'Family Armor': Texans let TLC cameras into LDS home, business

Flying bullets, car chases and blowing up cars are what Trent Kimball uses as, well, research.

Kimball is the president and CEO of Texas Armoring Corp. where he and his workers bullet proof and fortify (think James Bond) all types of vehicles and test the results at their San Antonio shop.

His business, his Mormon faith and his family, along with that of his brother-in-law, Jason Forston, will be the focus of "Family Armor," an hour-long show Thursday, Nov. 19, on TLC at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central after "American Choppers."

Cameras were around during a family home evening with the Kimballs and Forstons and the families getting ready for church. "Family Armor" previews include shots of the San Antonio Temple, the Kimball family walking up the church and some other scenes at home mixed in with bulletproofing tests, blowing up cars and other work for Texas Armoring Corp.

"It's been a really interesting and a totally new experience," Forston said about been approached about the show and being filmed. "They came in and filmed a lot about our shop" including when they do some testing of bullet proof glass and some evasive techniques.

The production company had been looking for "an edgy, manly, family docuseries for quite some time," according to information from TLC. "When we heard about Trent Kimball's company and the James Bond'esq work he does on passenger vehicles we knew we had a hit."
