Some of the most outspoken pastors of our time has been given the green light for a new talk show.
The Preachers is slated for a trial run on Fox this summer; with its first episode airing on July 11 at 11 a.m. EST.
Coming from the same producers as The View, the now highly anticipated talk show is set to star Jamal Bryant (pastor and founder of Baltimore’s Empowerment Temple AME Church), Dr. E. Dewey Smith (senior pastor at The House of Hope in Atlanta and The House of Hope Macon, G.A.), John Gray (worship leader and associate pastor of Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church) and Orrick Quick (pastor at Good Seekers Church in High Point, NC).
Executive Producer Bill Geddie said in a statement, “After The View, I figured I’d never do another panel show, but these preachers knocked me off my feet. They’re not just another set of talking heads yakking about the events of the day; they bring real-world experience as pastors and counselors. They have a unique spiritual take on things, and they’re funny as hell…I mean, heck!”
The new hosts made an appearance on The Real yesterday where they discussed the purpose of their show…
