Bishop T.D. Jakes is gearing up to bring his brand of inspiration to a new talk show where he expects to spark national conversations about socially relevant topics.
Jakes, the 58-year-old senior pastor of The Potter’s House church in Dallas, Texas, will host the hour long series set to first broadcast in select markets from Aug. 17 through Sept. 11.
“This show provides a great platform to expand conversations, to be encouraging, positive, uplifting and help people work through tight places in their lives,” Jakes said in a statement shared with The Christian Post.
Noonan Drachkovitch, executive producer of the show, spoke to CP about the impact she hopes
the series, “T.D. Jakes” will have on the world.
“We want to create a provocative and entertaining daily television series that makes a difference, inspires change and creates a national conversation around the challenges and topics that each of us face as we try our best to navigate life, love and family,” Drachkovitch told CP. “We believe T.D. Jakes’ personal journey and insight will help viewers transform and improve their lives and relationships.”
The one month preview of the show will be featured on four TEGNA media stations this summer, which will include WFAA in Dallas, WXIA in Atlanta, KARE in Minneapolis, and WKYC in Cleveland, according to Alexandra Jewett, the executive vice president of programming at Debmar Mercury.
Speaking about Jakes’ personality, experience and influence, Jewett said The Potter’s House pastor “brings immense wisdom and counsel to everyday situations but he also navigates life with great humor and joy, and has had a tremendous impact on so many.”
