Another talk show is on the way. A new panel talk show, titled, The Preachers executive produced by former The View co-creator and EP Bill Geddie, has been announced. Viewers will get a three-week daily preview on Fox-owned TV stations in New York and Los Angeles beginning July 11.
The co hosts will feature outspoken preacher and pastors including: John Gray, a gifted musician and associate pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston; Dr. E. Dewey Smith Jr., senior pastor/teacher at The House of Hope Atlanta and The House of Hope Macon, GA; Orrick Quick, pastor and founder of God Seekers Church in High Point, NC; and Dr. Jamal Bryant, pastor and founder of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore
Produced by Telepictures Productions, the hosts will provide their unique takes on pop culture, news events and spirituality. The series marks Geddie’s return to daytime TV after 17 seasons on The View. Jeff Gaspin and Andrew Glassman will also serve as executive producers. EP Bill Geddie states,
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!
