Syndie pulpit for Potter's preacher?


CBS Television Distribution is revving up its syndicated development slate for fall 2009. The distributor is developing a talk show that would be hosted by T.D. Jakes, head of nondemoninational church the Potter's House, who has made several appearances on the CBS-distributed "Dr. Phil." The project, from Dr. Phil and Jay McGraw's Stage 29, would center on such topics as relationships and family issues. Jakes, whose sermons can be seen on TV via Trinity Broadcasting, has written several books, including "Woman, Thou Art Loosed! Healing the Wounds of the Past." CBS declined comment. (Kimberly Nordyke)
