Sneak peek: Montana Hutterites make TV debut tonight

Posted By on Tue, May 29, 2012 at 12:32 PM


The National Geographic Channel debuts an all-new series this evening that's sorta like "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," but the opposite.

"American Colony: Meet the Hutterites" follows the rituals and everyday living of a small religious colony in rural Montana. But instead of high-profile dalliances, tabloid follies and pimping luxury items like on the Kardashians, the Hutterites do stuff like kill a pig for the annual harvest party.

In fact, aside from that pig we're told the opening episode includes a major scandal at the harvest party. In the name of all that is holy, please don't let the scandal involve Kris Humphries.

"American Colony: Meet the Hutterites" debuts tonight at 8 (channel 165 if you're an Optimum customer). Watch a clip below, or visit National Geographic to see a slideshow of Hutterites by photographer William Allard, a part-time Missoula resident.
