Who’s ready for a new talk show hosted by four megachuch pastors? Well, it’s in the works and it’s coming this summer. Deets inside….
There’s a new talk show coming to daytime television. And the hosts will be brining their religion to the panel.
Following the blueprint of “The View,” megachurch pastors Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr. (senior pastor/teacher at The House of Hope Atlanta), John Gray (musician/associate pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston), 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) have signed on for a brand new daytime talk show called "The Preachers set to debut on FOX this summer.
The four dynamic and outspoken preachers will debut a three-week hour-long daily preview where they will give their unique takes on pop culture, news events and, of course, spirituality. The new show is being executive produced by Emmy Award winner Bill Geddie, co-creator and longtime executive producer of “The View” for 17 seasons.
The show has been picked up by FOX Television Stations and Warner Bros for a summer test run kicking off July 11th on FOX-owned stations in New York and Los Angeles, with additional select stations and markets to be announced in the future.

As the pastors gear up for their talk show debut, they've been making promo rounds and posed it up in a photoshoot yesterday:
We wonder if Pastor Bryant will chat it up about his ex-wife Gizelle Bryant who stars on the "Real Housewives of Potomac" (which was renewed for a 2nd season). Things could get very interesting if she's invited as a guest on the show.
Peep their announcement and a clip from the show below:
