges of the close-knit, faith-based family and gospel group foreverJONES

Set in the family's hometown of Shreveport, LA, episodes will air on Wednesday nights at 9pm over a six-week period.

The family band foreverJONES came to prominence in the gospel music world after their smash single He Wants it All won Stellar Awards, was nominated for a GRAMMY® and Dove Award. 

This powerful group, parents Dewitt and Kim Jones and their five children, continues their mission to combine the spirit of worship and core messages of their faith through music. Forever Jones Presented by Walmart chronicles each band member as they aim to stay united while simultaneously attempting to separate and balance their own personal dreams and aspirations. The issues that the family tackles in the inaugural season include dealing with one of the children heading off to college and the possibility of launching a solo career.  Their goal is to weave their way back onto the music charts, while keeping their family together through the trials and struggles that come along with the business.

The kids in the band are led by Dominique "Doe" Jones, the co-writer, vocalist, and acoustic guitarist and plays keyboards for the band.  Doe is also the youth worship leader at their church and feels like she carries the responsibility for the entire band's success on her shoulders.  D'Jeniele', the eldest of the five siblings, is married with two kids and working on managing her own family along with trying to manage the demands of being in a band.  Dewitt Jones IV is the oldest son, simply trying to find his place in the world. Judah, the drummer, is not only branching out for the first time vocally, he is also preparing to depart for college and must decide whether to continue with the band or pursue his athletic dreams. Mya, the youngest, has pure excitement, love and passion for worship and singing.  She joyfully sings background and is learning to play the guitar.

"Every family faces challenges, but Forever Jones spotlights a dynamic, highly relatable, loving and positive-energy family, who also happen to be a well-known band striving for success," said Billy Hall, EVP of Programming and Production for Bounce TV. "This series will provide real-world positive role models that our viewers hunger for, and is a perfect fit for our brand."
