David and Jason Benham, whose real estate reality show was canceled by HGTV last week following a report that David Benham is an anti-gay activist, could land at the “traditional values” network INSP TV.

A couple of different networks could announce as early as this week that they are interested in forming a show starring the Benham brothers, among them is INSP TV, which reaches 75 million homes with content that honors “traditional values,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The brothers told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that, while HGTV had previously wanted them to host a real estate show, other networks were interested in them for different concepts, including shows that would have also focused on their wives and kids, their fitness routines and their various other business.

The brothers describe themselves as “serial entrepreneurs” who didn’t necessarily seek out a TV show, even though, prior to the gay-marriage controversy, they had been approached by five different networks.

HGTV pulled the plug on their show, “Flip It Forward,” which was to debut in October, after Right Wing Watch published a report labeling David Benham as an anti-gay “dedicated right-wing activist.

David Benham has said the “homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation” and that marriage equality “erodes the moral fabric of our society” and “threaten(s) future generations.”

On Thursday, the brothers released a statement that said, “Anyone who suggests that we hate homosexuals or people of other faiths is either misinformed or lying,” and professed, “We love Muslims and we love homosexuals.”

David Benham once referred to Muslims as “the enemy attacking” America.
