NEW YORK (AP) — The GSN television network is looking to build on the success of “The American Bible Challenge” with a church-based dating show.

“The American Bible Challenge,” which just began its second season, is a runaway hit for the game show-focused cable network. Jeff Foxworthy is host of the show, which quizzes contestants on their Biblical knowledge. The show gets more than twice the viewers than anything else on the network.

GSN is developing “It Takes a Church,” where church parishioners compete to find a love interest for a single member of the congregation. GSN programming chief Amy Introcase-Davis said Tuesday that no air date has been set for the new show.

Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin has recently joined “The American Bible Challenge” as its musical director.
