The Preachers Are coming to Daytime TV

The View, The Real and now The Preachers!

Telepictures Productions will feature four dynamic and outspoken preachers who are known
for their electrifying and unique takes on pop culture, news events, and spirituality.

The series will premiere July 11 on FOX-owned stations in New York and Los Angeles, with additional
select stations and markets to be announced in the future. The announcement was made jointly
making it a surprise to many even to their congregations. A few even admit that they are little nervous

“The Preachers” will be executive produced by Emmy® Award winner Bill Geddie, marking
the return to daytime TV for the co-creator and longtime executive producer of “The View” for
17 seasons. Jeff Gaspin and Andrew Glassman will also serve as executive producers. The show
will be produced by Telepictures.

“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 Preachers” will be hosted by:
· John Gray, a gifted musician and Associate Pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston,
under the leadership of Pastor Joel Osteen;

· Dr. E. Dewey Smith, Jr., Senior Pastor/Teacher at The House of Hope Atlanta and The
House of Hope Macon (GA), whose television broadcasts and media ministries are viewed by
millions around the world;

an advocate of the outreach ministry to serve his community;

The show will be a fun and energetic hour with moments of true inspiration. Collectively, the
