Bishop T.D. Jakes is the host of a new talk show, slated to debut on BET this fall. The television program, which bears the name of the Dallas megachurch pastor is titled, T.D. Jakes Presents: Mind, Body & Soul. The network recently announced the show, which they refer to as “better talk,” along with a couple of other originally scripted series that made the fall lineup. A brief description of the new program, found on the network’s wesite reads:
“BET brings better talk with spiritual leader, educator and humanitarian Bishop T.D. Jakes as host of a brand-new talk show. Covering a wide range of topics including health and wellness, finance and relationships, Bishop Jakes unearths deeper conversations on the topics that matter to Black America. The areas of wellness, love and relationships deserve better conversations and deeper insights. Count on Bishop T.D. Jakes to provide plenty of both every Sunday.”
According to the Christian Post, this isn’t the first time Jakes and the Potters House attempted to develop a program of this nature. Back in 2009 the ministry attempted to develop a show for CBS, but as a result of the country’s suffering economy, it was never brought to fruition. It’s great to see that Jakes, whose Dallas church is home to an estimated 30,000 members, didn’t allow the minor roadblock to deter him in the pursuit of his dreams.
T.D. Jakes Presents: Mind, Body & Soul is scheduled to air every Sunday beginning this fall.
With all of that being said, will you watch?
