The Tennessean reports:
A pair of serpent-handling Pentecostal preachers who were profiled in The Tennessean last year are getting their own reality television show. “Snake Salvation” is set to debut Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. Central time on the National Geographic Channel. The series will feature Andrew Hamblin of Tabernacle Church of God in LaFollette, Tenn., and Jamie Coots of Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church of Middlesboro, Ky. Coots said the series will feature scenes from church services where worshipers handle snakes as well as the day-to-day struggle to live out their faith. “The main thing is for people to see that there is more to us than wanting to handle snakes,” said Coots. Coots said he welcomes the attention that the show will bring. It also gives him a chance to share his faith with a wider audience than his small congregation.
