When you mix laughter and inspiration together, what do you get? Steve Harvey and Bishop T.D. Jakes on a daytime talk show. Get ready for plenty of “fun-spiration” as the comedian hosts the preacher on an upcoming episode of NBC’s “The Steve Harvey Show.”
To build anticipation, Jakes and Harvey shared a couple pictures of the two of them posing together at NBC Studios on the social networking site, Twitter.
Though there has been lots of chatter about Harvey’s daytime talk debut, the funnyman, who recently retired from standup comedy, isn’t the only one with a new hosting gig.
Bishop T.D. Jakes is preparing to roll out his brand new show on Black Entertainment Television (BET). The Potter’s House pastor tweeted about the upcoming venture, telling his followers, “…Look 4 my NEW show on @BET soon.”
According to casting call information posted on ProjectCasting.com in August (The post has since been removed), BET was seeking audience members for “an inspirational and uplifting show” in Atlanta called “TD Jakes Presents…”
The casting call said this about the show:
"TD JAKES PRESENTS. . ." will be an hour show where Jakes will bring his own practical brand of wisdom to world events and situations that we are confronted by today. Jakes and his Famous Celebrity Guest will inspire, motivate, and uplift audiences by discussing the topics of the day and giving their point of views on the situation from life experiences. There is also a lot of Audience interactions and discussions, which gives you the Audience a chance to be apart of the show, talking to the guests and being on TV.
No official announcement has been made about the show, which means certain details are subject to change.
EEW Magazine will keep you posted as new information about Bishop Jakes' new BET show is revealed.
