GAC Introduces Fans to the Supersized Willis Clan in New Series

The Willis Clan

The Willis Clan L to R: Jennifer, Jeanette, Jedi, Jessica, Jeremiah, Jackson

Toby and Brenda Willis make raising a large family look easy. The couple has 12 children, ages 2-21, who are accomplished singers, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and internationally-ranked competitive dancers. GAC will take viewers behind the scenes of this talented family in The Willis Clan, a new series premiering June 27 at 8/7c.

A normal day begins at 8 a.m. for the children and includes homeschooling and chores but also rehearsing for a dance competition or musical appearance, designing and creating the costumes worn when they compete or preparing to travel to a contest or gig. A few of the boys are following in their father’s footsteps as competitive wrestlers and have won a combined 12 state titles.  

The Willis Clan band, comprised of the oldest siblings, has created and sold an album of original material and has caught the ear of a major record label. They tour the U.S. and abroad, have opened shows for the likes of The Band Perry and are represented by a top artist manager.

“GAC did a special on the Willis Clan a little over a year ago and we continued to get great fan feedback on this incredibly talented and loving family,” GAC GM Sarah Trahern said. “They excel at so many things; we can’t wait to see what’s next for this unique family.”

Like GAC’s Farm Kings which focuses on a commercial farming family of 10 children, The Willis Clan continues to celebrate hard-working, tight-knit American families, their struggles and victories.
