'The Preachers' Have Arrived: Summer Preview Begins July 11th
Daytime television is being uplifted this summer.
On July 11th, FOX Television Stations and Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution will debut a three-week daily preview of “The Preachers,” an all-new take on the popular panel talk show format from Telepictures Productions that features four dynamic and outspoken preachers who are known for their electrifying and unique takes on pop culture, news events and spirituality.
Hosted by John Gray, Dr. E Dewey Smith, Orrick Quick, and Dr. Jamal Bryant, the series will air on select FOX-owned stations around the country.
“The Preachers” is executive produced by Emmy® Award winner Bill Geddie, marking this the return to daytime TV for the co-creator and longtime executive producer of “The View."
Jeff Gaspin and Andrew Glassman will also serve as executive producers.
“After ‘The View,’ I figured I'd never do another panel show, but these preachers knocked me off my feet,” said Geddie. “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 show will be a fun and energetic hour with moments of true inspiration. Collectively, the preachers have counseled thousands of people throughout America. Now it’s their turn to bring usable information, up-lifting inspiration and actionable motivation to television audiences everywhere.
“We are thrilled to continue our ongoing relationship with FOX. This latest endeavor features new faces and fresh voices with a unique point of view that is currently not on TV,” added Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.
“Religions vary, but we are all people and we all need hope,” said “The Preachers” co-hosts. “Hope is what we will bring you each and every day on this show, along with the ability to help and empower those in your life.”
